Words about the book from the Author

Writing this book was the equivalent of completing a capstone project for my life. Having lived and surveying being sexually abused at the age of 10, or being told that I was not able to learn when I was in the 7th grade are just a few of the many challenges I faced during the course of my life.  Being able to look back over my life and invite others into my journey with a perspective that will help others overcome the trauma they may have experienced; and or help those who may be working with others to better understand and support them with a trauma-informed perspective is the goal of this project. This book is the reward for my survival of it all.  What I celebrate and hope you’re able to glean from this book is hope, courage, and grace to discover the purpose for your life.   No matter what you have experienced, you are still here and purpose is waiting for you to begin to walk in it. Be inspired and motivated to give back to those you choose to serve in the community. After all, you too have the ingredients to be resilient.
