We make that purpose."
-- Marshall Stewart Ball
Marshall Ball believes the key to happiness lies in opening our hearts to good God. This simple but profound message comes from a singularly extraordinary messenger: Fourteen-year-old Marshall has spent his life confined to a wheelchair. He cannot speak, write, or walk, and he does not have the strength to use a computer without assistance. Yet he has transcended the limits of his body by communicating through a painstaking transcription process -- a process that since childhood has been his means of sharing his amazingly sophisticated and perceptive expressions on the topics of God, love, kindness, and freedom. These powerful writings have not only astonished and moved those closest to Marshall, but touched millions in his bestseller, Kiss of God.
In this powerful new collection of his poems, letters, and affirmations, Marshall also includes answers to questions people have asked him. With startling beauty and disarming simplicity, he teaches us to appreciate our roles in life, no matter how difficult they may be, and to love and respect knowledge, others, and God. Marshall's message of hope -- that true joy comes from accepting God's love -- is a gift to savor and share with our loved ones time and time again.
