Book Testimonials

A Gift in Every Challenge is an unforgettable book.  You will be haunted by the pain and oppression endured by Mary and her children as well as being inspired by their courage, valor, and resourcefulness.  In a time and a place where women were considered property at best, the remarkable women of the Lee family rose above poverty, sexism, racism, and abuse to build happy and secure lives.  Every woman who reads this book will be empowered and strengthened by its message.

Printed on a small wooden plaque in a gift shop was penned these words: “I am planning to have a nervous breakdown, I have earned it…I deserve it…I have worked hard for it…and nobody’s going to keep me from having it.”It’s easy to conclude “I just can’t win!” and succumb to life’s challenges. Rose underscores in this captivating read, “You CAN win!” Life’s challenges when faced head-on and well can be building blocks – not barriers, leading to a meaningful and successful life.

Sandwiched between the sometimes shockingly transparent life experiences of her Mother and herself, Rose presents some sound life principles on how you can turn tragedy into triumph.

J.B. Phillips paraphrased James 1:2-4 this way, “When all kinds of trials crowd into your lives, my brothers (and sisters), don’t resent them as intruders, but welcome them as friends! Realize that they have come to test your endurance. But let the process go on until that endurance is fully developed, and you will find you have become men (and women) of mature character.” Phillips provides here a pithy synopsis of this powerful read “A Gift in Every Challenge.” I commend it to you.
