by Jenny Durr
This book has something for everyone. The author shows that even with a disability, people are multifaceted and desire to contribute, not only to their world but to the world as a whole. The author wishes to challenge any preconceived notions about disability and offers a new perspective. She wishes the reader to realize that each of us struggles with a "disability" of one kind or another, so don't feel sad for or pity a person with a physical disability. This book presents powerful writing that will enlighten and stay with the reader.
The author's passion is to share how Jesus Christ helps her cope and gives her life more meaning. The book's range of emotion reminds us that we are all human and need each other. The author's greatest desire is to show, through humor, love, and God's grace, that we can all give something to each other.
