When I set out to read Arise From the Ashes, I was initially taken aback by the controversial topic in the first paragraph. As I continued reading I became more intrigued by the author’s circumstance. In fact, each story shared in Arise From the Ashes provided a fascinating view into the lives of women whose life circumstances could have nearly destroyed them, but by the grace of God, they came out victoriously.
No two stories tell the same or a similar circumstance, yet each shows how a woman’s life can become entangled by tough situations whether you’re married, single, a mother, a daughter or in the ministry. Tough circumstances touch us all. We don’t have to go looking for challenges; they find us.
Women taking charge of their circumstance is evident in the book. And, some of their situations were really sticky. The question each author had to ask herself is this: “This is my circumstance, but what am I go to do now”? From there the authors walk the reader through the moment that catapulted the change.
One thing I really appreciated is that none of the authors made excuses for their part in making a bad decision. Instead, she acknowledged the decision for the mistake it was, which allowed her to moved forward to success. The showed readers the hope that comes from knowing mistakes need not become a life-long sentence.
If you’re anything like me, after reading this book, you’ll want to celebrate *life* with the authors. I give God all the glory for the things He has done in their lives.

"Arise From The Ashes" By... Paulette Harper, Yolando Cooksey, Donna Moses, Cassietta Jefferson, Angie Jones, Sydney Delatorre and Michelle Mills
Seven beautifully told anthologies of women who have gone through the fire, walked in places that others dare not tread."
For Paulette Harper in 'Losing to Win" in how she dealt with it all after her divorce.
"Divorce was a painfully difficult choice. However, once the decision was made, I had to make plans for my new future." How did she begin this process? Read along and see how this process worked out so well for her. "Never Let Disappointments in Life Define Your Purpose."
For Yolando Cooksey in 'Unfailing Love' what happens after she gives her life truly to God? Definitely trying to 'distract myself with drugs, alcohol and men...too many men' was not the way to go in life. What happens when Yolando makes a change in her life?
For Donna Moses in 'Unexpected Life's Transitions' ...Will God deliver her god sister in this battle of sickness? What happens when it seems like everything changes where a bereavement class on death helps? What happened while attending church was brought back in her life by rekindling her relationship with the Lord?
For Cassietta Jefferson in "Not Forgotten: After The Storm" What will happens after a ectopic pregnancy ruptured? How was this lucky for her to have happened? After some time would there be another 'second dilationa and curettage? ' Why was I so angry with my husband and myself? After another pregnancy...was this to be? What will happen as she began to forgive herself and forms a new relationship with God in learning there is life after miscarriage and peace after the storm?
For Angie Jones in "God Sees What We Cannot See" After surgery [hysterectomy] when thinking all was well only to see I was finally back at the emergency room due to illness 'masses on her pancreas and liver' that needed to be checked out. So, what was happening to her? Was it cancer? Why was this happening to Angie? What lessons came from all of this situation was truly their for Angie?
For Sydney Delatorre in "Hope Exists" A story "an account of how pain hardened my heart against my heavenly Father and the destructive path I chose before returning home to Him." For there exist Hope through his son Jesus."
For Michelle Mills in "Back Down Memory Lane" with her mother was dealing with 'the unpredictable and dreadful diseases: Dementia, Congestive Heart Failure and COPD. How will this change lives around her with the mom being so strong willed and stubbornly set in her ways?" What will happen as life goes on with Michelle's mom and her daughter? Since Plan A didn't work would Plan B work with full blown dementia. Then on to a residential home and not worry so much by the what ifs...now she [Lillie Mae Christopher] is safe even though her mom doesn't know her. What a story!
Wow, is all I can say because these were some wonderfully told inspirational anthologies that will definitely give the reader much for thought long after the read. "Rise from the Ashes is filled with inspiration, wisdom and life’s lessons from women who have endured personal pain and have come through empowered, encouraged and victorious" that I would definitely recommend to all as a good read!
