April has brought the world another jewel that should be held above many others. There is tremendous power in this book. Her story resonates with me because many of us would not have made it to our goals without caring mentors and God being with us every step of the way. Only the strong thrive!

Only the Strong Thrive perfectly illustrates how a person can overcome tremendous hurdles and build the life they deserve. It takes bravery to share the painful low points, and love to inspire others through that honest story. This is a gift from April H. Collins to young people who need encouragement to keep going.
