Running a 26.2 mile marathon is grueling, but imagine running it in a fog. Not so much thick as the clichéd split pea soup, but more like an unclarified broth. Consider running in a world with no distinct edges, no specific definition of where something begins or ends, without disparate colors, where magnification helps slightly, but not in a portable way that you can take on a run.The legally blind author, Rhonda Copeland, also known as “Vision Runner†has had to discontinue many of the normal day-to-day activities that others take for granted like driving, riding her bike and photography. The one thing she refused to give up though was her passion for running - so she simply chose not to.Whether you’re a runner or not, this book will inspire you to move beyond the limiting beliefs that hold you back and keep you from accomplishing everything your heart desires. If you have obstacles that you’d like to overcome in your life, get it and read it today!

The Reasons I Run is a can-do story which offers the reader a rare glimpse inside the mind of a competitive runner. Dennis Gravitt was an average athlete whose internal drive compelled him to press the boundaries of his physical limitations. As the story unfolds, Dennis transforms himself from a middle-of-the-pack athlete into a competitive runner. He would eventually enjoy a career spanning 28 years. This is a memoir which chronicles his journey, both inner and outer, with all of its ups and downs—the victories and the disappointments. Dennis also shares the lessons learned, candidly examines some of running’s modern paradigms, and challenges others to step beyond the constraints of their own comfort zones.

True beauty is not about how you look… but how you live. Women are constantly bombarded with the lie that how we look is far more important than who we are. It’s time for a clarion call back to the truth. Journey with gifted storyteller Kim Meeder as she encourages women to see that true value is defined by our Creator and that our worth has a purpose of eternal proportions. Real beauty isn’t a look, it’s an action. It can be found by making one crucial, life-defining choice—to lay down personal ambitions and selfish desires, pick up your sword of encouragement, and fight for those who are losing their battle for hope. As you do, fierce beauty is revealed—along with lasting value, fulfillment, and joy. In Fierce Beauty, Kim shares inspiring true stories from her own life of adventure, love, and loss—including her parents’ shocking death when she was nine years old and her struggles with self acceptance, knowing God, and standing for Him. Through it all, you’ll discover life lessons about trust, transformation, surrender, forgiveness, and genuine purpose. Ultimately, life comes down to one question: Will you serve yourself or your King? Includes discussion guide for individuals or groups. “You were not created to be a princess of entitlement but a warrior, fighting to bring love and hope to the world.” – Kim Meeder
