AJ Harmon was blessed with a village in her very own family. Born in Perth, Western Australia to English parents, AJ grew up on the beaches in the summer and studiously studying English, music and languages during the school year. Reading, dancing and cooking filled the rest of her time. Moving to the United States as a teenager opened her up to not only a new culture, but a faster paced life and eventually to her own Prince Charming as well. Now married for 29 years to her sweetheart, AJ is still perfecting their own happy ending, and loving every minute of it.
When AJ came home one day from her accounting job and announced to her husband that she was writing a book–after the initial shock wore off–he immediately went to work on preparing marketing plans and strategies. As a small business marketing strategist, he was excited at the prospect of playing in the ‘big league’ with the giants of the publishing industry. Never shying away from a challenge, he was up to the task and took AJ on as his number one client. Turning to her son next, AJ has come to rely on him for most everything else.

This inspirational word of the day comes from Proverbs 11:22 (ERV). This word is entitled; " Because I Love Me". I wanted to take a moment and share with my listeners, in particular my fellow women, how important it is to truly love the skin you are in. As women God truly wants us to love ourselves the way He truly loves us. There is nothing more rewarding than knowing who you are and the gifts that God Almighty has given you. Embrace this life and find solace in yourselves as women. So here it is from " Daughters of The King Daily Devotional", my inspirational word of the day. I pray it will be a blessing to you.

We are joined by Michael Thal retired from his teaching job when he was 51 years old due to a severe hearing loss. Rather than give up on life, he pursued a new career as a writer. Since 2001 he’s penned 3 published novels with a new one coming out this fall. He’s also written over 80 published articles for print magazines like Highlights for Children, San Diego Family Magazine, and Writer's Digest, to name a few.
Michael was inspired to write Goodbye Tchaikovsky due to a severe hearing loss at the age of 44. He left his job as a tenured sixth grade teacher seven years later because he couldn’t understand his students. Michael wrote Goodbye Tchaikovsky wondering what it would have been like if his hearing dropped out as a teen.
Goodbye Tchaikovsky is not just a novel about main character, David Rothman’s experience of transitioning between a hearing and deaf world. It is an emotional autobiography of hearing loss. Deafness is an unseen disability. We know a man is blind by the cane he uses to guide his walk. Her wheelchair easily identifies a disabled woman with Cerebral Palsy. Deaf people have to continuously remind others to talk slow so deaf people have a chance to understand their speech. Deaf are alone in crowds. They are isolated at parties. David’s story brings this conundrum alive to its readers.
Approximately (36 million) American adults report some degree of hearing loss. About 2-3 out of every 1,000 children born in the U S are born deaf or hard-of-hearing. The National Institute on Health estimates that approximately 15 percent (26 million) of Americans between the ages of 20 and 69 have high frequency hearing loss due to exposure to loud sounds or noise at work or in leisure activities. There are 4,000 new cases of sudden deafness occur each year in the United States. Yet deafness is the only disabilty where people get mad at the deaf
