Overview

They called his condition Phocomelia, probably the result of Thalidomide or some medication prescribed for his mother. Born with tiny scissored legs, only one arm, and that tiny stump, Jeff Steinberg spent his first years in a welfare center and then later in a Shriners' Hospital, where he learned to walk in braces, feed himself with a hook, and fight for survival.

Later he went to live in a home for the severely disabled, where he would have spent the rest of his life.

But God had other plans. The Master Artist was at work putting together the materials that He would use to create another masterpiece. Jeff Steinberg's story is about a masterpiece in progress - living proof of what a person can become when willing to be shaped by the hands of the Master Artist.

Someone once described Jeff as having "a face like B.J. Thomas and a voice like Neil Diamond." He now travels around the country, singing about what God has done with his life and encouraging others to be "the best YOU - you can be".

Masterpiece in Progresswas written for people who are giving up on themselves, thinking their situation is too hard, that they don't have enough to work with, that life has dealt them a bad hand. Jeff Steinberg's story will inspire anyone to see that their lives, too, can become something beautiful - a masterpiece in progress!

· Tough and tenacious, Jeff Steinberg is a survivor. Breaking through into a life for himself and his family, he left behind the crumbled walls of fear, ignorance, and pity. The journey, tough as it has been, is not over. Jeff Steinberg's masterpiece is still in progress. -Joni Eareckson Tada

· Jeff Steinberg teaches how to make it on grit, gumption, God, and an indomitable will to overcome severe physical limitations. - Zig Ziglar
