Book Review by Kam Williams

“At the onset of tragedy, I made myself a promise. If God allowed me my footing and gave me the strength to walk on, then I would. Every morning, I had breath and mobility, so I got up… and I journeyed on. However, after 16 years of motion and anguish, I realized that I had reached my breaking point…

Moments later, a phone call altered my course. A woman, whom I did not know, ignited a spark as she spoke words of assurance into my life. ‘God said that He has not forgotten about you. He is going to restore you. But first you must share your story.’ I chose to trust the process.”

— Excerpted from the Introduction (page 1)

Ordinarily, a parent isn’t supposed to bury a child, but God might have made an exception in the case of Tina Marie Fuller. A Bold Perspective: Courage & Empowerment to Take on Life's Adversities, Tina Marie, Rashon D. Fuller, Book ReviewShe was impregnated at the age of 16 by a boy who wasn’t really ready to be a father. In fact, he already had a new girlfriend.

And to add insult to injury, Tina was subjected to the sight of the lovebirds on a daily basis, since they all attended Cleveland Heights high school. Then, while baby Kevin was still a toddler, he was hit by a car when he wandered into traffic while in the custody of a couple of friends of his dad, Mylon.

Tina rushed to the hospital where she was informed by the attending physician that her little boy was not only comatose, but brain-dead to boot. “You are about to witness a miracle!” she responded, convinced that a combination of prayer and faith would work.

But when Kevin passed away anyway, Tina was inconsolable and went into a shock that would last for over a decade and a half. She finally began to heal after meeting and marrying Rashon Fuller, a partner who gave the grief-stricken mom a new
lease on life.

Today, the loving couple embarked on a journey which has led to their sharing a career where they motivate and counsel folks
also facing overwhelming adversity. Together, they have co-authored “A Bold Perspective,”

a combination opus which opens with a moving memoir mostly recounting Tina Marie’s aforementioned ordeal. The second half of the book divides its time between fill-in-the-blanks exercises, spiritual devotions and a health regimen, including a 14-day vegetarian cleansing diet.

A worthwhile self-help tome where a child’s untimely death has ultimately served as the inspiration for his mother’s epiphany.
