If not dealt with, life failures can put people into a paralysis state of mind.  It’s important to know that life will deal you many different kinds of hands, some are good and some are bad.  Join me and my Special guest, Pastor Nicole Griffin as we discuss her new book “Triumphant, The New Me” and what propelled her to write a book on helping women to get past their failures.

Nicole is no stranger to heartache, tragedy, abandonment and shame. She was raised in the housing projects in the inner city “slums” of Louisville, KY. She saw more violence, drug dealing, and scandals before the age of 12 years old than most people see in their entire lives. After her first year of college, Nicole’s mother (the only parent she had ever known) died of a massive heart attack in her late 40’s causing her to feel deserted and discouraged. Her life went downhill from there as she searched for love in all of the wrong places to fill her void. She experienced sexual, physical, mental and even spiritual abuse. Her early learned faith is what gave her hope that one day God would change her life and make her a beacon of light for other females. She did not accept the victim mentality, but went on to become a Holy Ghost filled, fearless Christian and business leader, obtained several undergrad college degrees as well as a Master’s Degree in Ministerial/Pastoral Leadership from Wesleyan Seminary. Now as a pastor and motivational speaker, she has the opportunity to speak to thousands of women across the nation to help them understand that they are “greater than their failures”.
