From the day his sister mocked him for not being able to read and write, Jesus E. Mendoza was determined to better himself. Turned away by numerous overcrowded schools reluctant to accept a ten-year-old into first grade, he finally persuaded a teacher to take a chance on him and let him sit on the floor at the back of her classroom. Within two months, Mendoza had learned to read and write. That same determination has carried Mendoza from an impoverished childhood in Mexico to a successful life in Texas as a businessman, husband, and father. Through it all, his faith in God has sustained him. From shining shoes as a six-year-old, supplementing the family income, to picking strawberries so that he could save for a bicycle, Mendoza has learned about the value of hard work and the importance of setting personal and financial goals. Rather than dismissing daydreams, he shows us how powerful they can be when combined with prayer, perseverance, and a commitment to living a Christian life. Let Jesus E. Mendoza's story inspire you-no matter your life circumstances-to nourish your dreams and not lose sight of your goals. Not yet fifty years old, he has overcome numerous obstacles and continues to help others through his church and his business ventures. By his example you'll see that with God's help, it is never too late to learn, to start something new, and to make positive changes in your life.
