Publisher's Summary

Only from the ashes of who we once were, can we rise up to become who we’re meant to be....

There comes a time in each of our lives when everything seems like it’s falling apart - our relationships unravel, our health declines, our finances crumble - and it can be easy to allow these circumstances to define us. When these seemingly insurmountable obstacles arise, we have two choices: to use our circumstances as an excuse to stay stuck or to face our fears and move through them.

In 2008, Adena’s world came crashing down! Her story is one of excruciating heartbreak, severe chronic illness, and financial devastation - a 12-year journey that had her fighting for her life. Since then, she has taken everything she has learned about thriving in the face of adversity and is sharing those lessons with others as a roadmap to recovery and healing. In The Road Back to Me, Adena Sampson reveals nine foundational principles that have helped countless people transform their lives.

In this life-changing book, you’ll discover:

  • How early trauma affects health across a lifetime and how having compassion is key when identifying your childhood wounds, codependent relationships, and failed attempts to fix things
  • How to understand the driving force behind the self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviors that are holding you back, redefine the way you measure success, and adopt new empowering habits and beliefs that will improve your quality of life
  • How to forgive and let go of grief, no matter how someone may have hurt you in the past, and build a stronger sense of rapport, confidence, and trust in yourself and in all your relationships
  • How to uncover your authentic self by rekindling the joy in your life, reigniting your passion, and unlocking your true potential
  • How to build resilience so that you can bounce back with courage, clarity, and purpose
  • How to experience a newfound freedom, bridging the gap between where you are and where you are meant to be - a happier, healthier, more empowered you!

“When you read this book, you will both be inspired and empowered. Adena has captured the essence of what it means to struggle and overcome. Her story will give you hope, and her principles will leave you with the ability to move through whatever is going on in your life. A must-read for anyone who wants to truly thrive!” (Denice Kennedy, DMK Solutions)

Poignant, Powerful, Life Changing

This audio book is gripping, masterfully articulated, and an absolute not to be missed selection! To listen to the author herself recount such inspiring and emotionally affecting stories from her life, combining them with principles we all need to rebuild our brokenness--I listened to the entire book at one time and have reviewed it many times since.

In a world filled with pain, isolation and confusion, Adena Sampson sheds light in the dark corners and backwoods of our life stories. All of us if we have lived long enough will suffer and identify with the wounds the author so powerfully describes. If you are brave, and willing to look into your own life history, this book will provide true hope and a pathway forward from the brokenness of the past. To me, this above all is a book about redemption and the specific steps to find it.

For a small investment and the time taken to listen and reflect, your heart and mine can find the rays of sunshine waiting over the rainbow.

Highest recommendation.

Powerful!

I’ve gotten so many gems of wisdom from this book! These are for me the authentic kinds of wisdom - that comes from someone who has truly experienced and lived through many incredible humbling hardships and suffering. The author Adena Sampson has found a way to turn all these hardships into “small miracles” - and in the book she shares her powerful inspiration, principles and tools for choosing to see gifts in everything - even amongst the pain and tragedy. Highest recommendation!

EMPOWERING - The Heart of it all revealed clearly

I love it when the author reads their own book! Adena communicates with elegance, vulnerability, and warmth from beyond. The book begins with Adena's journey, weaving in personal stories, and family history, shining light on a much larger perspective. This sets the stage for the 9 Principles to unfold. The book opens up and becomes about you and your journey - Sharing insights, wisdom, and tools for you to navigate your own path. The wisdom pieces are simple and clear, making it easy to understand and relate to my own journey/story. I grew as a person, loved it, and Highly Recommend it!
