Never Give Up!
Relentless Determination to Overcome Life's ChallengesBook - 2008
When it comes to explaining the importance of never giving up, Joyce Meyer is probably better equipped than anyone. If anyone knows how to hold on to a dream and realize it, it's her. She overcame an abused childhood, a bad early marriage and extremely limited opportunities to become one of the most popular author/speakers in the world. Joyce Meyer Ministries was the first mega- ministry in America to be headed by a woman, and it's one of the largest in the world. Packed with examples of other people who pursued their goals relentlessly, this book profiles nearly fifty individuals who prevailed against all odds. From the builder of the Brooklyn Bridge to the chemists who invented Post-It notes, we meet people like Bessie Coleman, an African-American female pilot who had to go all the way to Paris in order to get into flight school. But fly she did, becoming the first woman in America to earn her pilot's license in 1920. Looking for stories of real people who overcame the odds through perseverance?̃ look no farther. --From publisher description.
