If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl, but whatever you do you have to keep moving forward.
Everybody can be great … because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.

Life’s Tough: YOU Can Be TOUGHER!

When Dustin was four, his father beat a man to death right in front of him. He was not traumatized by it because this was just another typical day in the Roper household. A year earlier, Dustin’s 5-year old sister, Tenille, became his adopted mother, as they were left to fend for themselves in their trailer-park home with their dad—a criminal, dangerous gang member, and drug addict. Dustin’s memoir is a blueprint on how to resolve the past, no matter how turbulent or unfair it was, and transform it into an endless source of energy to build the life you want—the life you deserve. Life’s Tough: YOU Can Be TOUGHER! shows you how to go from surviving to thriving.
