Lonnie E. Shipe, M.A.   My Press Releases

“With tremendous burdens often come enormous gifts. The trick is to identify the gifts, and glory in them.”-Dr. Maya Shetreat-Klein

“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
-Eleanor Roosevelt
 
Tie My Shoes is a story, an autobiography, soon to be published about Lonnie E. Shipe, my life.  Born premature with cerebral palsy, living and functioning in a normal society while attending a public school system. Battling the struggles with leg braces, crutches and a “funny voice” and trying to be “normal” when my body, was far from normal.

 Some educators and medical doctors had little hope of me succeeding through school. As one medical doctor stated, when I was in the ninth grade, “This will be Lonnie's last year of school, C. P.'ers only go to the ninth grade.”

 

But with my dreams, hope, faith in God and the attitude my mother gave me in my childhood, “Can't never did anything, try and try again,” And working hard against the odds of physical barriers, the educational system a for nearly a decade, to earn my Masters Degree in Counseling Education with a post Graduate School Internship.

The struggles of dating, sexuality, self-worth, depression, suicidal thoughts, to a wonderful marriage, a beautiful daughter and blessed with two healthy grandsons. All of this because my mother kept repeating, “try and try again.

Then adding to this struggle, to just belong” I fell off my crutches and broke my neck. Life seemed to be ten times more difficult, in a millisecond.

 With my desire and passion to help inspire someone, sometime, somewhere and somehow, hopefully my writing will do so.  Hopefully, with my story, "Tie My Shoes." We can help change the world together one person at a time.  This is my personal dream to share my story and this is extremely exciting.

 
Let us be passionate for others.
 
 Have A Great Blessed Day!
