Proverbs 16:3 Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and he will establish your plans. It’s no secret that our business platform and my personal life have been tremendously blessed by my deep friendship with Kathie Lee Gifford. Christina Lari spotted one of Kathie Lee’s promotions of my books on The Today Show, visited our site to learn more about me and my work, and shared it with her mother in law, the renowned potter, Clare Potter. Clare’s work is simply stunning in its detail and inspiring in its craftsmanship. The week after our life changing trip to Nashville, I was humbled to be invited by Christina to a spend an evening in Clare’s penthouse apartment surrounded by 35 of their closest friends and share my story and my heart for giving back. Thanks to the generosity of Clare and Christine’s friend, we sold out of the books, note cards and candles we’d brought along with us. Additionally, we were able to give $5,000 to benefit Cassidy’s Place, the pre-development center in Manhattan, started by Kathie Lee, to provide impoverished 3-5 year olds with stimulation and learning. Kathie Lee’s charity also runs Cody’s Place, a pre-development center for 18 month to 3 year olds. Both Cassidy’s Place and Cody’s Place were started in response to the AIDS epidemic and the need for development and education among the local community living in poverty. In this season of Christmas, I want my heart to be aligned with God’s heartbeat and to be generous to those in need who are placed in my path. There is an opportunity for you to give back. Through my business opportunities, I’ve been able to give financially, but out of your passions and gifts, there is an opportunity for giving as well – volunteer hours, meals, childcare and more.
