  •  During a stint in the US Navy, Rudy Ruettinger discovered a dream in his gut—to attend Notre Dame and play football for their team. One of fourteen children, Rudy was never expected to succeed by teachers, partly because of an undiagnosed learning disability that resulted in poor grades. During school years his life was headed for trouble. How he accomplished his dream anyway is a heart-warming story that challenges readers to follow his example.

  Rudy always worked hard and then spent the time and effort to be even better. After his early dreams were amazingly fulfilled, he dreamed about a movie of his life—to inspire others with hope. That dream required years of perseverance and hard work–and discovering he’d sometimes trusted the wrong people.

 After graduating from college, he tried several careers and eventually found where he belonged. Rudy made and spent a great deal of money. However, in the great recession of 2008, he lost huge amounts. Discouraged for a while, Rudy regained hope in an unexpected way.

The honesty in this story of his struggles assures readers that their dreams can become reality.

About samcivy

I read my first book a week after beginning first grade and haven't slowed down in seventy years. My system often wakes me in the night so I keep books on a chair in the bathroom and do a LOT of reading. I'm a free-lance writer/editor and review books for various authors as well as Thomas Nelson Publishers and Amazon.com. I will soon be posting books for a blog tour by KathyWillis.com, a book promoter.
