Be the Miracle: 50 Lessons for Making the Impossible
We all pass miracle workers every day. They’re disguised as teachers, cab drivers, hairdressers, nurses, secretaries, neighbors and the like. Be the Miracle is a collection of stories and essays to inspire people to be the miracle right here, right now.
It’s easy to feel overwhelmed by all the problems in the world. We often hear, “Why doesn’t someone do something about this?” Or say, “It’ll take a miracle to fix that.”
We want someone else to act, but miracles aren’t just what others do. They’re what each of us can do. They’re what happen when you decide to Start where you are. Get busy on the possible. Magnify the Good. Carry as you climb.
I hope you continue to enjoy my first book, New York Times bestseller God Never Blinks: 50 Lessons for Life's Little Detours. It’s now in paperback and in 20 countries. You can also find me on Twitter and Facebook.
Thanks for all your support, and wherever you go, be the miracle.

When I was diagnosed with cancer 16 years ago, I was only 41, my daughter was only 19 and my marriage was only two years old.
The day I left the doctor’s office and the receptionist said, “I’ll pray for you,” I sat in the car and wept. I looked in the rearview mirror and pictured myself bald. I looked at the future and saw a hole in it. My husband a widow. My daughter with no mom to fluff her wedding dress.
How long would I live?
Long enough for another wedding anniversary? Long enough to see my new stepsons finish high school? Long enough to see my daughter get married?
Cancer makes you think about all that you will miss if it wins.
