Success Begins Within

How does a little girl who was physically, sexually and emotionally abused for seven years of her childhood go on to attain personal and professional success as an adult when the trauma of her past SHOULD have voided her future?

One answer: Jesus. 

The only thing stronger than the power of trauma is the power we reclaim when we acknowledge its affect on us.

Success Begins Within

Trauma changes us. It changes the way we show up in the world. It changes the way we view ourselves. In Success from the Inside Out, Nona Jones shares how an outward appearance of success can often mask inward feelings of insecurity, inadequacy and pain. In sharing her heart-wrenching story of repeated childhood abuse, Nona provides readers with a glimpse behind the curtain of what appears to be a charmed-life.

She was a corporate executive by the age of twenty-three, a sought after speaker and minister of the gospel, recognized by leading publications as an influential woman to watch, and wife of a devoted husband, but many nights she would return to her well-appointed hotel room and feel empty, confused and alone despite her success.

 

It was only through a revelation from God that she began to build an identity that wasn’t based on the approval of man. An identity that wasn’t tinged with the stains of her past abuse. An identity that no longer needed the trappings of success that left her feeling… trapped. Through faith and hard work, she learned how to rise from her past into a fulfilling future. And she will share what she has learned with you.

Even when uncertainty is the only thing you’re certain of, there is hope and an opportunity to thrive through God.
