Courage is not the absence of fear,
but rather the judgment that something
else is more important than fear.
Ambrose Redmoon

The new books listed below were written by individuals who have faced uncommon challenges and have found a path to meaningful life. These individuals aren’t superhuman. They simply refused to stay mired in despair. With much support from family, friends, and medical professionals they have crafted lives that help all to see that a perfect body is not required to live well.
