Reflecting on 2017 and Looking Forward in 2018

Looking back on the year of 2017

It was an opportunity for celebration and reflection of our many accomplishments. We have literally shared our You Matter message all over the world, from Scotland, Australia, Cyprus, Ireland, Nigeria, England, to the many places in the US. As I look back on the thousands of lives that we have touched I am reminded of the importance to never give up or let the voice of discouragement deter us from what is possible. Had I let a couple of influential people who told me that I wouldn’t succeed at this endeavor, dampen my desire to spread my message, there most certainly would have been lives lost. Thus the importance of surrounding yourself with people who encourage and support your dreams and desires, just like my two favorite songs, “Never Give Up” by Sia and “Riser” by Dierks Bentley, so beautifully illustrate for us.

I Believe in Purpose

I Believe in Purpose

I believe that everyone has a purpose. Though I am young, inexperienced and most likely perceived as naive to some, I truly feel that every single person on this Earth has a reason that they are a alive. Whether it is self-proclaimed or given by a divine being, every individual is so
unique in their personality, spirit, talents, and motivation that our short time here on Earth has to
mean so much more than a daily routine that seemingly affects no one but us. Whether one’s
purpose is to create a new medicine, discover a planet, touch lives with their musical abilities, or
motivate someone to continue living in order to find their purpose, I believe every human being
is alive for a reason, and that reason is found only by living. Read More »

“Let me tell you what death is like.”

LeAnn Hull thinks teenagers have been desensitized to death by violent movies and video games. It’s not like what they see on the screen. She wants them — and their parents — to understand.

So she tells them about her 16-year-old son, Andy. Read More »

Sometimes it’s important to take a minute to stop and reflect on the beauty around us and the blessings we have.

Bloom Where You Are Planted

Bloom Where You Are Planted

With every person comes a story and the opportunity for new beginnings.  This is definitely one of those times for me as my life has been turned upside down! I was born and raised during the sixties in Phoenix, where it still felt like a small town even though it was growing rapidly. Listening for the Ice Cream Man every evening and shooting chinaberries with my sling shot were common events. Climbing on my bike and riding to the baseball field where we slurped on slushies’ and just hung out until the sun faded and the smell of orange blossoms permeated our very thoughts was just part of summertime. Life was very carefree for me growing up. Of course there were challenges but in retrospect, they were minor compared to what lie ahead for me!   Read More »

The Little Things That Matter

The Little Things That Matter

C.E.O. LeAnn Hull, Founder

Every day brings a new barrage of information and happenings in our world. Often times I find that there is just too much data to process on a daily basis, which can lead me to being overly anxious, depressed or just plain discouraged. Lately, I have made a conscious effort to minimize my exposure to the news on the TV, Facebook, Twitter, etc. Now that’s not to say that I am advocating putting your head in the sand, I am merely stating that I needed a larger space for other input to flow into my life. Hopefully, you have heard me speak on the importance of getting involved in community and political activities if you wish to make a difference, which would require some degree of current and accurate information on the world affairs. So how do we manage this? What can one little person do to make a difference? Read More »
