“They’ll never have a meaningful relationship.”
“They’ll dabble with drugs and alcohol.”
“They’ll be lucky to keep a job.”
These are just some of the negative, stereotypical things said about Daddyless Daughters and Sons—those millions of young American women and men who grow up in homes with no father figure. Whether their fathers are jailed, deceased, addicted to drugs or just absent from their everyday lives, these women and men often deal with issues others know little about—everything from low self-esteem to unplanned pregnancies to their own drug abuse.
Tunette Powell could have been one of those statistics, growing up with a father addicted to drugs. Instead she used his weakness to discover her destiny. Tunette beat the odds, went to college and became an award-winning public speaker and nationally-known author.
Now, Tunette, with the help of her mother and co-founder of The Truth Heals, Tulane Holder, are helping Daddyless Daughters and Sons, and the mothers who love them, beat the statistics by empowering them to rewrite their stories in order to go from Daddyless to Destiny!
Together, Tunette and Tulane will show you how to:
ο Own and accept the truth
ο Learn to love the imperfect
ο Know what forgiveness really is
ο Learn to value yourself
ο Find freedom in your story
ο Re-write your ending
ο And much more!
The Other Woman is a bold and emotional memoir based on a sixteen-line rap written by the daughter of an addict.
In this honest portrayal of addiction, Nette loses herself in the stories of her father’s struggles. She vividly recounts his memories of the crack houses and prison cells he once frequented, and openly recalls how that other world stole so many years from Bruce Callis and his family.
Bruce, who began selling drugs when he was fourteen years old, first smoked crack cocaine while selling the drug to an attractive woman in a crack house. In the decades that followed, he traded everything – household goods, the money meant to feed his children – to finance his habit. While Bruce wasn’t watching, Nette grew up. She faced challenges of her own – being molested as a young child and searching for her father’s love in every man she met. But in the process, Nette searches for a way to not only forgive her father, but to understand him.
