Encouragement: Lizzie Velasquez

Hello Again Readers~

A few days ago, I had the privilege of watching A Brave Heart: The Lizzie Velasquez Story on Lifetime. This documentary tells the remarkable story of how she lives with an undiagnosed disorder and coped with bullying at a young age. This disorder, diagnosed within the documentary, causes Lizzie to not gain weight and have cardiac issues. Some people may feel uncomfortable seeing her at first; but over time, they forget her disability and listen to the heart her message.

For more on her remarkable journey: please see the following resources:

Meet HK- How a Unlikely FriendshipTransformed 2 Lives

Welcome Back Readers,

While listening to  Delilah on IHeartRadio one evening, she introduced her book  of the month club selection. This month, she chose The  Awakening of  HK Derryberry: My Unlikely Friendship with the Boy Who  Remembers Everything. This book tells the inspiring true story of how one chance meeting transforms two lives for the better. You see, HK was born with cerebral palsy and  several  other disabilities;  in his young life, he had encountered numerous  difficulties from not knowing  how to interact in social situations to  dealing with  physical problems

HK  is now 26-year-old  and a wonderful young man. It has been eye-opening learning about his  transformation due to  Mr.  Bradford. On the flip side, I'm sure Mr. Bradford is more open to God's leading in his life.

For more information on this  book or their  amazing friendship, please  go to:

Encouragement: Jen Bricker actively lives out her faith

Welcome Back Readers~

Being adopted and disabled, many could look at Jen Bricker and say she has every right to view her life with a "glass half empty" perspective; she, on the other hand, does not feel that way at all. Born with no legs and growing up in a Christian family, Jen believes everything happens for a reason and that the circumstances of her life have made her into the person she is today. In her book Everything Is Possible, she explores the inspiring events leading up to her adoption and the unexpected revelation of having a gymnastic superstar for a sister as just some of the monumental events responsible for developing a active and moving faith in God.

For more information on Jen, please see the following links:
