Terri Levine: The Guru of Coaching®
ANITA BRYANT: “Creating a New Normal is an eye opener for the Soul. Sylvia shared life experiences and lessons that can help us regain normalcy in our own lives.”
GAIL RODDY, www.osirisorganization.org: Hi Sylvia, I finished your book on the plane. OUTSTANDING!!! You are a gifted storyteller! I plan to pass the book on to a young sister I know. She will gain tons of inspiration. Thanks so much for sharing.
“MIGUEL”: “I COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN! It was like I was watching a movie…Before I read your book, I've been on my own journey to "create a new normal." I opened up and shared my stories with my wife. But after reading your book, I'm very INSPIRED to help others as well…My 4 years working in the community corrections I've witnessed firsthand the "symptoms" of men that were sexually abused as children: drugs, violence, hostile lifestyles... and their enabling family and loved ones. This information has to get out!!! People need to open up this topic to begin/continue their healing.”
“It's also interesting that you mentioned hypnotherapy because I've been contemplating it for a long time. After hearing your testimony about how it helped you, I now want to research that type of therapy.”
STEPHEN BOOTH: “Ms. Coleman wittingly brings the reader into her world of love, relationships, homelessness, college life and abuse in its many forms, as chaos and crisis become her life’s backdrop. However, this Journey itself IS the true testament to the resilience of this sister and many like her growing up in a “normal” household as she matures and takes her power back!”
DAWN: Hi, I’m Dawn. We met at the book signing at Borders on Germantown Ave; read your book in 3 days, couldn’t put it down!
MICHAEL J. CARR, BSW, FFT: “Reading "Creating a New Normal" was like reliving the author's challenges and victories of living. Each chapter was like standing next to her as she walked me through the pages of her life. I was entertained and inspired by her story of intimate discoveries. I literally felt like I was there with her sharing in her disappointments, happiness and faith. This book is a great read and a great body of work of encouragement.”
MARIO COBB: “It was a very enlightening book telling me the things and struggles that she has overcome in her life. If people haven’t read the book, I think everyone should read the book and get a better insight like I did and it might change their life in the end.”
RAHNDA RIZE: “Creating a New Normal is a refreshing story of hope, healing and faith that will leave one feeling inspired to break the chains of past mental, physical and emotional pain!”
LANETTA BOGAN: “This was really the first book I had every completed reading in one day, the words, knowledge, and wisdom from her life made me say thanks to my family and true friends. Because you really never know where you going enless you have had no place to go. Thanks, Great book!!!!”
MELINDA THOMAS: “Creating a New Normal” is a wonderful real-life, inspiring depiction of the term survival of the fittest. This book has given me so much meaningful awareness and the desire to hug life much tighter.”
EILEEN HOLMAN-HALL, retired healthcare worker & caterer: “Creating a New Normal is a very inspiring book that entails many life lessons. It is a must read, especially for young people!”
GLORIA GAMBLE, college student, Bloomsburg University: “The book tells a touching story that many people can relate to. It will make you want to do better and change your life!”
J. JOANNE YOHANNES, RH, CHT (stroke survivor): “continued success and blessings to you…you are discussing man's greatest fears..his secrets...years ago...many not a few...many were victims of sexual molestation...today you are addressing these issues...this is very long needed...the work you are doing is paramount...this has affected the present conditions of many...the suppression postponed but never released the causes of many issues.”
KELLI SPARROW MICKENS: "Congratulations Sista! You are doing a wondrous work for a problem that is far too pervasive. In all the years that I have been working with youth, sista after sista has revealed her hurt and shame to me. My prayers and best wishes are with you and your organization. I pray that in a generation, there will be far fewer of these stories to tell."
ORLOFF PHILLIPS: “Sylvia has always been a source of strength to me and now I know why. In her book "Creating a New Normal" I discovered the importance and value of my children’s voice and why it's important to protect them. It has inspired me to cherish my home, especially my wife. More importantly, I recognized why many people need this book to help them pull themselves up out of their abusive past and heal. I appreciate my 15 year friendship with Sylvia and I look forward to many more cherished years.”
