I Wasn't Dead When I Wrote This
Advice Given in the Nick of Time
Youth minister Lisa-Marie Calderone-Stewart gives a powerful testament to life in I Wasn't Dead When I Wrote This, a collection of the best practical advice she has given and received while working with young people. Written in her final months before dying of cancer, here are a few examples of Calderone-Stewart's wise counsel:
Learning how to forgive is one of the most essential tasks of adulthood.
You don't have to save the world.
You only have to find the one area in which you can serve.
Don't waste a minute of your life regretting who you are or wondering why you couldn't be some other person.
You are just what the world needs now.
It is never too late to change your life or to shape someone else's—and Calderone-Stewart does just that with this honest, heartfelt perspective on living written a few months before dying.
