A Directory of Inspiration, Perseverance and Hope

This is where the 'mind and soul' come together in providing sustenance for the 'body' in living with a disability, a chronic condition or just simple day to day stress . We're compiling information from various sources to provide you with profiles of incredible people who've overcome incredible odds as well as philosophical and spiritual observations, viewpoints and resources to help you keep your spirit motivated and positive when facing tough challenges to your overall wellness.

Please visit often as the directory grows with time. And if you would like to submit the name of someone you know who is a great example of positive spirit and perseverance and that we should feature, please send us an email to info@LauraAndWagner.com
