How is everyone doing? I hope everyone is staying healthy. Our tech guru Shane has told us that he wants to offer the You’re Amazing class that I teach as a FREE webinar online. We can’t shoot it in front of a live crowd right now because of the health crisis. Due to this, we are going to have our good friend, who is an awesome photographer and videographer, Matt Yerkes, film it for us at a conference room. So that is our focus this week, practicing and preparing for the class. We will let you know when it is up and running.

As you know, my screen name is Neal – The Crazy Inventor and I do have the aptitudes of an inventor. There are many things about an inventor that I can tell you, but for this blog the only thing that is important is that, as an inventor, I want to know how and why different governments work the way they do.

I’m not going to go into every government in this blog. I will go down through different governments in different blogs. I will tell you as an inventor whether the particular government I am talking about is a government that I want to live under. But I’m also not going to tell you whether this is a government that you should or should not desire to live under. I’m just going to tell you about the particular government and how It works.

Because of the medical issue that is going on in the world right now –  I have to write it that way, because if I write it another way, this blog could be blocked – I’ll start with the government of the origin of the medical crisis that is going on in the world today. We all know what country this is and we all know what their government system is. So. the question is how does the government of the point of origin of the health crisis in the world today work?


Hope everyone is doing well. The young lady in the photo above is our beautiful granddaughter. It has been a busy week here at Knowledge Is Freedom Publishing. We hope you all had a chance to see my Easter video either on Facebook or on my Neal – The Crazy Inventor YouTube channel. Our tech guru Shane also uploaded another video to my channel last week entitled “How Two Spiders Changed My Life”. For those of you that are squeamish about spiders, the spiders are the ones that Lady Linda and I made, so no need to worry about scary spiders.

Today, I made another video that we just sent to Shane to get his feedback. Keep an eye out. That video should be up on my channel soon also.

We are also working on a webinar for the class that I teach on the concepts of You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! If all goes well, and our friend Matt Yerkes (a great photographer/videographer) is available and we can schedule a conference room, we should be able to shoot that next week.

Now for this week’s story:

As all of us do, I make my decisions based on past experiences. For four months after my kids suddenly lost their mother they had one major loss after another. The thing I was most concerned about, as far as my kids were concerned, is the fact that they had no past experiences dealing with grief. They had no reference points in dealing with the sudden death of their mother, much less all of the other losses.


Hope everyone is doing well at this crazy time for all of us. Our story this week is about this time and how history shows us things are going to get better, a lot better. So, make sure you read the story. As always, the first part is what we have done in the past week. If you are interested to know what we have been doing, read the first part. If you just want to know things are going to get better, read the story.

Lady Linda and I have had a lot of time at home to work on the Knowledge Is Freedom Publishing business. We have been taking photos of our discount packages that we are going to offer in our Gift Shop at  I wrote some coaching programs that I sold for many years with my first lady Deb. I have written new editions of these programs that we will be offering in our Gift Shop along with other products that we are researching.

There is a new video that I recorded for my Neal-The Crazy Inventor YouTube channel which our tech guru Shane has entitled “How Two Spiders Changed My Life”. Shane wanted me to take a photo of myself with two plastic spiders for the thumbnail photo. Well, you cannot believe how difficult it is to find plastic spiders when it isn’t Halloween and delivery services are shut down. So, we decided to make our own spiders. Lady Linda went online and found directions to make some and now we have our spiders. In the near future, you will see new videos on my channel and also photos on my website designed to prove to you that You Are Amazing! and at the same time give you information you can use to better your life.

Now for this week’s story:

We all have things that anger ourselves about ourselves. One of the things that bothers me about myself is that I tend to move toward the positive side. Most people would think that thinking positive would be a good thing. However, for me there are some times when I just want to experience the emotion of the moment, without reasoning my way through it. But I can’t help myself. What I mean by this is I just try to find something positive about whatever it is that I’m going through. I think I have told you in the past that my first wife and childhood sweetheart suddenly died at the age of 38. Well what could you possibly find good in this situation? After the initial shock, I started thinking to myself how lucky I was to have known her. She literally made me the man I am today. We grew up together, but I digress. The point is, find something positive in whatever it is you’re going through. (This is for my son David. You don’t where I’m going with this, so you have to read the whole thing).

