Personal Heroes & History Makers

CT Studd:  “Some want to live within the sound of church or chapel bell; I want to run a rescue shop within a yard of hell.”

Mother Teresa: “Do not think that love, in order to be genuine, has to be extraordinary. What we need is to love without getting tired.”

Winston Churchill:  “History will be good to me, for I intend to write it.” “If you’re going through hell, keep going.”

Eleanor Roosevelt:  “It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.”

John Perkins: “The first requirement of being a disciple & to being an effective leader of Christ is you must be found faithful.”

I love quotes and these quotes come from folks who are some of my personal heroes.  These men and women still have multilevel influence and generational impact.  They have colorful pasts, dysfunctional families, are entirely human, and have world changing leadership legacies.  They are literal legends.

Who inspires you?  I want to outlive my life, don’t you?


Hey there fellow truth-teller, welcome to our community. I'm so glad you're here. I love to help people take their mask off and tell the truth, and I believe the world needs what you have to give. I write books and blogs, live in Harlem, New York, with my hubby, and two rambunctious boys.

  • I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100% certain. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
