Award winning entrepreneur and author Connie Rankin challenges the concept that God is Dead in her stunning tell-all stories of God Gave Us Wings.

Her focus in writing this book is to demonstrate by example–anything is possible if you believe in the power of I AM. While focusing on her core mission to empower others through faith, Connie shares ten true stories from Oprah’s amazing journey to a Wounded Warrior’s heroic battle. Each woman in this book has defined her own word for success, and you can too.

In her new book, Connie provides you with inspirational stories of success from different life experiences to help you see that at any moment, GOD can ultimately change your life, if you believe HE can. All readers, not just women or entrepreneurs, will benefit from Connie’s ability to share the wisdom from various life’s journeys to help you finish strong. As these stories testify, you can fly higher than you ever imagined…if you believe.
