Author Jewel Cordes tells how she overcame obstacles and achieved her dreams.

Jewel Cordes' life was a journey that took her from poverty to success. In her heartfelt testimony, The Story of Jewel (paperback, 978-1-60477-513-6), she shares with her readers how she met and dealt with many common problems everyone faces, as well as how her eager determination helped her to reach and maintain many goals in life. As the story unfolds, readers will be inspired by her life and will find new faith in themselves and in God.

Cordes' first memories were of the Great Depression era. This limited her ability to receive the education she so eagerly desired. This book tells how she eventually overcame this obstacle and gained a college education. With a strong belief that no one should let their age or circumstances hinder them from achieving their dreams and goals, she began penning this book to encourage others to do the same.

Says Cordes, "I hope my readers will think, 'If she can do it, so can I!' I want my readers to take away a new confidence in themselves. The reason why is because I have tried to present life in its reality, and I showed my reaction as an example. Hopefully this book will be an inspiration to all who read it."
