Innovating the War on Depression
Peace in the
Midst of the Storm
New York Best Sellers Award Winner
Anxiety and fear seek to prey on the damaged and create heavy burdens that scar the soul, being heartless and insensitive to the lost, unkempt, and broken-spirited in a troubled, unwholesome world. However, they do not reign for eternity, as faith, resilience, and empowerment remain planted from within to help overcome pressing obstacles, regardless of how difficult they may be. Peace in the Midst of the Storm primarily focuses on the beauty of positivity, selflessness, and honorable confidence that symbolizes the importance of light being present within darkness. This book also holds accountability in facing the realization that as life may prove frustrating at times, giving up is never an option! This shows that regardless of our mistakes, life does not promise us that we will remain positioned in negativity. What we were in our pasts will not seep into who we have grown to be as positive individuals. What we have now realized is that we often must prepare to speak victory over our storms and, as we continue to encourage ourselves to do that, we will overcome anything.
“Sitting across from this individual for the first time, you would think that we knew each other for decades. That’s how much of an impression Kaleb can make on a person, with his words as well as his mentality. Kaleb has solidified his place in this world as a justified pillar amongst the masses. Each page is a golden nugget for one’s application on this journey called life.”
