“Soul Models” by Elizabeth Bryan and Angela Daffron took my breath away. Each story touched my heart with the struggle and then the realization that they could do something to change their circumstances. That they catastrophic events they went through didn’t have to stop them from accomplishing their goals. Temple Grandin is a wonderful example of this. Her contribution to this book illustrated what being a “Soul Model” is. There are several more in this book from all types of people with all sorts of issues that decided to make the world a better place for everyone.
I suggest that you get this book, read the stories and be inspired. I know I was.
