Beneath the Surface: Silent Heroes in Our Midst


In this engaging interview, Betsy welcomes Jim B. North, writer, speaker, and former reporter with Gaylord News. Renowned for his multiple journalism awards, particularly for human interest storytelling, Jim North is the author of “UNSUNG HEROES WEAR NO CAPES: 12 Essential Virtues For An Extraordinary Life.”

During their insightful conversation, Jim delves into the motivation behind his book and explores some of the essential virtues it highlights, such as love, courage, friendship, honesty, hope, optimism, faithfulness, gratitude, and mercy. The core theme emerges as they discuss how love serves as the foundational virtue upon which these others can flourish, ultimately leading to a transformative impact on one’s life and the lives of those around them.

Betsy and Jim share an exploration of the profound ripple effects that individuals may unknowingly create in the world. They emphasize the heroic nature of caregivers and provide examples of unsung heroes, shedding light on the often-overlooked acts of kindness and virtue that shape our communities.
