He Walks Like a Cowboy

He Walks Like a Cowboy

An honest discussion of the human spirit, the value of a positive attitude, and how strength can be found in the weakest of places. This podcast journey will take you beyond your comfort zone out to where you start to really learn about yourself and your ability to navigate seemingly impassable waters. We will discuss times where my disability has empowered me to learn about strength. We will have guests on who are champions of overcoming adversity and making the world shine brighter. And we will help you to start to see your challenges as your greatest gifts. Jonah Berger is a 48 year old Youth Director and Motivational Speaker. He works with kids and adults who deal with disabilities. He is a husband, a father, an author, a drummer, a leg brace wearer and an observer of life. Jonah uses his own disability to help listeners learn more about their own challenges and how to use them as strengths. Come take a walk with Jonah down the path of perspective that will leave you thinking and smiling.
