We All Need To Start Somewhere.

Sometimes It Happens When We Hit Rock Bottom.

The Pivotal Moment is the true story of a man who inspired millions around the world. From a viral video highlighting the transformation of abandoned lots after Hurricane Katrina, the man behind the mission was David Young, who dedicated his life to building urban farms and a life-saving ministry to save the teens in jail.

Fascinated with David's story, Kristle Bautista embarked on a journey to uncover his biggest motivation and greatest lessons. She learned he was previously a Chief of Police in Indiana, having dealt with crime at its highest level. To save the youth in the Lower Ninth Ward, one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in New Orleans, David turned in his badge and sold all his possessions to help this community who needed him most. His mission quickly went global with visitors flying in to see him from all over the world, and this book was written so you can meet him too.

After reading The Pivotal Moment, readers will be encouraged to:

· Take unstoppable action towards causes that positively impact others

· Be encouraged to bravely take the plunge towards fulfillment in their lives

· Embrace each opportunity, both good and bad as learning opportunities for growth

Bet on the person you can become. Believe in the grandest version of your life, no matter what the circumstances are. Like David, the right people will step forward if you believe and are willing to take action.
