In this positive and practical memoir, John Foppe learns how to not only survive amidst insurmountable odds, but live a full life and inspire others to do the same.
Born without arms, John has faced unique obstacles to living a normal life. But what he's always had is an indomitable faith―a faith that not only gives him the will to survive, but also the will to thrive. With a foreword by Zig Ziglar, John asks the reader hard questions and applies his own experiences as well as the unique insights he's developed. As a trained counselor and motivational speaker, John advises us how to:
- confidently confront adversity
- discover our own dynamic potential
- achieve accomplishment and fulfillment.
As John says, even when faced with seemingly insurmountable odds, "All things are within reach."