Right now, many of us are very worried about finances because of this pandemic. So, I decided to see if I could look back in history to find out what the financial situations were coming out of a pandemic.

It appears that the economy, and this directly should transfer to your pocket, coming out of a pandemic pretty much mimics the economy going in. If the economy was bad going into a pandemic, it only stands to reason, and history shows, that the economy will be bad coming out of the pandemic. On the other hand, when you go into a pandemic with a good economy, history shows that on the other side of the pandemic the economy will be good. But the news is even better than that, it appears that if the economy was good going into the pandemic, then coming out of the pandemic, the economy explodes.  

So, if in the short term here you are struggling, and God knows a lot of us are, including me, hang in there. Things are going to get a lot better. You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It!

You can now buy my book, You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! in our gift shop at We also have t-shirts available and will soon be adding exclusive bonus packages and other products. If you are a Kindle user, you can purchase You’re Amazing on Amazon in Kindle format. If you have already read You’re Amazing, I would greatly appreciate you giving it a review on Amazon (If you would like, we have a little form that walks you through the simple step-by-step review process. Just send me an email and I will send it to you.) It will help us spread the message of positive self-esteem and self-acceptance. All of us together can heal the world one person at a time.

As always, I welcome your comments and stories. If you would like to follow my blog, please click on the plus (+) sign in the upper left-hand corner of this page. See you next week!

I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. It is a crazy time, but this will come and go. As an inventor, I’m trying to look ahead and see the future. The question I have is “What kind of inventions are going to come out of these hard times?” When I speak of inventions, I’m speaking of everything that is new that has come directly out of this situation as an invention. I personally have always thought that the handshake was one of the worst greetings anyone could give another person. So, it appears that the handshake will go by the wayside, but what will replace it and who will invent it?

Last week I wrote about how we all can get through this corona virus time. Like all of us, Lady Linda and I are on edge and uncertain about what’s to come. Because of this, there are times when we don’t treat each other with the kindness and understanding we normally would. So, when you find yourself starting to treat others around you unkindly, what should you do?


Welcome! Lady Linda and I hope that everyone is well and safe, and enjoying some quality time with their family. We’re sending good thoughts to all of you. This week has been strange and wonderful all at the same time. We have a part-time housecleaning business that supplements our Knowledge Is Freedom Publishing business. And like many of our friends and followers, it is an uncertain time. We have been able to get a lot done in regard to working on products for our new gift shop on  It is a lot of work, but also a lot of fun. We hope soon to be able to have t-shirts, hats, etc. with the book cover printed on them.

Dealing with Hard Times Through an Inventor’s Eyes

Obviously, we’re all going through some really hard times. As Neal – The Crazy Inventor (That is my YouTube channel – check it out) anytime I’m going through hard times, I look back at other hard times to get reference points. These reference points give me ideas on how to deal with the present hard times.


Happy Wednesday! We hope all of you are healthy and safe. It is a crazy time to live, but you have to admit, it’s not boring. Last week we found out that another of the podcasts that I was honored to be a guest on was aired on February 24. This podcast is The Empowered Whistleblower with host Dawn Westmoreland. Dawn’s podcast discusses strategies to stand up to bullying and discrimination for adults and children. It was awesome to be on Dawn’s show – what a great fit for You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! Our tech guru Shane will be putting my podcast interviews together in video form so that we can share them on social media and through my websites.

Also, remember to check out our new gift shop at We will have bonus packages and a variety of products being added soon.

Now for this week’s story!

Three weeks ago, on 2-26-20, in my blog entitled “Set Each Other Free”, I showed you two men fighting when finally, one man gets the other down. I then asked you who the winner was? The answer, according to a crazy inventor, is neither man. As long as the two men are trying to control the other, they spend all their time and energy trying to keep the other man down. This in turn holds both men down.

However, so far what I have shown you is only two men. What happens if you apply the theory to history and the different so-called great societies? If you go back 5,000 years you will find societies that were based on slavery (one man holding another down). Remember I have the aptitudes of an inventor so I am going to look at everything through the eyes of an inventor (well, a crazy inventor).


