Kendra Gottsleben of Sioux Falls knows what it takes to triumph over life's adversities!

Kendra, who has been featured on KXRB's Award Winning 'I Love Life' series, recently published her first book.  It's titled: "Live, Laugh, Lemonade: A Journey of Choosing to Beat the Odds."

Kendra, who works as a special projects coordinator within the Center for Disabilities at the Sanford School of Medicine, was born with a rare genetic condition.  It has affected her growth---not her attitude.  In Kendra's own words, "It has made me look at life with determination and refusing to give up.  I don't really recognize anything different with me.  It's just what I've always known."

Kendra Gottsleben doesn't dwell on what she calls the lemons in life.  She is much took busy focusing on her many blessings!
