Judi Moreo has been a mentor in my life for a long time.  Her ‘You Are More Than Enough’ philosophy continues to be an inspiration for me and for others who are fortunate enough to have worked with her.

Judi has a talent for bringing out the best in people and helping them break through the barriers and negative voices that keep them from realizing their true potential.

When Judi asked me to submit a story for Life Choices: Navigating Difficult Paths, I was in the final stages of finishing my new album Indiana Rain and had several projects in various stages of completion, including two books of my own.

I knew in my heart what I wanted to write about and the series of events that occurred in the following months helped focus in on how to approach my subject.

By taking the time out from my other projects to write my story I discovered a new perspective.  The process helped me see my story in different way and then it suddenly came into view.  In fact, once I started writing I couldn't stop.

The act of writing a single chapter for another book turned into a writing frenzy for me, which opened my eyes and not only helped me find a voice as an author, but it led to the writing of another song that was added to my album.

It has been a rewarding experience and an honor to come together with Judi and on this incredible journey with a group of authors to share our stories. I have enjoyed being part of ‘Life Choices: Navigating Difficult Paths'.
