In a word Phenomenal! I didn't really know what to expect upon starting this book, but it leaves me anticipating the next installation from this new author. Raising a Prince Without A King is a quick read that packs a lot of punch. The book follows Ms. Jones amazing life journey of her trials and struggles of raising her two boys alone after an unexpected divorce. What would permanently derail some people, Ms. Jones used to her advantage. Fight until you win resonates with me from her book. Even though my life experience is not that of a single parent, I still found this book helpful and relatable with the authors use of inspiring quotes and scripture to back highlight each chapter. Upon finishing this powerful book, I was telling myself no excuses. If everyone reached back to help someone who was down and out, the world would be a better place. I plan to purchase copies to give as gifts to friends and family that would benefit from this book. I highly recommend it!

I read this book in 2 days. Totally awesome read...I loved the transparency of how she was not afraid to take you into the abyss of her feelings and emotions; her thoughts, her fears, her valleys and her peaks. It was easy to identify with a lot of the struggles that she conquered and what she needed to do to get back to a sense of normalcy for herself and her sons. I totally recommend this book for anybody who may be struggling no only with being a single parent but just dealing with emotions and feelings in general. You won't be disappointed!

LaVeda M. Jones, Founder of (PSM) Professional Services and Mentoring for Single Parents, Nfp™ a global non-profit organization and Author of Raising A Prince Without A King “A Single Mother’s Journey to Victory”.  I am a native of Mobile, Alabama and a longtime resident of the Chicago Metropolitan community. As a divorced parent, I discovered that many single parents are in need of additional resources in order to navigate the complexities of parenting. As a visionary and alacrity to help people embrace their journey was a challenge for me to start my organization PSM. A platform where like-minded single parents around the globe can come together in one place to gather resources, share stories, learn, be mentored and bridge the gap of feeling alone.

As my life goals intertwine with serving the needs to the public, my most important service is my faith and my calling. Many years after my organization PSM was launched God called for me to share more of my gifts to help others, which ignited another journey, writing a book of my experience; Raising a Prince without a King “A Single Mother’s Journey to Victory.” The message I would like to share with you and others is that I was once that women that suffered dashed hope, failure, fear, the absence of peace, the squashing of self-confidence and the abandoning of friends. But through my faith, endurance, and determination to beat the odds, I became that woman that rose from the ashes to becoming a person of strength, faith and courage.
