Heather Whitestone. Her name has become synonymous with incredible determination and unprecedented achievement. In Listening with My Heart, Heather tells her own story and the stories of others who have inspired her, proving that with hard work, perseverance, and faith, each of us can move mountains. Profoundly deaf since she was eighteen months old, Heather strove to live a normal life, and refused to listen to the voices of discouragement that many of us so often hear, no matter what problems confront us. She wouldn't listen to the doctor who said she wouldn't develop beyond third-grade abilities, or to those who said she would never dance ballet, or even speak. She did, however, hear the encouraging spirit of her family and followed the guidance of her own heart's dreams. Struggling through her difficulties, she was sustained by every success--no matter how small--and ultimately became Miss America 1995. Though she is disabled, her incredible gifts have inspired many throughout the world, and in Listening with My Heart she at last shares her life-changing wisdom.

I think this was a good book. It was a good personal story but the author made many references to Deaf people and thier language that are not true. She may be medically deaf but is not a true Deaf person
Heather Whitestone talks about overcoming her deafness to succeed. Being deaf since eighteen months old didn't stop her from reaching her goals of college education and becoming Miss America. She writes the ups and down as being Miss America despite exhaustion and lack of privacy. She also writes about her faith in God who helped her.
this book is awesome. it was a true inspiration to me. My best friend at the time, who was himself deaf, though this would be a great book for me considering my interest in the deaf. i decided to read and i must say i read the book non stop for 2 days. the book is a must for all those who feel like that can do it. this bbook show as long as you belive in yourself you can accomplish anyhitng
