Includes the following true stories:
Lawrence Punter is a former college athlete and flight instructor. A successful entrepreneur and businessman. If you met him—all six feet five inches of him—you would never guess that this handsome, soft-spoken man, who often shares his story in prisons, was once a boy nobody seemed to love.
Timiney Visser grew up in Austin, Texas. Her bright personality and welcoming smile make you think of a cheerleader, a flight attendant, a natural optimist or an extrovert. Meeting her, you would never guess that she had a past she could not outrun.
Rich Crisalli is a former Wall Street trader. A partner in a successful firm who had everything he wanted; a family, a million dollar home, expensive cars, and plenty of girlfriends. Why was he so unhappy?
Robin is the granddaughter of Jewish émigrés who escaped communist Russia to settle in the United States. Fun-loving and friendly, she tells of a time in her life when darkness threatened to over-take her.
Kaitlin Pinkleton has spent most of her life living first in South Carolina and then in Florida. As a child, she heard of stories of a storm that wreaked havoc in Charleston, South Carolina. Years later, facing her own personal storms, she spent three days on a bus trying to escape the havoc that was threatening her life.
Alexander Colon, the fifth of seven children, grew up in Brooklyn, NY. A tough guy with tons of friends, he would be the first to tell you that he shouldn’t be alive to share his story.
Dr. Toni Ginés-Rivera is the director of the Alliance Graduate School of Counseling at Nyack College in New York City. Because of the significant headwinds she faced in the early years of her life, no one would have voted her the girl most likely to succeed. Nor would they have predicted the path her healing would take.
