Believing the Promise: Daily Devotions for Following Your Dreams
Heather Whitestone. Her name has become synonymous with incredible determination and unprecedented achievement. Profoundly deaf since she was eighteen months old, Whitestone strove to live a normal life, refusing to listen to the voices of discouragement that often confronted her. She ignored the doctor who said she wouldn't develop beyond third-grade abilities and those who said she would never dance ballet or speak. She did, however, follow the guidance of her own heart's dreams to triumph over her difficulties. Sustained by every success -- no matter how small, she ultimately became Miss America 1995. Through all her struggles, Whitestone became empowered by her conviction to seek God first in all her actions, and in so doing, she had faith in God's promise to, in turn, provide for her.
In "Believing The Promise," a moving collection of thought-provoking wisdom, Whitestone shares insight into her personal sources of strength through devotional readings that inspire perseverance, courage, and faith. Beginning with a quote from Scripture, each of the more than one hundred devotions shows how we can all move mountains if we just stay true to our dreams.
