I gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which I must stop and look fear in the face. I say to myself, Ive lived through this and I can take the next thing that comes along. --Eleanor Roosevelt The trials, challenges, and lessons of life seem to do one of two things; they either make us or break us. In addition, the way we think on a daily basis plays a major role in how we face the challenges of life and ultimately grow from each of the individual obstacles that come our way. In dealing with setbacks, it is then that our will, determination, and true character are tested at every level. Many questions prevail in such turbulent timesDo we wallow in self pity? or Do we keep pressing on knowing and believing that better days are to come? Do we give up on our faith and simply throw in the towel? of Do we continue to believe that God is working in our lives even when we cant see HIM working? The 19 Cent Millionaire is a story of how an ordinary woman, with the help of family, friends, and even complete strangers, has dealt with and triumphed over difficult circumstances and reveals what she has learned in the process. This book is a story of hope for all who have ever felt lost and alone, abused and forgotten, or thought themselves to be too far gone for a positive change. It is a story of how one woman has learned, grown, and is still growing into the woman she has always wanted to be and the mission she has to help others reach their full potential and obtain Gods ultimate best.

About the author (2011)

Marian Wardlaw was the youngest of 4 children born to Earle and Rebekah Wardlaw from Anderson, SC. She began swimming at the age of 6 and quickly rose to State Champion by the age of 8. Most of her early life was spent in the pool striving for excellence, studying hard in school, and working toward a college scholarship. In 1982, Marian’s dream of earning that college scholarship became a reality. Despite her outward confidence and gregarious personality, however, Marian struggled with her value as a woman and somehow developed a tendency to sell herself short, especially in relationships with men. In those dark times, instead of calling on her upbringing of faith and looking to God for the answers to her most sought after questions, Marian’s gullibility and poor decisions left her life spiraling out of control and nearly shattered her once happy, fairy-tale life. At Marian’s lowest point, with only 19Cents to her name, she questioned how she would ever be able to raise her 3 children in a happy and positive environment. Through sheer determination and the grace of God, Marian finally realized the root of her problem and began the long journey of rediscovering her unshakable spirit that had made her such a great champion in her youth. Marian currently resides with her 3 beautiful children in Georgia. With a newfound sense of freedom and vitality, today Marian is living her dream as a Certified Personal Trainer in her own fitness facility just North of Atlanta and through her Online Consulting Business. Marian coaches and inspires countless women, all over the country, in the areas of weight training, nutrition, positive attitude, and goal setting with the specific purpose to help others recapture their inner strength, confidence, and to live their best life.
