About the Inspiration

Amy was inspired to write "The Magic of Words" while reading to her daughters. They would focus on a certain word, and talk about a memory or feeling associated with that word. This made her realize how magical words can be, and all the thoughts that are created from one single word! Amy continues to be inspired by her daughters and her students. She hopes that everyone can find words that feel magical to them, and to always know the power of hope and possibility.
