In 2016 I was medically discharged from the United States Army after an injury I sustained to my spine. Now, three years and three back surgeries later, I published my second book, Secrets from Strangers, to share my experiences with the world.
I wrote this book to share with you the perspective that saved my life. My world was turned upside down after my injury and this book shares the 18 life changing “secrets” that helped me find the strength to persevere.
My disability has slowed my life down significantly but it has allowed me to embrace a new perspective that led me to writing this book. If I was going to experience life at a slower pace that meant I could soak more of life in along the way.
I started conversations with people I otherwise would have never had and I began appreciating the smallest aspects of life that I had so often overlooked.
The unique perspective that I share in this book allowed me to realize that God gives us the strength we pray for but it doesn’t always come to us in the most obvious ways. Each chapter of this book relives a life changing encounter I’ve had with a complete stranger and each chapter shares a “secret” that I learned to get more out of life.
I guarantee this book will change the way you see the world. It will challenge you to change the way you think, to open yourself up to new experiences and to want more out of life.
