A to Z: 26 True Heroes in One Place


Wow. Was that an amazing challenge or what? I had such a blast visiting everyone's blogs and learning so many amazing things. It was also a wonderful experience sharing my true life heroes with everyone--finding inspiration, encouragement, and something to aspire for. Thank you to everyone who shared your heroes with me.

If you missed it, you can read about it all here:


I've been thinking about compiling these into an inspirational book. What do you say? Yes, no? 

Did you follow along for the challenge? Did you have a favorite hero post?
