Cecil Murphey writer…speaker…teacher…survivor


I'm a hugger. When I meet people, I like to wrap my arms around them. I want them to feel worthy and loved. I write to hug people with words of encouragement and challenge. I yearn for them to appreciate themselves and to realize that God created each of us to love and to be loved.—Cecil Murphey
