Listening with My Heart by Heather Whitestone, Miss America 1995

Although Heather Whitestone will be forever known as the first Miss America with a disability, she would probably prefer to be remembered as a young woman whose deafness taught her discipline and unwavering belief in God. In this sometimes saccharine memoir, Miss America 1995 recounts the story of her inspiring life, beginning with a childhood fever that left her profoundly deaf. That impairment would, in turn, leave her fiercely independent and strong willed. --School Library Journal

Let God Surprise You

Let God Surprise You - Heather Whitestone McCallum Miss America 1995Let God Surprise You

When former Miss America Whitestone developed a high fever at the age of 18 months, she lost her hearing and entered a silent existence. Yet as she matured, Whitestone refused to be daunted by this loss and worked diligently to become a ballerina, learn to speak fluently and set energetic goals for her future. Whitestone's life story continues through each concise chapter in this book, which is part autobiography and part Bible lesson.

She and co-author Angela Hunt (who have partnered before in Listening with My Heart) present numerous examples where God inspires Christian believers during difficult phases of life and surprises them with timely, providential provision.

Miss America by Day - Marilyn Van Derbur, Miss America 1957

Miss America by Day - Marilyn Van Derbur, Miss America 1957Miss America by Day - Marilyn Van Derbur, Miss America 1957

Marilyn Van Derbur, a former Miss America, tells the story of how she was sexually violated by her prominent, millionaire father from age 5 to age 18. She was 53 years old before she was able to speak the words in public, "I am an incest survivor." She opened the door for tens of thousands of sexual abuse survivors to also speak the words, many for the first time, within their own families and communities.

Marilyn describes, in detail, what specific "work" she did on her journey from victim to survivor. After learning of a woman’s rape, Marilyn heard a close friend say, "It was a bad 20 minutes." In the hope that rape and sexual abuse will no longer be as easily dismissed or minimized, Marilyn writes for the first time about what her father did to her and what the impact has been on her adult life.
