How can we find our resolve to persevere despite a difficult health challenge — or several?
Where does our willpower come from, and how does it show up in our lives?
Absolute Will is a powerful, heartfelt, inspirational collaboration by twenty-one women from Canada, the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, the United States of America, Australia, South Africa and Bulgaria.
The authors have linked arms to share their personal, vulnerable, insightful TRUE STORIES of willpower when facing emotional and mental health crises, physical injuries, and disease.
Their stories range from coping with or overcoming chronic fatigue, chronic pain and scary autoimmune disease diagnoses, leaving abusive marriages, and choosing to continue with pregnancy despite a life-limiting / "not compatible with life" diagnosis, to working through PTSD and anxiety from childhood trauma, becoming resilient and purposeful after tragic events including deaths of loved ones, and living with the physical and emotional scars from a lifetime of medical procedures.
This is a remarkable group of strong, warrior women, and their incredibly moving stories are full of life's ups and downs, twists and turns, resiliency and willpower.
These women are sharing their stories to inspire others who are struggling, to show pain can be turned into purpose, and that one's past doesn't need to define one's future.

We are on a mission to make the family bulletproof.
It’s time for regular, every day families, to change the status quo. It’s time for us to take back our power and change our collective futures.
In this book you’ll find the true and inspirational stories of twenty-seven women who chose to take a chance and believe that there could be more to life than what they were living.
These twenty-seven women hail from the United States, Canada, South Africa, and Australia. They represent every profession you can imagine from homeschooling moms, to doctors, nurses, coaches, CEO’s, PHD holders and more… But most importantly, they represent hope.
If you’re tired of living life on repeat, tired of feeling enslaved to corporate America, tired of wondering if this is as good as life is ever going to get, then get ready.
The stories in this book are going to show you that anything is possible and we’ve got the blueprint to prove it.
