Deborah Weed has the unique ability of transforming the lives of those around her! She is warm, compassionate, and possesses the unique ability to connect with others in such a way that all psychological and emotional barriers are cleared from ones path. Among her many gifts: creativity, intelligence, innocence and wisdom, and a level of empathic atunement that makes one feel fully embraced by her love and presence. I am so fortunate to know her, and am thrilled to know she will have the opportunity to further express these gifts and continue to inspire others.

I am so thrilled to call Deborah a friend. We met by chance and became fast friends. I was going through a rough patch in life and Deborah became like my earth angel... picked perfectly for me by God. Her ability to help me sort through some very tough stuff happened because she was a safe place for me to share my secrets. She's clearly here to be a light to the world. Her words were always timely and sprinkled with love. If you ever get to know Deborah as I have, you will experience the highest form of wisdom, compassion, honesty and love from one incredible being and one phenomenal soul.

It was such a pleasure to have met you. You are such a sweet person. I had been looking so forward to the performance of The Luckiest Penny! I was also happy to be able to share it with my children and my husband. We had read the book prior to the performance and we were so happy to see it done live. The kids were even singing the song PEHEW! PEHEW! Whatta ya gonna do? On Monday after the show. I love the message of The Luckiest Penny and think that having it done live is a wonderful way to relay that message.

It was a joy hearing the words and music of The Luckiest Penny come to life at the New York Occupational Therapy Association Conference. The dialog between the two pennies was impeccable, and I did indeed have tears in my eyes by the end. The story line can speak to, and is inspiring for all ages. Now is a wonderful time to spread the joy of this play.
 ~ Melissa M. Caputo

I took my two daughters to see The Luckiest Penny musical, and they both enjoyed it immensely. The story taught them that it is okay to be different, and that being different is not necessarily a bad thing. My younger daughter stutters and sometimes she is teased at school. This story has made her open up about the self-esteem issues she has been experiencing. Once again, thank you for this experience.
 ~ Patsy Doris

After seeing The Luckiest Penny, I realized how simple , yet, how creative it was. Both the story and musical hold such a strong moral concept that should be instilled in all of us.
 ~ David Hering

One word, INSPIRATIONAL! When I first met you, it felt like I had known you for a few years. You brought me in like I was your best friend. The Luckiest Penny taught me that self-worth comes from the inside, that the adventures that you take is what creates your self-worth. The play was just as inspirational as you. I believe that this play needs to be shown everywhere possible, to every one of all backgrounds and ages. Everyone is worth something, and everyone is capable of believing that they are indeed a lucky penny!

I have two boys, one 22 and one 19 and although they are brothers, they are nothing alike. The older one likes to "experience life rather than "live" it like the younger one does. As the oldest child myself, I can totally relate to my older son, and of course, as a mother, I have wanted to make his journey a little bit smoother. He has chosen the rockier route! Lately, I have wanted to communicate to him, in a non-threatening way, how much I love and appreciate him, and let him know how special I think he is. During the book signing, I could feel all the love and compassion you have for life and others, and I could feel all the love well up in me that I have for my son. Hence, the inability to speak, the tears... so, thanks for sharing that moment with me and thank you for the beautiful message you wrote to my son.

Seeing the play, The Luckiest Penny musical, made me feel warm inside. I was touched by Henry, who knew who he was and what he was "worth." What a positive message that was sent about the power of unconditional love. As a penny, he was so valued for his true self. I had tears in my eyes when Henry was embraced by someone who saw his inner beauty.
 ~ Bari Goroway

Thank you for writing such a heartfelt book and for helping turn it into an amazing musical for all to enjoy. I purchased a copy of your book for my niece and nephew and they love it. It was such a joy watching all the smiles on the faces of the audience and singing the songs from the plat all week long. I would love to help out on a campaign keeping the penny in circulation throughout our country.
