Behind the Book
In Liane’s Senior year of high school she won an award for the “Most Inspirational Athlete”. While she was athletic, the ability to excel in sports was more due to her drive and persistency than it was her skill. She played with a lot of heart and that effort and commitment showed even back then.
Liane believes that inspiration is not only about success. Being inspired can come from having perseverance to overcome obstacles. From watching someone face adversity, deal with it, and somehow live their life as if nothing can stop them. Not allowing themselves to dwell on setbacks, but finding opportunities with everything that comes their way. It gives us hope that we too can succeed knowing that we are already or may in the future face similar challenges in life.
In her book Hope Inspires Strength, Liane shares the hardships felt losing her father at an early age and how that impacted her. She shares the difficulties of being a caregiver and how that experience and responsibility can impact people. She shares the successes and failures that come from building a career to show that you can love and take care of family and be your own
Also, she shares the happiness of having children and the journey, which is challenging with a child that has special needs. But most importantly, shares how the attitude and perspective learned from her mom and son can provide gratitude for the life we have.
