Portland, OR (PRWEB) January 26, 2012
His brother died at a very young age; his father died just a few years later. His family struggled financially for years because his father had no insurance. He had to move and live in a motel near his new high school and had to buy meals at the local diner because his mother was hundreds of miles away. His mother suddenly decided to move him, at age fifteen, to Germany, where he couldn’t meet the basic requirements needed to attend school at his grade level. Then, he decided to come back to America on his own accord, at age sixteen, and make his way with no family to support him. What would be his chances of making it on his own, let alone achieving success? Author Gary F. Heuer shares his true story of keeping A Determined Spirit in the pages of his newly published inspiring memoir.
This book is a brief glimpse into the author’s childhood. Fortunately, he did survive despite what happened to him and his family. He joined the army and overcame his family’s and life’s challenges. This all happened because his family never prepared for the contingencies of life. There was no insurance, no savings, and no planning. With this realization, he decided to become a financial advisor with one of the largest Christian-based insurance companies in America.
His story of overcoming life’s obstacles and achieving success is one of courage, stamina, and perseverance. His autobiography is an in-depth look at what happens to a family when tragedy strikes, not once or twice, but multiple times. His heartbreaking story of endurance and steadfastness is one that can inspire and motivate any reader to stay the course and work through their issues. His story shows what a determined spirit can accomplish, if the person never gives up.
