About The Book

Have you ever arrived at a place in life where you knew you were created for more, and you were hungry for more?

You knew you possessed greatness, but the life you’d been living didn’t mirror the life you desired or even deserved.

These authors, who share their stories in The Breaking Point, wanted more in life. Yes, they were broken, afraid, and flawed, but decided to believe in themselves.

They wanted to live in their full purpose and potential and did what was required to obtain it.

With strong conviction and passion, they made the necessary turns and adjustments because they wanted more from life.

This book will inspire you to bet on yourself and push forward, despite what you face, knowing that you have what it takes to steer the course of your life in the direction you deserve.

The Breaking Point is stories by men and women on how they came to that turning point and were able to overcome adversity and reach their own personal breakthrough in life.

Each story will encompass their unique struggle of how they overcame the challenges to find that you had the courage, the power, and the resolve to build your life again.

This book will serve as a potent reminder that everyone has the power to choose which direction they want for their own lives.

These twenty women and men, some first-time authors, said yes to the transformation; yes to the stretching; yes to going back to those dark places that brought them pain. Because they knew what they experienced wasn’t just for them, but it was for others who will come behind them needing those words to pull them up and help them move to a place of wholeness. These authors are writing from a place of victory, a place where they are no longer the victim.

Excerpt Chapter:

Discovering My Strength

“I was done with the party life that didn’t satisfy me anymore. I had enough of being second to his friends and done with feeling unappreciated. I had put everyone before my wants and desires, and dreams. Now, I was done with feeling like I was wasting my life and not accomplishing something I could be proud of. Enough of going through life unfulfilled and empty, catering to others. But what do I do? How will I survive? I have a child, no job and my husband wants a divorce. Help me, Jesus. I don’t know what to do?

Have you been there? Have you gone through something so devastating it forced you to dig deep within and pull on strength you didn’t even know you had? I did. It forced me to learn to focus, to place blinders on and move at my pace. Being stubborn can be an attribute; it can create resilience.”
