Hi, my name is Mark McElroy, husband and father to Laura, Halie, Kali, Kaycee, and Wyatt and many other equine and feline family members.
I started to write this book well over 12 years ago. Life just seemed to get in the way of my completing it.
It is about my journey to find a cure for the epileptic seizures that began 29 years ago and continue to torment me. The knowledge I gained and am relaying to the readers are specific on how to deal with epilepsy. However, I feel that the life patterns formed and the habits I created from those experiences will apply to a broad range of people with or without a handicap.
I want to relay many things but the 2 main points that I want to come across is how perseverance, tenacity, and the Grace of God helped me overcome and succeed in spite of a life altering, life threatening, and ongoing battle with epilepsy. The second is that anyone can do the same.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of Persistence.
Talent will not; nothing is more commonplace than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and Determination alone are omnipotent."
I want to add one addition to this quote. You must be persistent with the right thoughts and actions in mind.
Without His grace I would not be here today to be a husband and a daddy or help others become successful. I owe Him everything I have and it is because of Him that I developed the sincere belief that all people should be treated with dignity and you can learn from of them. It may be positive or it may be negative but, you will learn something.
