Inspiring Story of Overcoming Challenges

John O’Leary shares two life-changing love letters he’s written and challenges you to write one on the Live Inspired Podcast.

Are you ready to celebrate Valentine’s Day right this year?

This holiday is about so much more than Hallmark cards and boxes of heart-shaped chocolates. It’s about the power of love – all love not just romantic love – in our lives.

I’ll share two love letters I’ve written, the life-changing impact they’ve had and challenge you to write one, too. [The winner of the challenge will get a $100 gift card to take their loved-one to their favorite restaurant.] Today’s episode will leave you ready to live (and love!) inspired on Valentine’s Day… and everyday.

Will you accept the #LoveLetterChallenge?

  • Every day in 2017, I (secretly) wrote my wife a love letter in a leather-bound journal, presenting it to her on Christmas.
  • Jack Buck changed my life, but I never really said thank you. After his death, I wrote a love letter to him and shared it with his wife and son, with hope + reassurance that Jack felt it too.
    • Joe Buck, Jack’s son, was on ep. #3 of the podcast.
    • I shared my story + Jack Buck on ep. #32 of the podcast.
    • The MLB Network produced a video on my unlikely friendship with Jack Buck. Check it out here.
  • I mention the love I have for my mom Susan O’Leary. Listen to her on preview ep. #0 of the podcast.
