    This is an inspiring tale of strenghth and courage under unimaginable challenge. On the surface this is a story of stuggle and survival. To me beneth the story of tremedous strenghth and courage is a tale of life and relationships.It is obvious to any reader that Sarah Krenk's character is built from a solid foundation of family, friends, and faith. While most of us can't related to her personal battles with her TBI, we can all recognize the unwaviering strenghth that comes from good character and faith. Sarah states her reason telling her story is to aid other people with simular disabilitating injurys. This story does much more than that! It shows us how petty our problems are regardless of how bad we think we have it in life and that with the help of family and friends (great life partners), we will overcome the greatest challanges. I too believe we are dealt only with things we can handle...with a little help. Job wll done!! Keep up the good work.

    Very quick read. This is an eye-opening, inspiring story. Sarah gives a vivid account of her struggles with a life-changing event, including honest observations about how to be there for your friends when tragedy strikes. Her tale made me think about how I treat others - and will treat others - when there are hurdles to cross. She's a brave woman and has my respect.

    To have the strength to share her life’s journey with the world has to have been a very difficult decision. This is a trip no one would want to take but Sarah’s resolve to make the most of her new life shows us that with love, support and raw determination the human spirit can and will prevail. Thank you Sarah. Scott Huber
