What’s Inspiring You This Week?
Here’s What’s Inspiring Me!

Stand Strong – You Can Overcome Bullying

Stand Strong

A man with no arms and no legs might be considered
A bully’s dream – but once you learn that
God has a plan and a purpose for your life,
You learn that no bully can define who you are!

If you have ever been bullied – no someone who has –
Or have ever bullied someone yourself – you need to read
Nick Vujicic’s powerful book, Stand Strong.

His anti-bullying strategies can literally save the life of someone you love!

Music To Inspire You – Barry Gibb
The Last Bee Gee Goes It Alone

This week, for Music Moves Me, I am celebrating Barry Gibb –
The last surviving member of the iconic music group, The Bee Gees!

On Wednesday night, Barry ended his Mythology tour –
A brief run of concerts designed to celebrate
The breadth and depth of music he made with his brothers Robin and Maurice –
At the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.

I hope you enjoy this week’s video tribute to a living legend!

Talent is timeless.

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

      I remember falling in love with the Bee Gees as a little girl and listening to them with my grandmother –
      bonding over their music with one of my best friends in high school –
      and enjoying them throughout the decades!

      I wish I had known about the Mythology concert before hand – would have loved to have tried to attend that one!

      So glad you enjoyed the videos!
