In Time to Rise, Dr. Andrea Pennington presents 29 inspiring tales of people from various backgrounds and cultures who didn’t let tragedy and defeat hold them back. They discovered that the ability to follow your heart, listen to your intuition and bounce back after stress can be strengthened.

These stories cover events ranging from dealing with stress on the job and healing from divorce to overcoming eating disorders and healing from trauma. What these people all have in common is how they used these problems to transform their lives for the better. They prove that you can take control of your life.

The book is divided into 4 sections including:

  • Rising to the Occasion
  • Life Redefined
  • Hitting Reset
  • My Life, My Way

Life isn’t about avoiding the uncomfortable. It’s about meeting these challenges head-on and taking ownership of our destinies. Get your copy of Time to Rise today and be inspired to live life on your own terms, with passion and purpose.
