Books That Moved Me:

  • The Stand – by Stephen King (taught me to pay attention to important clues in books – they matter in the end!)
  • Callings – by Gregg Levoy (made me more aware of how to listen for truth)
  • Are You There God? It’s Me,  Margaret – Judy Blume  (helped me understand my adolescent angst)
  • The Spark, The Flame, The Torch – by Lance Secretan (reignited my heart and reminded me that my gifts don’t belong to me)

Favorite Movies:

  • The Joy Luck Club – taught me the importance on knowing your worth; the strength of friendship and that imperfections are a necessary part of life
  • The Color Purple – contained so much that to this day it leaves me speechless
  • The Shawshank Redemption – masterfully captured heartache, despair, patience, endurance, friendship, joy and love
