LORI SCHNEIDER INTERVIEW (1 OF 3)
On May 23, 2009, fifty-two-year-old Lori Schneider became the first person in the world with multiple sclerosis to summit Mount Everest. Lori is also the first person with MS to complete the “Seven Summits” by scaling the highest peak on each continent.
Badly shaken by an MS diagnosis at forty-three, Lori left her old life in Steamboat Springs, Colorado behind, convinced she would soon be confined to a wheelchair. Determined to make the most of every healthy day she had left, she relocated to the small town of Bayfield, Wisconsin, where she conquered her fears and gained confidence in her body by running marathons and climbing mountains, an avocation she had begun six years earlier by scaling Mount Killimanjaro with her father.

I wrote in an earlier post that I personally have no interest in pursuing death-defying adventures but that I respect and admire those who do challenge the limits of their physical endurance and emerge triumphant. It was a privilege and a pleasure to interview Lori and learn more about her remarkable attitude and excellent adventures!

THROUGH GOD’S EYES PDF SAMPLER
Phil’s eBook, The Logic of Living a Spiritual Life: Supporting a Life of Faith Through Logic and Reason, is now available for 99 cents on Amazon.
Order it at GodIsLogical.com.
In this eBook, you’ll find answers to questions like:
• What is the cornerstone of a spiritual life, and why?
• What is the secret to liberating yourself from other people’s judgments and expectations?
• Why is there an exception to “Everything happens for a reason”?
Those who worship logic instead of God are only half right. Not only is it logical to believe in God and to live a faith-based life, the existence of a loving, benevolent God that governs all creation is perhaps the only systematic worldview that explains every aspect of life.
