A few weeks back I listed and thanked many of the people who have helped Linda and I with getting You’re Amazing to this point. Today I would like to thank two of our newest angels who are helping us with our latest challenges. Cheryl Schuman, who is a long-time friend, is currently making curtains for behind the timeline. We also want to thank the newest member of our team, Shane Brown, who is an incredible professional website designer and a wizard at social media marketing. The next sentence is for Shane – Hey Shane – I actually think I am starting to understand social media marketing!
My lady and I are tired this week. We have been working really hard to get the message of You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! out and like everyone, we have our good days and we have our bad days. We would appreciate all good thoughts coming our way, some people call them prayers, I call them good thoughts.
If you are a spiritual person
and the vast majority of us are, then you believe in a higher power. Well, we
live at the first time in all of history that science has, through math and the
space program, proven a higher power exists. I actually have a speech I give which
goes through the steps of how science has proven this.

& Noble workshop in Kingston, NY on June 8, 2019.
This is a post of gratitude. We would like to thank everyone who has gotten us this far, starting with our awesome layout and design man Joe Tantillo who is also somewhat of a mentor and helped us with building our team, his wife Maura Shaw-Tantillo who helped in many different ways, Susan Uttendorfsky of Adirondack Editing – our brilliant editor, and our amazing illustrator Rich Molinelli. That is just the beginning of the people we need to thank. Matt Yerkes of Yerkes Photography and Dorothy Wills-Raftery, who is my wife’s long-time friend and an author and professional photographer, who helped us get started and have been in our corner since day one.
I have been told, as far back as I can remember, that crime (evil)
pays and that good people always end up last. I know for a fact; goodness pays
and crime (evil) leads to an extremely turbulent life.
A friend of mine relayed the following story involving her eleven-year-old
daughter, Sarah (not her real name.) Sarah was one of a number of children who
were selected to be an extra in a movie. Sarah was very excited. She wanted to
look her best so she asked her mom (Rebecca – not her real name) if she could
get her hair and nails done. Of course, her mom said yes. So off to the salon
I don’t know how many of you remember Dr. Robert Schuller
who had an evangelist television show called The Hour of Power. He had built
his ministry up from nothing and had a cathedral that he built called the
Crystal Cathedral because it was all glass. The story I am about to tell you is
one that he told on his show years ago. The reason I’m telling it is because it
shows that when life gets really rough, you can let it break you or you can
embrace it and use it to accomplish great things.
My lady Linda (wife) and I are getting some much-needed rest and relaxation in the mountains of Massachusetts. We will be back to go full steam ahead next week. Some great possibilities are ahead. Keep us in your prayers.
As always we appreciate any comments and stories that you might have for us to share. Comment below or send us a message on the contact form of this website. See you next week!
