Dear Friends and Neighbors....


Growing up in the Smoky Mountains was a real blessing.  There were some tough times, but most of our life was full of the kind of riches money can never buy.  One of my most precious memories is sitting in my mother's lap and listening to her read me stories from the Bible.  It felt so warm and cozy.  My imagination soared to places far beyond our cabin.


Those wonderful moments with my mother inspired me to create my Imagination  Library.  Thanks to Fremont Area United Way, all of the preschoolers in your communities can now have their own Imagination Library.  Just think, a book mailed to your child each month until their 5th birthday!


I hope these books inspire you to read to your child.  There is nothing quite like the sparkle in a child's eye when animals come alive and clowns dance on the page.


I hope you'll encourage your children to keep dreaming and to dream big.  If my Imagination Library helps turn the dreams of a child into the promise of a bright future, then one of my biggest dreams will come true.


And remember....

I will always love you,
