Help Eric Publish 2 Impacting Books
The story of the project
INSTEAD i was sent to Ghana for 7 years and had my passport *disappear*! I didn’t see that coming :p
Living in such harsh conditions and feeling alone, I reached a place of low self worth, self value and become hopeless about my future. I was depressed and wanted to do nothing else but give up, I attempted suicide twice but thankfully had someone intervene both times.
The turning point of my story started with someone who went out of their way one morning, looked at me in the face and spoke words of encouragement and the bright future ahead of me, although this was contradictory to my circumstance; I left with a sense hope and purpose, the beginning of my dreams!
Fast Forward 8 years and the words the man had spoken over me started to come true, i started speaking in Church’s, High schools and corporate functions; speaking life, hope and overcoming adversity!
My dream and passion is to help people chase their dreams and make a difference! To help them leave behind a great legacy for the generations that follow.
I believe these books can do just that! It is a way of getting this life changing message across to as many people as possible! Help me make this happen by choosing one of the rewards!
