The Light Within Me

I have just this week finished reading an inspirational memoir of a lovely lady who happens to be an anchor on the morning breakfast TV show, Fox & Friends.

We often watch this TV show at about 9pm EST and have always appreciated Ainsley Earhardt's warm personality.

The words of some of her contemporaries tell it all:

    "Very few public figures would ever be willing to be vulnerable and real by sharing their innermost thoughts and secrets. In The Light Within me, Ainsley does just that revealing the true secret of her success - her deep faith in God."
Fox News Channel television host and nationally syndicated radio host

    "If you are looking for a refreshing and uplifting account of a person who has found success without losing her bearings, this is it. Ainsley invites us to meet the people who shaped her, the principles that sustain her, and most of all, the faith that grounds her. In a day when so many public figures struggle to maintain balance, her story is a welcome breath of fresh air."
   --- MAX LUCADO, pastor and author

 I enjoyed reading about her passion for journalism and how much she was tested. But in that long road to the top, she maintained her dedication through plain hard work - never giving up. She is so open the way she shares those low moments many of us go through and the challenge of being a working mother.

Tim Tebow, a professional athlete, shares her secret. "Among other things, Ainsley is passionate about her relationship with Jesus."

I also believe such openness is God honoring and her reliance of the Lord for her strength really resonated with me. Reading the highs and lows of her story is a real inspiration for readers and writers alike.
