Glen House, MD, was a typical twenty-year-old, college student when he suffered a skiing accident that paralyzed him. But he never pitied himself, he was never angry and he never wavered in his faith. Instead, he pushed forward-with often nothing but sheer determination to sustain and motivate him-and went on to become a doctor, inventor, businessman, husband and father who now daily touches the lives of others facing physical difficulties. This is not a story of his disability; this is a story of Glen's success-ability.
Glen House may sit much of the day in a wheelchair, but he does not sit still. He's a bundle of energy, helping other people navigate their new world following life-changing injury. The key influences that Glen credits for his own journey are "faith, family, and friends." I believe you will be inspired by Glen's story, as powerfully told by his devoted sister, Shelly Templin.

When you get the call from an ER telling you that your 24-year-old daughter is barely alive after a ski accident, you hope and pray that the right people will be put in your path. Dr. House was that person for us. His firsthand knowledge, compassion, and experience told us we were in great hands. Four months later, our daughter walked out of the hospital on her own.

This book is a definite must-read. The author tells the true story of how her brother overcame a disability resulting from a skiing accident. His faith in God and determination allowed his disability to become his “success ability”, as the author says. As a person living with a disability, I found the story to be an encouragement to me. Whether you are disabled or not, this book will light a fire under you. You will find it difficult to lay it down once you start reading.
I have already read this book and plan to buy additional books for family members. Excellent writing and message of faith, family and friendship. A truly uplifting story.
