It’s Worth It: An Encouraging Words Episode


When there’s so much going on in the world, it can be easy to feel like there’s little to nothing you can do to make a difference. But there are lots of things that you could do.

In this episode I mentioned that City Hearts Sweden ( is doing a lot to help Ukrainians near the border and those seeking refuge in Sweden.

I also noted that there are lots of organizations near you, wherever you live, that could use some help. For example, my sister runs a 501(c)3 charity in Michigan called CHUM Therapeutic Riding. During the pandemic, they couldn’t always be open for their clients but the horses still have to eat every day. If you’d like to help feed a horse, you could donate to CHUM (, or find an organization closer to where you live or that matches your passions.

Helping others — whether physically, financially, or emotionally — helps us to feel better about the things we can’t control. And keep writing! Your book could make a difference in the world!
