Inside this episode

Born with what others would call Handicaps
– He has NO arms or hands, and malformed legs –
Jeff Steinberg wants you to know that,
“You’re A Masterpiece in Progress!”
This 4’6” Tiny GIANT appears on stages
across the globe, delivering his very
special message, ”Quit focusing
on the Handicap and start
appreciating the Gift.

 

He stands 4’6” tall on wobbly legs; he holds a microphone with a metal hook attached to a myo-electric
prosthetic arm; yet he commands the entire stage and fills the auditorium with his “UNIQUE” message:
“You’re A Masterpiece In Progress!”
Speaker / Author / Entertainer Jeff Steinberg IS a Masterpiece In Progress!! Born August 18, 1951 no
arms, severely deformed legs and a doctor’s prediction that he would not survive, Jeff spent his early years in
hospitals, including Shriners’ Hospital for Crippled Children in Philadelphia, PA; facing orthopedic surgery, learned
to walk with a brace and was fitted with his first prosthetic arm. At age nine, he was placed into The Good
Shepherd Home for the Physically Handicapped in Allentown, PA until he was 19.
As a young boy, Jeff learned the truth that would become the foundation of his life: “I am made to be awesome and
wonderful!!” (Psalm 139:14).

Jeff Steinberg sees his disabilities as assets, not liabilities. Jeff is living proof that, “…the difficult we do right away, the
impossible takes a little longer!” He travels the globe with a very special message; that a real handicap is “…anything that keeps
me from being or becoming all that I was created to be!” “Quit focusing on the handicap and start appreciating The Gift!”
For more than 45 years He has performed on TV Variety Shows & telethons. He was Co-Host for an
entertaining and original informative Television Special, called “The Best You Can Be…The
Handicapped Hall of Fame.” He was headline for the luncheon for “The President’s Council on Hiring
Persons with Disabilities;” he appeared on “The Variety Club Telethon” with Host Monte Hall in the
U.S. and CANADA. Jeff has shared the stage with such names as Barbara Mandrell, Zig Ziglar,
NFL Superbowl Champion Rocky Bleier, John Goodman, Senator Bob Dole, Jim Nabors, Former CEO
of Guerilla Marketing; The Icon Builder David Fagan, The Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and the list
goes on.
However, a true highlight of his career was a memorable appearance on stage with Mother Teresa of
Calcutta during her 1989 U.S. visit.
He has enjoyed speaking to Schools and Universities (including Notre Dame University), U.S Military troops in Europe and more.
In 1987 Jeff Steinberg was inducted into the Good Shepherd Hall of Fame for People with Disabilities for his achievements in
the field of music, for his advocacy on behalf of the physically challenged, and for carrying the message that everyone is a
Masterpiece in Progress
Jeff Steinberg is the recipient of the prestigious 2015 Artist Music Guild Heritage Award for Comedian of The Year. He is also a
multiple nominee in other categories, as well.
Jeff Steinberg has recorded several audio CD’s & video projects including, “Masterpiece in Progress,” “Tiny Giant” on his own
GlovePRINTS label.

Legacy Stories With P.K. Eastman

Don’t forget to Subscribe for more Prosperity Profiles!

P.K. Eastman, M.S.W., is founder and CEO of Right Time…Write Now! P.K. believes everyone has a
powerful, compelling story to tell. Her job is to help you find it, define it, refine it and then write
that story and preserve it for your family and future generations. She has dedicated her life to
family and our relationships therein. “Our brains are hardwired for story and it is how we build
connections with family, friends and business associates. When you tell your story you are
transformed and you begin defining your legacy.” When you hear her speak on her favorite subject
you become an instant believer.
P.K. began telling stories to her younger brother at age five, was writing stories by 12, and tutored
students in writing at age 15 in her high school. Her first college degree in English and
Humanities surprised no one. Upon graduating, she returned to High School to teach English and
Creative writing.
Although she loved teaching, P.K. and her husband wanted a family. For the next 14 years, P.K.
transferred her teaching skills to the home as she mothered five children and gave more than
30,000 hours of volunteer service to her church, public schools and various community non-profit
organizations. When her youngest turned two, she decided her next challenge would be Graduate
School. There she earned a Masters Degree in Social Work and during her second year gave birth
to her sixth child.
Five years ago, after a 15 year illness, during which P.K. cared for him, her husband passed away.
They had lost everything. In December 2015 after 60 years living in the clouds and rain of the
Pacific Northwest, she packed up the few possessions she had left, and moved to beautiful St.
George, Utah, where she knew not a soul. “I decided I had to make a choice. I could crawl into a
corner at my brother’s house or the basement of one of my children’s homes and play woe is me for
the rest of my life. Or I could use all the gifts with which the Lord has blessed me, and focus on
building a new life and identity. I chose door number 2. “
Not everyday has been easy, as she will tell you, yet her business is thriving and anyone who meets
her is amazed by the sunshine and energy she brings to into a room. Her six children are
successfully raising families in Oregon, Northern Utah, and Kentucky. P.K. is adept at Social Media
and it is how she stays in close touch with 19 grandchildren, ranging in age from 23 to 2.
