[Extract from: The Fearless Mother]
Know that there is a promise of a better day when you have faith and believe in the power within that is granted by the one above. I want to make fulfill my purpose and change my life even those around me using this book as a way to testify to you that you can also rise above and be a fearless mother. I talk about faith because it is by faith I saw my child as special and it is by faith that I was able to keep my head up and bury my father and brother and finally it is by faith that I was able to write this book in order to let you know my journey will never be the same as yours but the road we use is the same.
I want to reach out to you as a mother and in my humble believe let you know that the greatest possible point of not giving up is in the power of faith. To gain faith you must be willing to:
Accept the situation without allowing it to pull you down.
Don’t ask why does this have to happen to me?
Know the power is vested inside of you from the one above.
Let your reasons of living pull you forward.
Fall with your back in order to rise up looking up.
