Please stay safe and enjoy your Labor Day weekend while enjoying these rebroadcasts. Barb Adams Live returns “live” in 2 weeks.
We all face hardships in life, but for some, one tragedy turns into another before they find meaning and empowerment. Such was the case for Carmen Ashe. In her book, I Have a Purpose, Carmen shares her true story of perseverance through extreme hardship.
Carmen was always a fighter. She fought to escape the control of her dominating father, carried the dark secret of an abusive family member, and was beaten by a boyfriend who would rather have seen her dead than let her go. Carmen knew from early on she was the only one who could save herself. Through one tragedy after another, Carmen is forced to rely on her own inner strength to keep herself and her family from falling apart forever.
Carmen will talk about the lessons she learned from pain and the joy that true love can bring to our lives, no matter what the circumstances may be.
Carmen Ashe lives in Manhattan and owns her own consulting firm. She previously worked as a radiology manager. By sharing her story she hopes she can spread awareness to those who may have lost courage. In addition, Carmen plans on contributing back to the community by donating 10% of the book’s profits to various charities.
