What an amazing gift

Listening to Howard Thurman was like discovering a treasure for me. Eloquent, poignant and authentic are some of the words that come to mind to describe this genius of a man. His words will stir you making you think from a higher perspective. I'm on course to read as much of his work as possible. His work is truly transformative.
