Ruth Stafford Peale<< All Articles
Yesterday morning my dear friend Ruth Stafford Peale went to be with the Lord. Both Dr. Peale and his wife had a profound impact on my career. Reading THE POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING helped me through the difficult years of rejection when I first started writing.
When I sold my first book, I wrote Dr. Peale and thanked him for writing his book. He wrote me back! His letter is one of my life’s treasures. My daughters and I attended Ruth’s 100th birthday party in New York City in 2006, and I was in Pawling, NY, last November to see her. We shall miss a great, great lady. I consider it an honor to have known and loved her.
