Tonight's special guest is Faith Reagan (McDaniel) from Jacksonville, Florida, a self-described survivor-turned-thriver, now a Certified Life Empowerment Coach. She helps her clients move forward by breaking boundaries that have held them back. She assists in helping them identify goals in their personal and professional life as well as to make a plan to achieve them. Born in Kentucky as the second oldest of five children, Faith McDaniel grew up in a troubled family. "My father liked to play with little girls," she explains. He used a slew of persuasive tactics to keep Faith silent, usually by telling her that her mother would leave him and the children would be left to fend for themselves. After years of abuse, Faith became rebellious and occasionally ran away from home. Eventually she found relief in the military and decided to join the Air Force. "My father said my mother would never agree." She decided to use some creative persuasion, explaining to her father that she would tell her mother about his abusive ways if he didn't talk his wife into letting her join. "Joining the Air Force was the best thing I could have done," she says. "What was I going to do, be a street whore?" Faith feared at the rate she was going, life on the streets was a possibility. Now Faith openly talks of her troubled childhood and has come to terms with her past. Once she learned not to beat herself up for what happened in her youth everything seemed to click. "I've got nothing to hide. I'm not a victim; I'm a survivor. I want people to know you can get out of a bad situation and succeed. With all the negatives you see today, if you have drive and desire, you can overcome anything." Please see: Surviving With Faith
