By: Ava Brown

Stories of resilience, survival, perseverance, tenacity and drive – of people overcoming terrible pain and changing their mindsets to lift themselves from the ashes and inspire others.

Lisa Nichols’ review of Pain to Purpose:

“Our human spirit is unbreakable…it’s unshakeable and it’s unavailable to our circumstance.

It’s unavailable to the challenges in our relationships. Our human spirit is unavailable to the challenges attached to our parents or our children, our human spirit is not focused on where we grew up or how we grew up or our financial conditions.

Our human spirit is simply waiting on a command that says – What is the next great thing that you want to do? Ava’s book from Pain to Purpose exemplifies the power and the strength of our human spirit. She has eloquently compiled a collection of stories of unshakeable souls, unbeatable spirits and extraordinary individuals who remind us of our ability to rise above our no matter what our current situation and to move with grace and ease, or fighting, kicking and scratching whichever way we find necessary until our next best version of ourselves emerges.

Ava is a change agent and a game changer. Her life is a living, breathing example of what is possible when you decide to become resilient, determined and unstoppable.

This book is a great reminder that there are many other souls, brothers and sisters out there like you. That have had to come through something, climb over something, crawl under something or knock something down…to get to their next best version of themselves.

In these pages if you can be only reminded of one thing be reminded that you are not alone.”


Pain to Purpose is an anthology of the devastating journeys of 21 individuals who’ve refused to wear cloaks of victimization but have instead donned robes of victory. The book is a true testament to the innate human spirit of survival; essentially – stories of strength, courage, and heaps of resilience. Each co- author has been through their share of turmoil, tumult, struggles, and hardships, in the form of mental health, rape, incest, financial difficulties, destroyed relational currencies, fear, near death experiences, just to name a few. Despite the harshness of their realities, though, they are standing firmly and doing great things to be the change they want to see in the world. They have refused to stay down and are now traveling the world, sharing healing and shifting thousands. These victors are the definition of tenacity, hope, courage, stamina, and resilience. They have shared their raw stories so as to welcome you into their worlds and assure you that even though you face challenges, you are not alone and you too can be a victor, once you decide to.
