Gathering Courage: A Life-Changing Journey Through Adoption, Adversity, and a Reading Disability

11 Dec , 2016  

Why do some people find success despite hardships and others sink into a pit of despair?

Gathering Courage: A Life-Changing Journey through Adoption, Adversity, and a Reading Disability by T.A. “Terry” McMullin is the author’s incredible, award-winning memoir meant to inspire hope and encouragement to those who are going through tough times.

Terry dusted off the hurt from abandonment, rejection by her adoptive parents, struggles with a reading disability, shock from foster home placement, and a life-altering accident. Her faith and tenacity along with the internal desire to overcome is thought provoking as Terry worked her way through college, Texas A&M University. Terry’s life transformed from a broken-hearted child who could barely make out words in elementary school to a distinguished educator and writer who encourages young people to work hard and to achieve their greatest aspirations.

Terry proves that we are not defined by our hurts and wounds but it is what we become after the scars heal that counts.
Any reader who loves a true story with a Christian focus should definitely read this book.
