I knew I wanted to do an episode about HOPE, heading into the new year. On December 8th we lost our friend Scott Smith and quickly I knew his words were all I needed to share.

This episode is an inspired replay. In memory of our dear friend Scott Smith, I added a new intro, a message from Jamie and then share my original chat with Scott and Jamie Smith. Originally released in 2021, as they were fighting Scott's ALS, Scott and Jamie Smith shared their hearts to encourage others. Silver Linings, Courage Under Fire, Nothing to Lose and Riding On Hope are just a few of the topics Scott Smith wrote about in his intimate blog, Flex On ALS. He documented his personal experience by sharing his fears, regrets and what he wanted us to realize before it's too late. Scott was a personal trainer, fitness advocate and young father of two daughters Iris, 3 and Hope, 1. Scott and Jamie shared openly about life with a terminal illness, a young family and all that came with that. Scott's writings on flexonals.com were intended to tell the truth about one man’s journey as he walks through the fire, but trust me they will inspire you as well. Thank you for listening and sharing with a friend as we remember Scott Smith.

Hugs, Lorri
