At age 17, Ron Heagy was handsome, robust, and a star athlete in high school football and wrestling. Then a dive at the beach changed his life forever, making him a quadriplegic. Now in his 30s, Ron is an accomplished painter who has earned his masters degree and developed a ministry of counseling other disabled people. He also travels and speaks nationwide, sharing his incredible positive attitude. Many of these speaking engagements are high school assemblies, where Ron holds kids spellbound between laughter and tears as he shares his story and what he has learned. Not only is Life Is an Attitude a fascinating story, it also tells of our need for a meaningful, personal encounter with the sovereignty of God.
