SPRINGFIELD, Mo., November 18, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Fulton Books author Danny Hawkins, an educator, mentor, and ordained minister who owned and operated after-school clubs and programs that provided cultural enrichment services and educational services to the at-risk population, has completed his most recent book "Unbelievable: A Journey from Brokenness to Healing": a poignant and stirring memoir detailing the difficult and unimaginable challenges the author was forced to overcome in life.
"Countless people have mentioned that my life story has touched their hearts, encouraged them, and showed them the grace and mercy of God," writes Hawkins. "I am no one special. I'm just someone who has endured much hardship, trials, and struggles in my life. I have learned that in life, we cannot change the past but we can use our past as a tool to better our lives and to follow our dreams. My philosophy in life can be summed up with the phrase 'Do not let your past make the decisions of today, which can affect your tomorrow.'
"To prepare for this book, I gathered records from courts, the foster care system, the Missouri Division of Family Services, military records, school records, medical records, school yearbooks, public records, and newspapers, and I spent time interviewing people who knew my natural family. I even met with my natural mother, brothers, and sister. Slowly, the pieces of my life began to connect and make sense.
"This book will take you through the journey of my life—the good and the bad—as I share my life's story in my terms, from my memories, reflections, and experiences. I will open up aspects and areas of my life that have hidden dark memories and skeletons and, for many years, have guarded secrets. You will discover the good and the bad, my successes and my failures, as well as my mistakes and shortcomings. I do not pretend to be perfect, nor do I pretend like my past does not affect me today. I choose to use my past as a tool to achieve my dreams and to help and inspire others. You will understand that my life story is unbelievable and filled with many possibilities."
Published by Fulton Books, Danny Hawkins's book is a captivating portrait of a man who, despite the obstacles placed in front of him, managed to succeed and surpass what was thought possible for him.
