Helen Kellerís Spiritual Faith

For many, Helen Keller is a shining example of a valiant spirit. The young deaf, blind, and mute girl, who surmounted terrible handicaps to learn how to communicate, became an icon of hope to generations, and an ambassador of good will throughout the world. But while most of us are familiar with the outlines of Helenís story, popularized in The Miracle Worker, few know that it was her deep spirituality that gave her strength and hope. With the help of her profound faith, she transformed her life into one lived in service of the Good.

Let Helen Kellerís inspiring words serve as a touchstone and a reminder for us all. Read them here:

I am only one, but still I am one; I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; I will not refuse to do the something I can do.
–Helen Keller

Inspired by Shining Soul: Helen Kellerís Spiritual Life and Legacy, a DVD produced and directed by Penny Price (Swedenborg Foundation, 2006).
