It begins with a dream – a passion. It is nourished by a deep faith, a conviction. The story that unfolds before you is so remarkable is so many different ways. It is not about overcoming one challenge, but multiples of challenges, one after another, and still having an unshakeable faith and love – for one’s dream. All with grace, kindness, and dignity.

All told from the perspective of her best friend, her confidante – her sister. Together, these two sisters are dynamos. They are smart, funny, beautiful, and dedicated to each other. They are a sheer joy to be around.

As a publisher, we know that some of these pages are tough, especially for Dawn, Jessica’s mother, as they recount the moment when she nearly lost her youngest child. We hold that responsibility very closely to our hearts, and we hope we have honoured the sacrifices you, and other mothers have made, when supporting the dreams of their children.

For Jessica and Julie, this is just the beginning, for there are many more stories to share.

For our readers – thank you for supporting their story. We are now in our Fourth Edition of RISE: The Jessica Phoenix Story. We hope you find within these pages the inspiration, faith, and conviction you need to nourish your dreams, your passion (and know that when obstacles do appear, you are heading the right direction!)

For is not about the money.

But it is about the faith.
