Welcome to MoodySpeaks! I will be celebrating 25 years in business in April 2013, and decided it would be great to do a blog about my journey. This blog will focus on my journey in life and how I started C.D. Moody Construction Company and reaching this 25-year milestone. I thought I would only talk about my 25 years in business. I realized I couldn’t tell the true story without sharing my journey of healing from childhood sexual abuse.

Should you decide to take the journey of reading my blog, you will learn about the events that have taken place in my life that molded me and the people that encouraged me. You will learn about the ups and downs of building this business. You will learn the struggles we faced and how our faith in God helped us persevere and gave us the strength to keep pushing to build our company to where we are today. Finally, you will learn why I feel it is important to give back and help others in life and expect nothing in return from those you help.

I hope after reading the entire blog, you will be inspired to go for your dreams, help others (and expect nothing in return), grow in your faith and know, regardless of the things we go through in life, everything will be great. With God leading my steps, I am just beginning to use the gifts He has blessed me with.

As the great poet, Langston Hughes, once said, “Life for me ain’t been no crystal stair,” so join me on this journey and find out what makes me tick and continue pushing through my fears.

C. David Moody, Jr. – President & CEO

  1. Impressive journey! Would love to connect about the days in Michigan. My father is also a Belizean. Peace and prosperity!

  2. Mr. Moody, I ready the article about you in the Atlanta Business Chronicles and it was like it was a message directed to us. How do I get my husband help for a very similar circumstance to yours. He is a business owner, a minority contractor, and a good person but plague by bad memories. When he shared with me recently (while we were attending a funeral back home in NY and visiting his old neighborhood) a lot of his behaviors can perhaps be explained. He refuses to get professional help however he is dissononnected from his family, does not spend time with us, retreats to the basement, is very angry and often times takes it out on his family. Thank you for sharing with us.

    1. First you can’t force it, he has to want it. I would recommend as his wife asking him to go to counseling with you to help you get better in dealing with his trauma and maybe if he goes, he will get help. Have him read the article and my blog and maybe that will help him want to start the journeying of healing. Love and prayer is key. Good luck and may God bless you all.

  3. What will it take for you to become my mentor. I am on the right path and would love the blue print map to walk in your shoes. My life story is almost like yours. I been building my construction company for 14 years now with no real education. My wife is now also in school for the same thing you wife went to school for. She has two years left to go in that direction. I been reaching out looking for a mentor for many years now and still doing things on my own learning from my own mistakes.

  4. How can you be reached? I read your story in the AJC and am very interested in the groups you’ve been volunteering with. At the same time, I’m not sure I’m as ready to go that public.

      1. Hello Mr. Moody. My name is Denise Hudson. Yesterday, based on a conversation that we were having, a friend mentioned your story in the AJC and gave me her copy to read. I am also a survivor and wanted to speak with you further. Will you be open to me sending my contact info to the e-mail that you provided?
