When life has you down, the
only thing left to do is...Rise!

Born to a 16-year-old single mother, Frank Thomas was set up to fail from his very first breath. As a youth plagued by poverty, neglect, and his parent's addictions, he clung to anyone positive who could help him escape his hardships. When the two families who helped raise Thomas abandoned him, he succumbed to the family business of dealing drugs. Shortly after, he was arrested and pled guilty to a felony. In an attempt to salvage his life and leave the drug culture behind, he left his family and moved to Southern California. Several months later, on a visit back to the Midwest, he was arrested again. This time for drugs that belonged to his mother. Put to the test, she turned her back him to save herself. Facing up to sixty years in prison for a crime he didn't commit, Frank was left to fight for his life.
 

In this life-changing book about shame, struggle and triumph, Frank demonstrates the keys to overcoming every obstacle and challenge you'll ever face.  He shares how:
  • Your faith is the key to unlock your destiny
  • Your courage to rise in the darkest moments is the key to overcoming life's struggles

  • Your willingness to be vulnerable opens doors
  • Your worst failures will fuel your greatest achievements
  • Your ability to forgive self and others brings healing and freedom
  • Your story is the key to unlock someone else's destiny
Frank's story epitomizes an undeniable fact: your past does not define your destiny. Discover how he found the strength to rise and be who he was created to be...and how you can do the same.
