Carla Royal – I’m currently reading the New York Times bestselling book, Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance by Angela Duckworth. She talks about how much more important determination, perseverance, and passion are for success than talent (which is so overrated in our current culture). Teri Darnell’s very personal book, Left-Right-Left, demonstrates Duckworth’s point brilliantly. Real life grit, determination, and passion. I was blown away by Darnell’s grit and heart in the midst of harrowing circumstances that would have broken many of us. Darnell did the work, day after day, year after year. It appears that her passion was to emerge whole and to tell her story so that everyone knows, regardless of what they’ve been through, that they, too, can create a fulfilling life. If you wish to be inspired and motivated, read Darnell’s book. Her generous and loving nature coupled with her steel core of grit and bountiful artistic talent shines throughout this book. I am a fan! Billy Howard – A deeply lived and deftly told American story. Some of our most iconic American heroes are those who, given little, achieve much. Their stories are the stories of hope and future that have inspired readers since Huck Finn and Jim took off on a raft, leaving abuse behind as they find adventure and their own strength. A fitting comparison as Darnell escapes her own past in search of her own destiny. Her chronicle of that journey offers lessons for us all in our own quests to be true to our own beliefs in a world that tries to break the non-conformist spirit. E. Harmer – So powerful! I cannot say enough good things about this book. It’s moving, encouraging, tear jerking, but most importantly, inspiring. Everyone should be gifted with the chance to read it. Thank you for sharing your touching story. I have more grit just from reading it! Dale Niles – Inspirational! The unbeatable spirit and drive of Darnell would inspire anyone! She worked hard to beat all odds to achieve her dreams with all that was stacked against her. She is a true hero! This would be encouragement for anyone who thinks they can’t reach a goal. Thank you for sharing your story!
