On June 3, 2010, I spoke to a group of homeschoolers at the Allen County Public Library in downtown Fort Wayne, Indiana. This lovely facility has been a favorite of mine since it opened in 2007. It is spacious, aesthetically appealing with a great hall that reminds one of the dining hall in Harry Potter movies. Of course, the resources available there are outstanding as well. I’ve written many articles and books using their materials.
My 45-minute talk focused on the importance of dreaming to see your goals in life achieved. I led them through a brief exercise to help them understand the concept of dreaming, which should be done daily for maximum effect.
Cathy Lambert, Young Adult Librarian at Allen County Public Library, had this to say about my remarks to the group:
“Kayleen Reusser’s talk was very inspiring. As I watched the faces of those in attendance (22 in all, from toddler to older adults) I could tell she related well to all ages. Aside from the specific information she gave about the writing/getting published process, I found Ms. Reusser to be an excellent motivational speaker. I know this both from feedback and for myself personally… Ms. Reusser is a great example of a person who has set a goal and taken steps to achieve it. She needs to keep telling her story! We plan to have her return to discuss future books.”

Have a terrific day! You’re special. Believe that. I do.
