"This honest memoir shares the power of persevering through prayer and faith when faced with adversity and struggle. "Overcoming" dives into the life of a patriotic forerunner who help changed the landscape of America in the workplace, military, academia and the church.  Get ready to be inspired and encourages to never give up on your hopes and dreams!

— Dr. Harris T. Travis


I now know all of life’s trials and tests that God allowed me to experience. He also used to mold and shape my faithfulness. The purpose of this book is simply to motivate, inspire and encourage others to never give up on hopes, dreams, and aspirations.  

I view myself as a patriotic forerunner who helped change the landscape of America in the workplace, military, academia and the church. As you read my story, I hope you will too. Some of my life experiences shared here may surprise you, others may anger you, while others humor you. It took years of encouragement from family, friends and colleagues for me to get to this place of sharing my life in written word. I knew I had a story that needed to be told and over the course of years, I literally filled thousands of pieces of paper with my thoughts.

I hope and pray my boo encourages you to:


1. Embrace adversity, disappointment, and setbacks, counting them “all joy” (Jas. 1:2); 


2. Be mindful that "without faith, it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:6); and


3. Know that "all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose"  (Romans 8:28)

Thank You,


Rev. Harris T. Travis
