*The Story of My Life* may be the most extraordinary autobiography ever written. Its author was only 22 when it was published, in 1903, but her life to that point had already been most uncommon: she had been rendered deaf, blind, and later mute by an illness at the age of 19 months, and only years later learned to read, speak, and understand others through the dedication of a teacher extraordinary in her own right. American author and activist HELEN ADAMS KELLER (1880-1968) became famous thanks to *The Story of My Life,* which was later adapted for stage and screen in various incarnations under the title *The Miracle Worker,* a reference to that special teacher, Annie Sullivan. Here, in her own words, is Keller's firsthand experience of the dawning of enlightenment on the severely isolated child she was, and her evolution into the educated and erudite young woman she became.

In our world today, we hear so many hollow words. Words that mean nothing. Words that we are not certain are truthful. Words that try to impress us and others. Words that are weak and powerless. We hear words that are negative and legalistic. I certainly hope the words in this book are not meaningless, empty, and negative. I have intended for the words to bring you peace, love, and insight. I want these words to bring you hope and joy. They are intended for you to live a more fulfilled life. I hope you will find this book to be just what you needed to hear. It is not because I have wisdom, however; I have prayed that the Lord would use these words to be helpful and encouraging. If you have been wounded, I hope you will find these words of comfort. If you have experience prolonged struggles, I hope you will find God is looking after you and wants to give you comfort and peace. If your life is at the crossroad and you need to make a decision to what is right or wrong, please do what is right, not just what feels right to you. If you are the person who believes that you are unlovable, I hope you find insight in this book about how deeply the Lord loves you and wants a relationship with you.
