Inspired Lives is a compilation of 22 stories showing everyday people finding transformation in trials and struggles.

The struggles are diverse—abuse, neglect, mental illness, deception, disease, death, and other difficulties real people face in real lives. They come from various perspectives from atheism to Christian faith to something else. What ties the stories together is that they end in triumph. Not saccharine “solutions,” but personal transformation that gives the struggle meaning.

This is a book for anyone facing a moment of darkness or needing a bracing dose of inspiration.

“Your painful past does not dictate who you are or what you are capable of,” says Tess Booker. Inspired Lives can show you how to take the next step.


Inspired Lives is a beautiful, authentic collection of real stories of struggle and triumph over some of life’s most common and difficult challenges. If you are looking to connect and learn and be inspired, this is a great read.
