Protected by Purpose

How the Transformation from Hopelessness and Despair Can Lead to an Extraordinary Life

In her new book, Protected by Purpose, Dorinda Walker reveals her onerous childhood experiences, triumphs and life lessons providing a compelling real-life narrative that validates the power of unconditional love, the process of forgiveness, and embracing faith to not only survive, but to overcome and lead a fulfilling life of purpose.

She outlines how she came to understand that she was worthy of living a life of peace, joy and prosperity, and how she found the courage to put in the work with fortitude to change her circumstances to persevere and become a successful award winning Corporate Executive for a Fortune 50 Company.

What’s most inspiring about her story is the unconditional love and healing she and her mother cultivated despite the odds against them, demonstrating a compelling revelation on the power of forgiveness. The fuel that enabled Dorinda to let go of the shame and disappointment of her past, to rise above and embrace the power she had within.
