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

“Wise men put their trust in ideas and not in circumstances.” Ralph Waldo Emerson

Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me... Anything can happen, child. Anything can be.”  Shel Silverstein
 
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              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.

 

  Please click on the following link to order my autobiography for yourself or as a gift to someone else:

      (A future purchasing link will be given once the book is published.  In the meantime please message me or look for my pre-orders on my Facebook page on my book posts.)        

Please Look Into This

 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!
