From the Publisher
Mattie Stepanek is familiar to millions from his two New York Times bestsellers, Heartsongs and Journey Through Heartsongs, and his appearances on Oprah, Good Morning America, and many other television and radio shows. In this new book, Mattie writes poetry about sustaining hope when your life and your world challenge you. Mattie's struggle with a rare form of muscular dystrophy has not diminished his ability to see light and hope in each individual and in the world. Hope Through Heartsongs includes poetry in sections called "Hope for within," "Hope for Each Other," and "Hope for the World." In his young life, Mattie has faced a spectrum of loss and joy surprising to many, but natural to this poet and peacemaker. Read these poems and know that no matter how difficult some situations seem, with hope there is light.

To think that this blessed child has probably never even been around somebody as wise as himslef... That's touching and that is how you can tell that his heart is true. He really beleived what he wrote, and that's actually rare.

I think Mattie is one of my Hero's now. He had such a positive outlook on life. He's someone to really look up too.
