Hey, my name is Andrew and when I was younger I used to stutter a lot. I was often picked on for it, especially in middle school. But when I went to high school I started working out. Working out gave me so much confidence that it brought my stuttering to a minimum. As a child I always dreamed of…

Laura was my 6th grade teacher; she helped me gain my self-respect and showed me the purpose in life. I am one in hundreds she has helped and she is an uplifting person who loves you for who you are. She is my heroine and I keep her close to my heart. I visit her as much as I can…
Fiquei feliz quando disseram que eu sabia guardar segredo, devemos ajudar e respeitar as pessoas em suas confidencias. I was glad when they said I could keep a secret, we should help and respect people in their confidences.

So inspiring!! I need to work on being confident in my looks, personality, and strenths instead of worrying about my flaws all the time. Confidence really is an important quality to have.

In my life I am searching for so much right now. Confidence and understanding what I am here to do with my life is a big ? mark right now. For me, I am trying to understand the purpose...right now it is my kids, professionally I am lost, I am even more lost in my convictions. I need a bolt of lighting to hit me in rain storm, get that ah ha moment and transform my life. Tonight, my year and a half year old son got second degree burns on both hands and I am beating myself up over it. My wife is at the ER while I am asking question after question. There is no greater importance than the kids you are responsible for bringing into this world. In closing, eventually peace will come, but not right now when you can't sleep.
