Ed Note: Have you had to overcome obstacles in your life? Author Lynne Klippel share tales of tragedy and redemption in her new book Overcomers, Inc: True Stories of Hope, Courage and Inspiration.
What inspired you to be a contributing author in Overcomers, Inc.?
The idea for Overcomers, Inc. came to me in a dark time. My mother, father and brother all had cancer. Everyone was worried and fearful. I wished I had a positive, uplifting book to send my brother to read during his chemotherapy treatments. Since I coach aspiring authors, I knew lots of people who had a great story to tell. So, I put out a call for authors who wanted to participate in a very special book project and within about a month, the Overcomers project began.
Why is the topic of Overcoming important to you?
I jokingly say that I have a PhD from the school of hard knocks. I’ve had some very hard times in my life and been blessed greatly. My faith, friends, and family always supported me, even when I was so broke I was selling plasma to pay my bills after leaving an abusive spouse. I’ve seen, in my life and in others, that we are never alone. We can always find the courage to go on and overcome a tragedy or problem. Sometimes we just need a reminder of how strong we really are. Overcomers, Inc gives you that reminder in every story.Why are you specially qualified to write about this topic?
In my personal life and my career, I’ve seen the courage of the ordinary person who overcomes an illness, a job loss, a life-altering injury, or a terrible mistake. There are heroes around each of us, in every community. These unsung heroes have inspiring stories that make you feel stronger and braver. Each Overcomers Inc author is a hero to me, and will be hero to everyone who reads the book.
What makes you proud about your involvement with Overcomers, Inc.?
