Item description for Teddy-Finding Life In A World Of Destruction by Teddy Wayne Smith...
Overview From birth, author Teddy Wayne Smith has been faced with extraordinary challenges. Born with Anterior Horn Cell Disease, a form of muscular dystrophy, he has spent his life in a wheelchair. Growing up in a rural Kentucky community, his "otherness" often made him the target of ridicule for other children. Despite his abject loneliness, Teddy recognized at a young age that his belief in God could give him the guidance he needed to find comfort and purpose in his life. But that road to happiness would not be an easy one. His despair of ever being accepted by others would bring about setbacks and crises of faith until a failed suicide attempt finally positioned him on the path of redemption. Teddy: Finding Life in a World of Destruction is a poignantly honest memoir that bravely reveals Teddy's search for self-worth and a Christian mission. He describes how he endured the taunts and rejection of some, even as he learned to accept friendship and love from others, until he at last found the congregation that he could call home. Teddy's candid narrative courageously shares a story of self-realization that will serve as inspiration for anyone who feels lost and alone-a story that offers a doorway to belonging.

Are you depressed, worried, feel alone? Have you lost a friend or just thought you never belonged anywhere. The author of this book has been through it all. Teddy Smith was born with Anterior Horn Cell Disease which has left him bound to a wheel-chair. He was born and raised in Eastern Kentucky and all through school he was teased by others for his disability. Finally Teddy tried to end it all when things got worse and when his final suicide attempt failed then Teddy turned to God for the answer. Read Teddy's story of everything he went trought and still faces today. The most amazing thing is Teddy is only 22. WOW. Get it to read when ever you feel down.
