Summary

Sometimes all you need to turn hope into action is to write your promises down and say them out loud-to make a promise to no one but yourself. This book is about many things-faith, courage, creativity, determination-but above all it's about the promises we make to ourselves about the future. These stories will inspire you to believe in yourself and to believe in the power that each and every one of us has to shape our lives through the power of "I Will."
