“After reading your book I am so impressed with the many facets of you as a person, a professional, and a woman. Like many others, I read the entire book in one sitting – albeit that was the better part of my Saturday. I was hooked from the beginning and I had to find out how you overcame  the trials you encountered early in your life; only to find out with every chapter that you had yet another trial that you were able to get through and emerge a much stronger person. Your story is an inspiration to me and millions of women and I just wanted to thank you for opening up and sharing your life with us.” – Tracee G.

“My wife has been reading your book and has given me a chapter by chapter account. For her it is a ‘can’t put it down’ book. Her and my admiration for you and what you have overcome is immense! And interestingly, my appreciation for Jim and his protection of you and stability in your life is immense as well.” – Mike T.

“Thank you for writing the book. I stayed up til 2 am to read it. When I got to the part about Amber, I actually got out of bed and went to each of my kids’ rooms and hugged them, told them I loved them. Thank you for sharing story and for being brave enough to write it.” – Todd P.

“I just finished reading your book and I wanted to say thank you. I literally could not put it down until the last page. I grew up with a drug addicted mother and became a single mom myself at 17, your story of raising Randy on your own and your grandson’s struggles with his dad hit so close to home for me. It brought up emotions I didn’t know were still looming inside of me. I’m now a single mom of two beautiful little girls, I’m getting ready to buy my first house! I strive every single day to make sure my girls are raised with more…more love, more stability, more opportunity. Thank you for sharing such vulnerable parts of your life. Your strength and perseverance against all odds will always be such a huge example in my life. Because after all…’failure isn’t an option.’ – Haley K.

“I want to share with you some of my thoughts from your book. On the ‘domestic issues’ – I am so happy with some of the improvement our society has made – I know we are far from perfect, but your story needs to be told. And when I finished reading about Amber’s last moments, my heart goes out to you …. It makes me want to go home and shoot a few more hoops with my boy and read with my little girl. Thank you.” – Quinn D.
