Read Detailed Book Description

“What I love about the human spirit is, if one person has access to it, we all do.” — Lisa Nichols In Living Proof, her first anthology since the bestselling book Chicken Soup for the African American Woman’s Soul, Lisa Nichols presents more than 35 transformational true stories of ordinary people who made the extraordinary decision not only to survive difficult challenges, but to embrace the blessings of their experiences—the gifts that came wrapped in sandpaper. In this book… Dr. Julie Thong shares her amazing story of surviving the Cambodian killing fields DC Cordova tells the story of how she overcame her deepest fears and manifested a meeting with Fidel Castro at the height of the Cold War Kim Warren-Martin, former Ms Black USA Metroplex, reveals how she survived a stalker’s attack and overcame her fears to return to the stage John McQueen conveys how the strategies he used to survive a childhood of poverty and foster care helped him succeed beyond his wildest dreams Myrtle Potter shares her story of parenting an autistic child, and how he taught her the true meaning of high-achievement From the Introduction by Lisa Nichols: “These stories are living proof that whatever you may be going through, the darkness is only temporary it’s not your destiny. This book is proof that you are greater than your circumstances, whatever they are. You have an opportunity to turn a test into your testimony; to turn a mountain into your platform; to turn the challenges that would break you into reasons you sing, write, speak, teach; and, like the co-authors in this book, offer up your story as living proof of what is possible.”About Lisa Nichols: New York Times bestselling author Lisa Nichols has reached millions around the world with her powerful message of empowerment, service, excellence and gratitude.
