Living Courageously

When we think of people with courage, we have images of soldiers and firefighters, the brave men and women we’ve read about in our history books, those who give their lives for a cause they believe in…real heroes. But do we ever picture ourselves? How about a family member or friend?

What does it mean to live courageously in our everyday lives?

The thought-provoking words of Mary Anne Radmacher ring true, “Courage does not always roar. Sometimes courage is that little voice at the end of the day that says ‘I will try again tomorrow.’”
