Author Camron Wright is Today’s Honoree

CamronWrightCamron’s first book, Letters for Emily, was a Readers Choice award winner, as well as a selection of the Doubleday Book Club and the Literary Guild. In addition to North America, Letters for Emily was published in Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Korea, the Netherlands, and China.

His book, The Rent Collector, won Book of the Year, Fiction, from ForeWord Reviews; Best Novel of the Year from the Whitney Awards; and is a nominee for the prestigious 2014 International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.

His latest novel, The Orphan Keeper, will be released September 6th, 2016. Based on a remarkable true story of Taj Rowland. Seven-year-old Chellamuthu’s life is forever changed when he is kidnapped from his village in India, sold to a Christian orphanage, and then adopted by an unsuspecting couple in the United States.

It takes months before the boy can speak enough English to tell his parents that he already has a family back in India. Horrified, they try their best to track down his Indian family, but all avenues lead to dead ends. Meanwhile, they simply love him, change his name to Taj, enroll him in school, make him part of their family–and his story might have ended there had it not been for the pestering questions in his head: Who am I? Why was I taken? How do I get home? 

More than a decade later, Taj meets Priya, a girl from southern India with surprising ties to his past. Is she the key to unveil the secrets of his childhood or is it too late? And if he does make it back to India, how will he find his family with so few clues? From the best-selling author of The Rent Collector, this is a deeply moving and gripping journey of discovering one’s self and the unbreakable family bonds that connect us forever.

Camron currently lives with his wife, Alicyn, in Alpine, Utah. He is the proud father of four children (all girls but three).

Know Your Worth Radio Host Aaron Jordan is Today’s Honoree

AaronJordanAaron Jordan Jr. aka ‘Mr. Know Your Worth ‘Making a Variable Difference in the Lives of Many

By Deborah A. Culp

Aaron Jordan Jr. is called by many names and each of them has been well earned. ‘Mr. Know Your Worth’ (KYW) stems from his ‘Know your Worth’ Movement which includes (but is not limited to) an Annual Women’s Conference, bestseller listed books, workbooks to accommodate the books, a radio show and focus group for the show and workshops.  A bevy of speaking engagements – which can be tailored to fit the intended audiences and a soon, a full tangible product line to further crystallize the KYW brand and movement ahead.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               His audiences consist of both men and women, but mainly women. Teaching was clearly a part of his calling. He doesn’t get it twisted and he faithfully shares honest, key information with his eager audience. Via his impacting radio show (Know Your Worth) or in a seminar or public speaker setting. “Know when your Boo is being straight with you”, sounds catchy? Perhaps but in order to reach deep, he goes deep. The “Know Your Worth Brand” is all about educating his audience (no matter what size) about their invaluable, self worth. If one doesn’t know their worth, they may have no worth and it shows in their daily walk.  So often it’s the first step in allowing others to decrease another person’s value.

On Sunday, October 2, 2016 “Know Your Worth Presents 2nd Annual – Know Your Worth KYWWomen’s Relationship Conference Come Walk the Purple Carpet In Nashville.”  This year’s impacting guest speakers and participants are: Lady Shaunte’, Stellar Award Winning  Radio Personality and Mistress of Ceremonies, Tiffany Harden, CEO Once In a Wifertime- Speaker, Jae Henderson, Bestselling Author and Speaker, Michael Warren, Author, Speaker & Radio Personality and noted Reality TV Stars & Ministry Leaders, Marcus and Latisha Tankard.

As it did last year, a portion of the event proceeds will benefit the Mending Hearts, Inc organization. Based in the heart of Nashville, TN., and Mending Hearts, Inc.  Welcomes all clients who are seeking change from a life of drugs and alcohol addiction.

Aaron and the KYW brand and conference deals with a plethora of life situations: abused, domestic violence, low or no self esteem. Self loathing, substance abuse issues or spiritual bankruptcy, these are just a few issues that he and his team, (including his lovely wife Ashley Jordan) has helped raise awareness about and even more importantly, he has helped countless individuals to get to a better place in their lives, and stay there. Hence the  basis of the “Know Your Worth” Brand.

It didn’t happen overnight, one day Aaron and his supporters saw that the “Know Your Worth” brand had become a global movement. Through years of hard work, through a combination of components. Such as social media and his radio show, various speaking engagement and more.  Why? Because he and his concept are very real and they both get down and stay on point!

Support by his beautiful wife and life partner Mrs. Ashley Jordan, we asked her to briefly describe “her Aaron” and the reply was genuine, heartfelt and brought tears of joy to our faces.

“It’s true that they say opposites attract. My husband is very outgoing and I’m very reserved and actually quite shy. Nevertheless we work. He prayed for God to send him his God’s gift. My prayer list was a lot more detailed and very specific and God gave me above and beyond what I asked for or imagined in a husband. Neither of us can see ourselves without the other. Our love grows exponentially daily. Two imperfect people in an imperfect marriage that Gods love brought together so therefore, we ride the waves of this journey the best way we know how, holding on to each other for dear life and coasting,” stated Ashley.

*So save the date and mark it down now, join him at the “Know Your Worth Presents 2nd Annual Know Your worth Women’s Relationship Conference – Come Walk the Purple Carpet In Nashville.”

Tickets are affordably prices and there is still time for Sponsorships and to help support a deserving movement. The Sunday October 2nd event will be held at the Cool Springs Marriot, 700 Cool Springs Boulevard, Franklin, TN 37067 – (615) 208-3261

1400 Miles Founder Davis Tucker is Today’s Honoree

1400Founder, Davis Tucker began the 1400 Miles journey in September of 2013 motivated by his Brewmaster at NxNW Restaurant and Brewery and longtime friend, Don Thompson’s inspirational recovery from prostate cancer. In 2013, Davis wanted raise awareness about prostate health after he realized how little men speak about prostate health, and how crucial being able to discuss it with a doctor and family member can be to prolong a life. So, Davis used his two passions, bikes and beers, to begin to break down the social barrier, and spark a conversation about prostate health.

So, on Tuesday, September 24, 2013, Davis got on his road bike, and began the two week, 1,400 mile trek from Austin, Texas to Denver, Colorado in time for the Great American Beer Festival. Two weeks later, many climbs, tears, fears, scrapes and sore muscles, Davis rolled into Denver just in time to talk beers with 50,000 people!

One year later (2014), the organization grew to include the Austin Community Ride (one day ride with multiple distance options and same start/end location), and The Big Ride grew from 1 to 7 (3 rode the entire ride, and 4 joined for a stage).

In 2015, the organization continued to grow, adding a second Community Ride, Youngsville Community Ride, and The Big Ride grew into 14 (8 cyclists rode the entire ride and 7 joined on for a stage).

The journey has been tough, we have learned a lot, grown significantly, and are continuing to get inspired!
