Once in a while, someone reaches out to me, and I am startled by their heart-felt message. Tobey took time out of her busy life to touch my heart with this testimonial about how my first book and years of courage research had touched and motivated her life:
“I was introduced to Sandra Ford Walston, The Courage Expert, from a friend who had heard her keynote ‘Courage—An Inside Job!’ in Orlando, Florida at a Delta Kappa Gamma Society International Convention. By introduced I mean, a friend encouraged me to purchase and read her first award-winning book COURAGE: The Heart and Spirit of Every Woman/Reclaiming the Forgotten Virtue. Being so impressed with her writings, I signed up on her website to receive her free monthly Courage Newsletter. Each month, I anticipate reading the featured courage articles because they support me to sustain my courage. Many people have influenced me in my life, but Sandra’s work always reminds me about how it takes ‘Courage’ to reach beyond oneself. For example, it took a lot of courage for me to apply to the DKG Leadership Management Seminar, but I summoned my courage, applied and I was accepted. I have received so much insight into my own self and others from reading Sandra’s words of wisdom. I can honestly say that reading Sandra’s research on feminine courage and non-gender courageous leadership has changed my life for the better.”
