Most people know that Laura Ingalls Wilder wrote Little House on the Prairie and many other delightful books depicting life at the turn of the 19th Century. But how many are aware that she didn?t begin writing her first book until she was 65 years old? Or that Babe Ruth didn?t learn to play baseball until he was sent to a reform school for delinquent youth where he was taught to swing a bat? Or that it took Thomas Edison more than 11,000 failed attempts before his first light bulb worked?
Through these extraordinary behind-the-scenes tales, told in a style reminiscent of Paul Harvey?s ?The Rest of the Story,? graduates will be inspired to face the future with a renewed sense of faith and courage.
Reach for Your Dreams is more than just a book of true stories?it is a living testament to the staggering power of passion and persistence when ordinary people resolve to follow extraordinary dreams.
