What’s Inspiring You This Week?
Here’s What’s Inspiring Me!
This month, I am proud to be part of the Book Launch Team for
Never Ever Give Up – The Inspiring Story Of Jessie And Her Joy Jars!
It is the inspirational story of a young girl who was diagnosed with an
Inoperable and incurable brain tumor when she was 11 years old –
But who was more concerned about the care and welfare of the other
Young patients around her than her own personal needs!
As a result of one simple question –
“What can we do to help them?” –
A simple act of compassion has grown into a foundation that now is
Impacting the lives of children with cancer around the world!
Please stop by to learn more about Jessie’s story and childhood cancer at
Never Ever Give Up and help spread the word about this wonderful book!
This is just one of the many fabulous books I’ve read as of late!

Music To Inspire You – Downtown Train
Welcome to Music Moves Me!
This week, Danielle of Royalegacy has chosen an unusual musical theme:
Songs about trains or songs with the word train in it!
I’m always in the mood for a good love song –
So my pick for the week is Rod Stewart’s version of Downtown Train –
A song he took to #3 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 1989, and
Number 1 on the Adult Rock and Adult Contemporary charts!
He also went to #1 in Canada with this song –
Made the Top Ten Singles Chart in the UK –
And earned himself a Grammy Nomination for Best Male Pop Vocalist!
What’s your favorite Train-themed song?
Share your picks in the comments –
Or better yet, share your video pick at the party!
Talent is timeless.
