    In the three week’s since the book’s release, it has garnered positive reviews. Here‘s what some people are saying about Saying Yes to Change.

    Carolyn Rubenstein, author of Perseverance: True Voices of Cancer Survivors:

    Alex Blackwell’s vulnerability and willingness to share deeply personal events are awe-inspiring. It’s impossible not to find pieces of yourself reflected in the stories shared. Through his powerful writing, Blackwell shows you what’s possible if you create change and most importantly, gentle ways to make that change happen.

    Alisa Bowman, author of Project: Happily Ever After:

    If all you only see dead ends, if you only feel stress, if you only hear “should,” “no” and “not good enough,” pick up this book. Saying Yes to Change is a balm for every broken person’s soul. Through essays and stories, Blackwell artfully and transparently gives you a look at his own journey from brokenness to wholeness.

    Dr. Paul Fitzgerald, DMin; President, HeartConnexion Seminars:

    It’s been a delight to share Alex and Mary Beth’s healing journey from their participation in BreakThrough. Alex’s vulnerability about his journey brings credibility to make the book more than theory. Getting and keeping clarity and traction for change is critical and Saying Yes to Change is a wonderful collection of wisdom from many sources to dig in and keep moving forward.

    My husband just bought me a kindle. So we went on Amazon to download a few popular free ebooks to test it out. Your book was one that I chose. I read it in 2 days. Simply Amazing! And such PERFECT timing for me to be reading it. THANK YOU for being vulnerable and sharing your story. I am in the process of reclaiming what was taken from me and as a matter of fact I keep hearing that phrase over and over these last few months. I’m finally ready to live out my God given purpose!! You are right- no matter what you have been through or what mistakes you made in the past there is always hope. There is aways a choice. Starting today!

    • Thank you for reading my book Allegra. I’m glad to hear that you ready to reclaim your life Allegra, the life that belongs only to you! Hope is alive because you breathe life into it! Never underestimate how much you are loved.

  • Living beyond my skin is what I am especially working on right now.  Dealing with negative people in new ways is something I have been challenged to do since the first grade, 59 years ago!  While there’s life, there’s hope–always!

    •  Yes! There’s always hope. Keep your faith strong – always.

    So I was planning to go to bed earlier last night and then I started reading your book – I began enthralled in it and got myself a cup of tea and before you know it – the time was close to 11:30 p.m. and I was not going to stop reading – so I read the whole thing and you have a beautiful testimony that if you really desire change you can be the one to change.  When we change our views, our perspectives, our reality – life changes for us.  The desire has to be there and like the quote states you have to acknowledge that your life needs change.

    God Bless you and MaryBeth and what a beautiful story of LOVE!

    Thank you for sharing with me,

    • Nancy – thank you for trading a little sleep for reading my book. I appreciate your encouragement more than you know.


  • Wonderful! Thank you <3
