Do Negative Circumstances Make or Break You?

Qiana Hicks
Qiana Hicks is a mother, a college graduate, a career professional, and an author. Her parents were drug and alcohol addicts, and her father spent most of Qiana's youth in prison.  She has an MBA with a specialization in finance and is now managing a team of IT resources for a pharmaceutical management company in Minneapolis.
Although her life can be categorized as that of a disadvantaged childhood, due to her mother’s substance abuse problems, her biological father’s absence, and her stepfather’s alcohol and drug addictions, she survived a tumultuous youth. Qiana and her siblings suffered from many forms of abuse, neglect, and poverty and had to raise themselves.
At age 15, Qiana became an adolescent-parent.  But she worked tirelessly to overcome the challenges of her past and positioned herself to face the obstacles of the future. She finished high school on time, then enrolled in college immediately after graduation, and raised her son while pursuing a college degree and building a career. 
Qiana REFUSED to allow her past to determine who and what she would become.  She used her experiences as opportunities and lessons for her future, making her wiser and stronger.  (I nicknamed her Qiana 'tenacious' Hicks and you will too!)

What is the Difference Between a Rich Man and a Poor Man?

Stephen Scoggins has been referred to as an empowering communicator who educates audiences on how to heal from their past, grow where they are planted, then goes out to help others do the same.  




Coming from a broken home led him into a life full of failures and disappointments.  With minimal income coming in for his family, he was forced to drop out of high school and go to work -- just to keep the electricity turned on.  Roaches and Ramen noodles were Stephen's family's normal R & R time.

After training for a year for the U. S. military only to be rejected by circumstances never foreseen, he hit bottom.  Taking off his shoes, climbing over the railing of an overpass, he attempted to do a nosedive into oncoming rush hour traffic. But at the last moment, he made a phone call to someone who spoke 11 words to him that changed his life forever.

As a homeless man, dumpster diving for food, Stephen birthed a business, Custom Home Interiors, which is now a multi-million dollar company, located in multiple states employing over 400 team members.


So.....What is the Difference Between a Rich Man and a Poor Man?

You Can Eat Your Way Out of Depression


Annette Reeder
A uniquely qualified professional speaker and consultant, AnnetteReeder is a Nutritionist and graduate of Biblical Studies.  She founded Designed Healthy Living, Design Publishing and now Flavor of Grace Ministry.






Annette is the author of six books including Treasure of Health Nutrition Manual, Healthy Treasures Cookbook, and Baking with Whole Grain Goodness.

In her interview, Annette shared how many people live two lives.  They eat one way in front of others and then eat in secret and feel guilty.  This roller coaster can cause depression and extreme anxiety.  When you think of yourself as depressed, stressed, TIRED, or 'fat', it creates an unhealthy picture of yourself -- but that can be changed!

After years of dealing with the guilt, shame and being overweight, Annette hit bottom.  She had to make some changes as she was of little value to her family as her health was rapidly declining.  She took control and now can help others in the same vicious cycle.

What Happens When You Give Your Baby Up for Adoption?

Angela Rushing is a world traveler, adventurer, trust and freedom seeker, health and fitness enthusiast, animal advocate, and author.

After a successful career in the beauty industry as a top hairstylist in Los Angeles, it looked like I had it made, although my life felt empty and incomplete, unfulfilled and deeply depressed. Having grown up as the only child in an alcoholic family, I self-medicated well into my thirties and forties to numb the pain of my childhood and adolescence. I finally reached a point where I knew I had to make a significant change and find real meaning in my life, or I would likely die.

Her message rings true: You can't overcome obstacles in your life while in 'victimhood.'

Her book is called The Birth Mother Roller Coaster: Navigating through guilt and fear and arriving at self-love and completion. It is an account of how she became a birth mother. She shares her lonely childhood growing up in an alcoholic household, her teenage and young adult years of depression and her own drug and alcohol use. She knew her experience leading up to her adoption/placement and the feelings that came with that must be shared with the world.

Could You Forgive the Man Who Murdered Your Daughter?


Becki Reiser
Becki Reiser is an author of Through My Tears - Awash in Forgiveness.  Becki has lived through the worst nightmare a parent could ever have -- her daughter was murdered.  But that is not the whole story - what happened after the murder is nothing short of a miracle.

The book opens with the night of the murder and the dreaded knock at the Reisers’ door. One of the author's young sons went to the door, saw the police officer, and, too shocked to do much else, went to wake his parents. From that moment on, nothing would ever be the same for the author and her family. In fact, nothing would ever be the same for the officers, doctors, friends, family, and the Reisers’ hometown.

What follows is a detailed account from eyewitnesses, officers, and the author of what it was like to discover that a missing daughter was actually a murdered daughter. The remarkable aspect of Through My Tears is the intrepid bravery of Becki Reiser and the instant and assured assertion that the murderer was forgiven. The forgiveness soothed ragged hearts and offered solace and strength.

If you have ever lost someone, Becki's interview will strengthen and amaze you when you hear how Becki extended grace and forgiveness to the man who murdered her daughter.

How to Inspire Hope in the Dark Night of the Storm

Keri Fulmore is a Medical Intuitive who helps people connect to the root of their health and emotional blockages. Keri uses a blend of medical intuition, functional medicine, and nutrition to connect with her clients.  


Five years ago, Keri was bedridden with a big health crisis of body-wide nerve pain that attacked her overnight. I could barely get out of bed, let alone take care of my children.  It was one of the darkest storms of my life. 

I went through a lot of hopelessness in my health storm.  The pain I had in my body was a 10 out of 10.  Everything I did, required fighting back tears.  I remember lying in bed, the pain burning me like battery acid on my nerves, feeling exhausted, crying from the depths of my soul for help.  Praying for help.  I also remember feeling like there was no way out. That my prayers were not heard.  Medically, there was nothing wrong with me.  I often wondered how I could even get better if I didn’t know what was wrong.  I reached moments in the pain where I wished it could all be over.  I prayed for God to take me home, or show me a way.  I had reached my rock bottom.  Then she found a way.

Hope is the Only Thing Between You and the Abyss


Kathleen Pooler spent the first 18 years of her life in a loving, supportive family. The next 25 years were engulfed in the abyss of two abusive marriages. Pooler rescued herself and is now dedicated to helping other women (and men) do the same.

She hopes to help others find their inner strength through sharing her hard-earned lessons in her new memoir.  In addition to dealing with her two failed marriages, she was diagnosed with cancer and her son was abusing drugs.

Hope is often the only thing between you and the abyss







She sums up her message in these seven tips:

A loving family, solid career and a strong faith foundation do not guarantee a problem-free life.

We all have everything we need within, but we need to claim and honor our own inner strength to get the life we want and deserve.

Abuse, in any form, is harmful. Emotional abuse may not cause direct physical harm, but it can be damaging to your mind and your spirit.

The very things you think are holding you back from having the life you want can serve to help you find your way to freedom.

Hope matters, even when all seems hopeless in the moment.

Give yourself permission to GRIEVE!

Nothing can rescue you until...

 you decide to rescue yourself
