Even the most disappointing of starts leads to a good future. This was the case of Marala Scott. Her story didn't have the best of beginnings, but now she uses that painful start to help others learn how to forgive, accept challenges, and adapt to changes in life.
Before becoming a multi award-winning author, Marala had a childhood filled with abuse. Her memories of abuse began as early as five years old. She and her family were living in a tenement apartment in upstate New York at that time. Marala vividly remembers her father coming home from work then have heated arguments with her mother that included pushing and shoving.

Everyone has high hopes of becoming someone important, famous, celebrated and admired. Realizing those hopes and dreams, however, isn’t as simple and quick as it seems. With a lot of challenges and risks along the way, there’s a huge possibility that a person would simply give up. To escape the heartaches and disappointment, anyone would choose to let go of their dreams of running for governor in California or flying to space.
Perhaps, all that’s missing is motivation. Why not take inspiration from the words of John Leslie Brown?
John Leslie Brown is the son of Les Brown, another motivational speaker known the world over and has an Emmy award attached to his name.

Today's reading will be from Psalm 1
Psalm 1 King James Version (KJV)
1 Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.
