I Have A Voice by Tyler Williams Book Review

Our children are growing up and Hubby and I are committed to preparing them for life. An integral part of that preparation requires us to teach them about wining and failing.  Yes, failure.  In this society where winning is everything, it's important to teach kids the importance of failing.  

Wining is great but sometimes we don't win and for some the realization of not being numero uno is major.  Some never recoup from it.  Hubby and I want our kids to know failure means you tried and trying IS everything.  So what if you fail... at least you tried.

Everyone has a story... this is the story of Tyler Williams.  

Tyler Williams has known success. He has performed in Atlanta's famed Fox Theatre, raced down Victory Lane as a NASCAR driver, worked on hit film and TV shows, and sang for thousands in packed arenas. But Tyler has also known failure, devastating setbacks, and the pain of lost love. He knows how it feels to be lost, disconnected from himself and his passion.

Tyler tells his story of losing his "voice," navigating life for many years without it, then finding it again‹and finding himself in the process. I Have a Voice is full of life lessons that people both young and old will recognize. This is a book of hope, challenges and breakthrough moments. Tyler recounts his personal journey and uses his experience to help guide readers back to their own voices without dictating the steps to get there. Those who have lost their purpose, passion and "voice" will find renewal in his words.


My Thoughts:

Growing up can be difficult especially when you found constant successes at a young age.  Tyler Williams had it all but as he got older he lost himself amidst waning fame and glory.  His story is like that of so many who, like Tyler, lose their fervor for life when faced with life's challenges.  Tyler's story reminds us life is full of highs and lows but it's those valleys where we learn.  His story is perfect for young adults who may have recently graduated high school, or college or even those just out there who are just not sure about this thing called life.

Tyler speaks candidly about his experience of life, love, career and finances.  Tyler's wake-up call came after failure seemed to knock at his door time after time.  Sadly, he was so used to winning when failure knocked, he opened the door and failure knocked him on his feet every single time.  However, when he realized he had the power within him to meet failure face to face and win and win he did.  Way to go Tyler!  

Tyler's story is an uplifting tale of overcoming amidst self doubt and he shares how he found the inner strength to face doubt.

I remember when my daughter's guinea pig passed away.  She was so distraught.  Her beloved guinea pig was the first loss she ever experienced and it really hit her hard.  She was full of questions.  Questions Hubby and I didn't have the answers to.  

Will he go to Heaven?  Why didn't he take his body with him?  Can't you just breathe into him like you told me God breathed into Adam?  Kids have so many questions.  Mommy and Daddy ALWAYS have the answers... right?

5 Flattering Trendy Summer Fashions that Won't Break Your Piggy Bank

The Summer 2016 countdown has begun.  Temps are rising.  Sun is shining.  Time to pack away bulky Winter sweaters and whip out the sundresses.   

2016 Fashion Forecast calls for denim, coral, jumpsuits and rompers, bold jewelry and sundresses.  

1.  Denim is always on the forefront when it comes to Summer fashion and this year is no exception.  Denim shorts with frayed edges or rolled cuffs are haute.
2.  Jumpsuits and rompers are another stylish fashion choice for Summer 2016.  This black, cropped, halter jumpsuit paired with a pair of wedges is sure to make a statement.  Saucy enough to wear to the office and sassy enough to wear to the club, jumpsuits can go from 9 to 5... that's 9 a.m. to 5 a.m. in the club.  
3.  Coral is the color of Summer 2016.  Whether you're rocking coral in a jumpsuit, rompers, sundress, or as an accessory, coral is the color of Summer.  Alight has tons of coral and other hot Summer colors for plus size divas like myself.  Alight offers stylish, affordable fashions in sizes from 12 - 34.   Check out these Coral fashions...
4.  Whether it's a dress, a jumpsuit or romper, pair with some gladiator sandals and big bold jewelry to complement your Summer look.  Did I mention Alight offers accessories to pair with your Summer outfit?  

Check out these fab pieces from Marlene Pieces, one of the featured product lines at Alight.com.
5.  Sundresses reign supreme on the Summer 2016 fashion list.  There's just something about seeing me in a sundress that my husband loves.  In fact, he often recites lyrics of that Coco Brown tune titled "Sundress" which Coco Brown says "The soul of your femininity fits you just like that dress ...you see, I don't need to see designer clothes, silk robes, or fish net pantyhose. Cause to me, that sundress you wear is the next best thing to you naturally…"
I love the feel of a dainty sundress against my Summer skin and they pair so nicely with a pair of heeled sandals or a dainty thong sandal.  Alight sundresses are true to size and perfect for hot Summer days and cool Summer nights.

To celebrate these flattering, trendy Summer fashions that won't break your piggy bank, Alight is giving one lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog the opportunity to win an item from Alight.com.
