The Rise of the Unlikely Heroes

Updated: Dec 17, 2018

What happens when you cross an ordinary person with a near impossible task?

Is there an unlikely hero in you?

Join Rebecca Hulse, Bret Rockmore and Marilyn Bradford as Katarina dives into this fascinating arena and explores the sudden rise of Unlikely Heroes in books and movies like Harry Potter, the Hunger Games, Divergent, Maze Runner and the hobbits in Lord Of The Rings. And while unlikely heroes some times have magical powers that they need to learn how to use and nurture into mastery, it is their "never give up, never give in, never quit" resilence that allows them to shine.

Who is your unlikely hero? Did that person become greater? What is required to take that leap?

And if an unlikely hero fails, then what…?

The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings

The Hunger Games

The Magic of Recluce

Anne of Green Gables

Percy Jackson and the Olympians
