We sat down with Christian singer songwriter Kerrie Roberts a few nights ago and had the honor of sharing some of our time with this amazing artist.
Today she released her new single Come Back to Life and we actually dedicated part of our conversation to this beautiful, touching song. Also, keep reading because we are launching a new QuackNTest today!
We started with our already famous Swan Revealed questions:
We then moved on to talking about What Are You Afraid Of? and Come Back to Life, and we addressed the issue of suicide prevention and how important it is to keep talking about it and working towards stopping it.
And in the last part of our chat, Kerrie confessed what has been the “Ugly Duckling story” behind her life story, telling us which have been the obstacles she’s faced and overcome in her career, as well as answering some of your questions!

A few days ago, our friends from Once Upon a Fan got in touch with us, for something we weren’t quite expecting.
As I was reading the e-mail, the smile on my face grew bigger, because it restates that we are slowly but steadily doing good things for each other.
In case you are not familiar with it, Once Upon a Fan is the number one fansite about the ABC TV show Once Upon a Time, and they are currently the biggest, most important webpage about it, with interviews from some of the cast and crew, interesting essays about the origins of the characters, as well as news about upcoming episodes.
After carrying out some great initiatives, like two quite successful charity fundraisers, plus a trip to the San Diego Comic Con to interview the cast, they decided to start a new series of interviews: a chat with people who have been inspired by the show to do good things for others.
We were the lucky ones to be chosen first and we couldn’t be more excited. Here is one of the questions from the interview:
What inspired the Ugly Ducklings group?
Marie: Ugly Ducklings Inc was born a few weeks after Jennifer Morrison decided that the Emma Swan fans should be called The Ugly Ducklings. I was waiting for her to tell us in order to start working on the logo that might represent us. After some thinking and designing, I came up with the logo that we then printed on t-shirts, and sent one to Jennifer. We haven’t heard back from her in that respect.
After we came up with this, we decided to move on into creating a website, that could become a place where people could feel like they belong, a place where they felt empowered, and comfortable with their true self, without prejudices or misjudgements.
Erin: It was really important to me that the Ugly Ducklings be about more than just Once Upon a Time, because life is about more than just Once Upon a Time and life is really hard for some people; everyone goes through stuff and it is always easier when you have a friend and an understanding of your identity. I’m really glad we’ve also gotten a chance to get involved with a non-profit, as Ugly Ducklings, called Mental Fitness Inc (formerly NORMAL in Schools) – this organization is incredible and their founder/CEO has been so inspiring to us as well.

We want to thank Once Upon a Fan for the incredible opportunity. We hope to keep working hard to doing great things.
Earlier this week, Marie & I had the chance to interview Vasavi Kumar… educated and certificate Life Coach who co-authored a best-selling book and has her own television segment. We were so excited for the chance to talk to Vasavi about confidence. Check out the interview and be sure to connect with Vasavi through her website vasavikumar.com
