Her books can be life-changing indeed, if put into practice. Encouraging, uplifting, motivating, and informative, the author includes quotes from famous people whose words/thoughts inspire or challenge our views or perspectives.
Interesting stories/examples from scripture and today inform and reinforce her ideas. (OlympiansVenus and Serena Williams, Usain Boltand also history-makers who proved themselves after failure or being told that it couldnt be done, and more.)
I underline and highlight so many thought gems and affirmations in this authors books. She concludes the book with 33 Daily Declarations and Confessions of Faith (with scripture references) to say twice daily to actively journey to prevail. With these excellent books I advise to read, reflect, repeat. There is so much packed into these wonderful reference guides and encouraging words that I highly recommend. I received this book through TBCN in exchange for an honest review.

Dr. Cindy Trimm has shown in her book Prevail that anyone and everyone can turn their problems into opportunities. She uses a diamond as her example: it becomes a beautiful jewel through immense stress and we can also become beautiful through our problems.
This book is divided into four parts and each division covers an attribute of a diamond. The value of a diamond is determined by its Clarity, Color, Carat and Cut. Dr. Trimm encourages the reader to take stock of his/her problems and then work to change them. If we can determine our true worth and find our life purpose, then all of us can can achieve the goal of removing doubt and finishing well.
Cindy Trimm believes that all of us are "diamonds destined to shine" and through the use of scripture and inspirational quotes, she helps us to work toward achieving our true potential.
Reviewing this book has been especially beneficial to me because my family has recently been dealt problems that have been extremely stressful. This author's encouraging words and helpful instructions have helped me see that these trials are helping me refine my beauty in God's eyes.
Thanks to The Book Club Network for furnishing this complimentary book in exchange for a review based on my honest opinion.

Reviewer: Janice S. Garey
***** 5 Stars
As with previous books I've read by Dr. Trimm, I found this book to be excellent. She gives such a positive message built upon God's truth that you want to read more and more of her writings and thoughts. She never presents a problem without giving a method to proceed to overcome it. She has a talent for getting to the heart of matters and helping or encouraging forward movement to solution by God's standards.
Her books have a wealth of great quotes that make the books worthy of purchase for that aspect alone. At the end of the book she has about two and a half pages of "Daily Declarations and Confessions of Faith" that can be used for at least a month daily to speed up processing positive thoughts and related actions. Dr. Trimm definitely wants to use her influence to help people live their best lives and fulfill God's purpose for their lives.
I thank bookfun.org, the publisher, and the author for giving me this book in exchange for my honest review after reading the book. I highly recommend this book and all others I have read by this worthy author. If you are feeling a little down about life and don't know what to do to get up and going in the right direction, then read this book. You will be on your way to prevailing through life's difficulties when you are prompted by Dr. Trimm to do the next positive move by making sure your thinking fits your best possible life.

Results of the Refining Work of Trials, Set Backs, and Challenges
Best-selling author Cindy Trimm known for her reputation as a catalyst of change uses the metaphor of the diamond in her book Prevail to challenge her readers to Discover Your Strength in Hard Places. She looks at twenty-four facets of life as she guides the reader through: the seasons of lifes struggles, chronic relational issues, life skills, making wise choices, learning through failure, and broadening the capacity, to inspire change.
From chapter one titled Clarify to the final chapter Complete or Finish Well the book is filled with inspiration, motivation, and instruction, on character development, making wise choices, and pursuing Gods best.
I found the challenge to clarify the values I consider as non-negotiable and the chapter on the power of perspective particularly interesting. The daily declarations and confessions of faith provide short powerful reminders of the valuable lessons learned from the book and serve as a resource for ongoing assimilation and application of these powerful principles. Each of these declarations is keyed to a correlating scripture promise or life practice which adds another dimension to these affirmations.
This a book you will want to read, reread, recommend to your peers, and keep an extra copy on hand for impromptu giving or for gifts for special occasions. Highly recommended.
