Cell phones are as much a part of our DNA as driving, and we wouldn’t leave home without them. Let’s fact it, everything from phone numbers to our bank accounts are stored in there, and without it, we’d be lost.

It’s a fascinating read, rich in history and tradition, and quite clever. Jennifer is also an artist, whose artwork brings up comparisons of Grandma Moses, and her work is whimsical and nothing short of extraordinary.

Deborah Kobylt LIVE: Bobby Henline & Nony Geffen

Sometimes, we need to take a look at what life has thrown at us, and find the humor in it. And that’s just what retired Army Sgt. Bobby Henline did.

Henline was veteran of Desert Storm in his teenage years, and re-enlisted after 9/11/01. Sadly, his Humvee was blown up, and Henline was the only survivor, suffering burns over 40% of his body. During his extensive recovery, there were many down days, and he turned to humor as therapy. Now, he travels across the country lifting the spirits of others suffering from post-war trauma, giving hope that life is worth the struggle.

Henline has since teamed up with award-winning writer/director Nony Geffen to produce a documentary about his life, “Live Well Done.” Please join me today when I speak with Henline and Geffen about their upcoming film, the power of hope, resilience, and humor. #DeborahKobyltLIVE on all video and audio livestream platforms.
