Stories about

“Triumph Over Adversity: The Compilation” will take you on a riveting journey of love, pain, sacrifice and ultimately forgiveness. Our compilation of memoirs have been written by a group of phenomenal women that have united to share their personal stories of triumph, in an effort, to spread awareness about domestic violence, sexual assault, child abuse, suicide prevention, bullying, and much more. We are confident that each story will inspire you to trust God in every aspect of your life; while teaching you how to surmount your challenges by forgiving those that hurt you… as forgiveness, is one of the key elements in overcoming adversity.

I wanted to write to you all and share some good news with you. I wanted to let you know that I have passed my African American History I class and earned an “A”! I am enrolled in part two of the course, which begins next week. Thank you, once again, for your assistance with purchasing the required book. I appreciate your support.
