Transformational speaker and coach Ahmondra McClendon understands what it means to be a woman in transition. Having walked the journeys of drug addiction, domestic violence, divorce, and grief, she knows what it’s like to feel isolated, confused, and overwhelmed – like the rug was suddenly pulled out from underneath.
In The Gift of Transitions: A Tribute to Women, Ahmondra has combined her story of triumph through transition, the real life stories of other women who have overcome unimaginable challenges, and her 7-Step Flight Plan for Life program to give you the inspiration, tools, and strategies to:
Soar to new heights and leave struggle, uncertainty, mediocrity, and chaos behind as you activate your divine imagination and embrace the true essence of Life’s Transitions.
Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.

Although her life is exciting, fulfilling and harmonious today, it wasn’t always. Trapped in a world of drug-addiction, domestic violence, molestation and poverty she existed in a world of fear and uncertainty, a victim of her circumstances. Upon realizing that her circumstances did not have to determine her future, Rev Ahmondra made herself the most important person in her life and transitioned from victim to victory. She learned that caring for one’s self is the greatest gift we can give to others.
Rev Ahmondra believes it is the birthright of every individual to live a life they love and be fulfilled in what they do. She works everyday to fulfill her lifelong dream of creating healthy environments where others can learn to overcome their limitations and reach their highest potential.

“When I approached Amanda, all I knew was that I had an idea for a book. From the very beginning, she supported and guided me. Using her experience and creativity she helped me bring clarity to my ideas and give voice to my vision. Amanda was involved in every aspect of my project from content to branding, cover design, page layout, and editing. I always felt supported and encouraged, and never alone or neglected like so many authors who sign up with other companies.”