Welcome! Hope your week has gone as well as ours! We always like to tell you who is in the photo of the week. This is a photo taken when Lady Linda and I were married. The other young lady in the photo is Linda’s Aunt Louise (who was 88 at the time). She gave Linda away, since Linda’s Mom had gone to the spirit world before we met. It was another busy week at Knowledge Is Freedom Publishing (in case we haven’t mentioned before, this is our publishing company. It is the company that we published You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! through.).

As we told you last week, two of the podcasts that I was a guest on were aired – Be Awesome with Dr. Kristina Hallett and Heroes Like You with Joe Belliston. We want to thank Kristina and Joe for the honor of being a guest on their shows. Our tech guru, Shane will be creating videos of them so that we can share them in various ways, but he has been busy this week creating our Gift Shop on It is truly AMAZING! We did the final steps with him on Monday to get the Shop up and running and ready to take orders! At this point we have the book available in paperback, hard cover, and digital form, as well as two different styles of t-shirts. We will be adding more t-shirts and other products soon. If you have any ideas of products that you would like to see offered, please contact me.

Now for this week’s story:


Hi everyone. Hope you had an Amazing week. This past week has been a busy week for us, but first of all we would like to send out prayers to our friends in Nashville, TN that were hit by the tornado. Lady Linda has many friends in Nashville and she was so glad to see on Facebook that her friends were safe.

Two of my podcast interviews are airing this week. The Be Awesome podcast with Dr. Kristina Hallett aired Tuesday, March 3, 2020. Also, my interview on the Heroes Like You podcast with Joe Belliston will be aired on Thursday, 3-5-2020. As soon as we have links we’ll let you know.

Our tech guru Shane is working on a shopping cart for  In the meantime we have the black t-shirt that we have had for awhile (There Are No Throw-Away People) and we just added a royal blue t-shirt that says You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It!  Also he will soon be adding two new videos to my Neal – The Crazy Inventor YouTube channel that I shot last week. Check it out and leave a comment – tell me I’m nuts! Let’s have fun!

Now for this week’s story:

As you already know I was born essentially blind. Because of this I had the rare privilege to get to know people by sensing their spirits rather than seeing their physical form. This ability to sense people’s spirits is the reason I know for a fact that people are good. People are really good.


Happy Wednesday! The young man in the photo above with his back to us (#4) calling for the ball, is our 9-year-old grandson Riley.

As you know I have the aptitudes of an inventor. Because of this I tend to see things a little differently. In You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It! I show the reader that bullying hurts everyone involved, but it hurts the bully more than anyone else. The following example is not the example I use in the book, but for this blog it’s a great place to start.

I want you to picture two men fighting. They are really going at it punching, kicking, scratching, and biting. You name it, the two men are doing it in this vicious fight because they know the winner gets to control the other man. After some time one of the men is able to get the other man down on the ground and is sitting on him. The man on top has the other man pinned to the floor. He’s holding his arms and legs to the floor while he is sitting on him.

The question is, which of these men do you think is the winner? Is it the man on the bottom being held to the floor, or the man on top holding the other man to the floor?


Welcome. I hope everyone is doing well. The first thing I want to tell you is that the young man in the photo above is our 7-year-old grandson, Nathan.

Last Thursday I was a guest on The Empowered Whistleblower podcast with Dawn Westmoreland. On her podcast she discusses strategies with her guests to stand up to bullying and discrimination for adults and children, which was a perfect fit for You’re Amazing And I’ll Prove It!  I had a great time and we will let you know when the podcast is aired and we have a link to it.  In the meantime check out her podcast at

We are getting some views on our Science Proves God Exists video on my Neal – The Crazy Inventor channel on YouTube. Check it out if you haven’t had a chance yet and share it with everyone.

Our tech guru, Shane, is working hard. He has written a new book description for Amazon and is helping us with writing other items for advertising, as well as running our advertising campaigns. He is such a blessing – we really needed help in the marketing area. Go Shane!

Now for this week’s story:

Throughout our lives we are all going to be put into situations that are nerve-wracking and extremely difficult to handle. When these times happen what should we do? How do we go about handling the difficulty that’s about to come our way?
