His birth mother made the difficult decision to hand him over to the state.
After 6 months, he was adopted by Joanne and Rudy (Sheptock) who created a home for unwanted children.
With that, Jon suddenly had 36 siblings.
With Arms Wide Open
We all face some form of adversity in our lives, but would being given up for adoption stop Jon? Well, there’s more to the story, much more.
- He started singing at the age of 3.
- He has a tremendous faith in God, a lovely wife and three beautiful daughters.
- He released two CD’s of which he co wrote much of the material.
- He has performed live across the country.
Oh, and did I mention that Jon was born without arms?
Even though Jon has no arms he has touched more people than most of us. Because his heart and his courage cannot be contained. He found his voice and hasn’t stopped since.
For more information about Jon please visit his website, but keep in mind that this message is not about Jon, it’s about you.
Sing, Sing, Sing
It’s obvious that Jon has what most consider a handicap, the question is, do you have one? If you do, is there a way that you can overcome it? Helen Keller and Bill Porter did, so why couldn’t you?
If you don’t have a handicap, then what are you waiting for?
Have you found your voice? Have you acted on it? If you don’t have anything holding you back other than yourself, then you might be making excuses. Excuses aren’t very fulfilling and deep down in your heart and soul, even if others believe your excuses (which they usually don’t) do you actually believe them?
People make excuses because they aren’t happy or fulfilled and don’t want to take responsibility for where they are or what they’ve become. Don’t complain and remain, begin and win!
Fly Like an Eagle
This may seem like a harsh reality check, but this is a check that you must cash.
I want you to feel inspired. You are born with a purpose, you’re meant to soar and to dream big. You have it in you to change “impossible” to “I’m possible” so go for it.
I’ll let John have the last word on this one, enjoy!
