Our 1st “My Gutsy Story®” is by Jennifer Graham, “Interracial Couple: An Immoral Proposal.”
SONIA MARSH SAYS: What a beautiful love story that truly portrays the emotions you felt at the time. I love the ending and am glad we connected online.
Our 2nd “My Gutsy Story®” is by Colleen Hannegan, “My journey, My search to Re-Discover Myself.”
SONIA MARSH SAYS: Your story will resonate with so many who “accept” their situation, rather than take the steps to become free.
Our 3rd “My Gutsy Story®” is by: Savannah Grace, “My Gutsy Love Story”
SONIA MARSH SAYS: I admire your courage to go with your gut, and not be swayed by others. What a meaningful statement to help those who are unsure of what to do.
“If people could not accept and let me be who I needed to be then I could only wish for that acceptance, not be expected to change my life for other people. Trying to change who I am to please others would not bring me happiness…so I had no choice but to follow my heart.”
Our 4th “My Gutsy Story®” is by Nancy McBride, “When President Jimmy Carter’s Wife Stopped By.”
SONIA MARSH SAYS: You are one “Gutsy” and funny lady. I love your exit interview strategy. Also your artwork is so unique and whimsical.
Our 5th “My Gutsy Story®” is by: Jonathan Yanez, “My Road to Becoming an Author.”
