There is a certain air of grace in Moira Shepard. And it’s catching. I consider myself lucky to have spent some time in her presence and recommend others do the same. She’ll uplift your spirits while empowering you to do more. Read—no, study—the words in her chapter “The First Key to Confidence: Master Your Mind.”
Tammy is an inspiration. We were introduced and shortly after she jumped into Rising Stars with both feet, gave it her all and impressed me with both her work ethic and writing ability. Tammy has a greater story to tell—that will be in her solo book—but for now you get a piece of her ability to connect with readers, especially parents, facing questions about how to protect their children from bullies. If that’s you, I recommend that you read (and re-read) her chapter, “Conversations That Matter.”
You can’t help but smile when you spend time with Roberta. In her chapter, “It Only Takes A Smile,” she gives an in-depth look at what to do—and how to do it—to feel better. (Something needed now more than ever.) If you’re looking for someone to speak of the importance of positivity, Roberta is there for you. She’s a generous and giving human being I’m honored to know. I also recommend checking out her online offerings and videos—she’s a winner in my book!
In what’s turned into a crazy time, Cory is a calming presence to have around. She’s also always quick to point out the good that is happening around her—and the good in the people in her life. In her chapter, “When Hurt Is Gone, You Change,” she shares a story about how what we say and do can impact those around us. Cory is a shining example of what happens when someone focuses on the positive. She’s a joy to be around.
Julaina has a dry wit that makes me laugh every time we talk. If you’d ask her how her practical-bordering-on-optimistic attitude came about, she’d probably say, “Naturally.” (This woman has been through a lot.) In her chapter, “The ‘C’ Word,” she talks about her mother’s battle with cancer and tells the story in such a way that not only do we get a glimpse of the character that was her mom, but we get a peek into the wonderful, talented woman she raised.
Now, let’s get started with the stars!
