“Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the whole staircase. “Martin Luther King Jr
Hosts Maria Wong and Brigitte Jia interview award winning author, Kathleen Rooney about her book Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk based on the true-life story of one of the most talented and successful ad women for R.H. Macy’s in the 1930s, Margaret Fishback. It took an immense amount of faith in herself and in humanity to be the plucky, outspoken and curious woman she was as she walked her way through New York.
Maria and Brigitte also read Dani Wong’s touching and emotional chapter, The Gift of Faith, from Cynthia Brian’s book, Be the Star You Are!® for Teens. It is critical to have faith in oneself. When we stay positive, everything works out in time. Faith takes courage and determination to make the impossible possible. In life, faith helps us overcome the biggest obstacles. The sun is going to shine tomorrow.
