  3. I thought the most interesting part of the story was when he talked about the concept "Think Big".
    I learned that if you really want to do well on an assignment or project is just that you should think big.

  4. My favorite parts were all the cases of the craniopagus twins and the operations done on them. Though alought of them died, I thought it was very interesting that newborns could be born like that. My favorite one was the Makwaeba twins. Though they did die, the equipment used for the surgery stayed in South Africa, and the doctors in the hospital there were able to save many more lives.

  6. I thought that the piece about him being able to face racial slurs was most definitely the best, see I think that it is the most inspiring chapter simply because anyone who can take slurs like that is extremely courageous. Doctor Ben Carson's life is well simply put, inspiring I think his story is purely amazing(especially the chapter about him dealing with his anger issues.)

  9. My favorite part was when he explained how the audience raised all of their hands. I think that it's amazing that our body can do that. It just goes to show that God is smart, powerful, and amazing to be able to do something like that.

  10. What I thought was awesome about the book was that Ben was the most dumb kid in the fith grade and than like turned into one of the best Drs. In the world. I also liked when Ben was talking to the kids at the school, when he said every thing about the ear then he said that, that was the simple way. That was an amazing book!

  14. The part of the book that I found most interesting was when Ben separated the Siamese twins. I didn't even know an operation like that could be possible. I'm sure Ben has a lot of faith in God to be able to do those amazing operations.

  15. My favorite parts about the Ben Carson Story are the many times God saved his life and gave him the ability to save other people's lives as well. The first time that God saved Ben's life is when he fell asleep when he was driving. Luckily, he woke up just in time to avoid being hit by a tractor trailer! The second time God helped him is when it was the night before a big test and he didn't know any of the answers. When he fell asleep, he had a strange dream that told him the answers to all the questions. After he got his doctors degree, he decided to be a brain surgeon. One day he was asked to separate two Siamese twins. Ben and his team worked for hours. When they came out , Ben handed the twins mother two separate babies. All this comes to prove that God has a plan for us and is always there for you. I will trust in God and follow his plan.

  21. In the book Gifted Hands the most interesting part to me was when Dr. Ben Carson performed his first surgery on the siamese twins. I think that that could relate to my life when I get older by always trying to do my best. If I end up doing that then I think good things will happen later.

  22. To me the most interesting part was after the Binder twins when Ben prayed," Oh God please let these two survive." Soon enough 10 days later the two started moving and opened their eyes. This lets you know that if you're ever in a bind that you can alway ask God for help.
