Myrna Peterson is sharing her story and idea worth spreading about redefining tragedy into grace disguised.

Myrna Peterson was born in south eastern Iowa, the 10h of 11 children, and raised on a Field of Dreams farm. After from high school Myrna went on to college to become a teacher. Her teaching career took her to the Twin Cities, Brainerd, Blackduck and then to Deer River. Myrna went back to school in 1989 and received her Masters from Bemidji State University in educational technology. In June 1995, Myrna became a quadriplegic with a spinal cord injury from an auto accident, and her world was forever changed. Many adversities have altered the course of Myrna's 21 years in a wheelchair.
