Truly inspired

I love going to book signings and author readings. Always have, long before I even embarked on this path to try and get published. I've waited for hours for celebrities, and been one of just a few listening to a combat veteran share his story. And each is special in its own way.

But the other night, I had the experience of a lifetime at a book signing/reading of my oldest friend. Not many people can say they still keep in touch with someone from kindergarten. Even fewer can say they are inspired daily by this person. But Christophe is beacon of light in this often dark world and we're all better for knowing him.

I brought my whole family, little ones included, into the packed library to hear him share his story. Heart transplants {yes, that is plural} kidney transplant, diabetes, myofibrillar myopathy, and more emotional struggles than a person should have to deal with, Christophe has confronted it all. He doesn't sugar coat the hard days and never discounts the struggles others go through every day. But he fights, every single day, for the life he wants, never letting anything limit the dreams and fun he wants to have. He reminds us all that the most important thing you can do in this life is love hard, and always tell the people you care about how much they mean to you.

So go check out his book, {1 Man, 3 Hearts, 9 Lives} be inspired, tell someone you love them today. Purchase it here on Amazon . And don't just take my word for it. The book has all 5 star reviews!!
