Notes from Emily McQueen's Speech from the Power to Become Conference

     "Emily McQueen is a stay-at-home mother of five children and a volunteer. Emily is a well-known speaker on the topic of overcoming disabilities. At BYU-Idaho she was involved in an accident that left her a paraplegic. She has tackled competitive wheelchair racing finishing with three first place finishes." (http://www.byui.edu/p2b/p2b-speakers) The following notes were the live tweeting of her speech: In the trenches of life, I found a real friend, & my previous friendships were mostly superficial. I didn't want superficiality. What is your childhood dream? I didn't go back to it until many years past. Will you #p2become your childhood aspirations? Multiply your joy with your children by cherishing them. Learn the skill of clarity. It will open your mind to what is important. Skills from the trenches are drive, sensitivity, clarity, and hope.
