PHOENIX– April 7, 2020—In today’s turbulent times, Christian author, speaker and business coach Lorraine Bossé-Smith reminds Americans that “courage isn’t a lack of fear, but rather proceeding ahead despite it.” 

“Wherever you are in life, trials will come. What I can promise you is this:  God is WAY bigger than anything tossed at us. His strength is sufficient.”

In her new book releasing today, Defy Your Diagnosis! Overcome Any Obstacle with the FIT Life Formula, Bossé-Smith offers hope and practical steps for moving forward despite the current challenge as well as many others in life.

“You are braver than you think,” Bossé-Smith says. “God’s spirit lives within us, giving us strength beyond understanding.”

Bossé-Smith shares scriptural encouragement and wisdom drawn from her own shattering life experiences, including triumphing over two devastating medical diagnoses as well as personal losses. Those experiences led her to create tips, tools and strategies for how to face problems in life, not only medical diagnoses but also damaging personal, emotional and professional ones.

While many people are struggling to make sense of this crisis, Bossé-Smith said she wanted to proceed with the long-planned release of her book because of the help she’s seen the principles provide clients in her own practice who feel overwhelmed and beaten down by life’s problems. 

The book weaves her own story into teaching practical principles of her FIT Life Formula: Foundation in Faith, Insights into Self-Improvement, and Tackling the Tough Stuff.

Defy Your Diagnosis FINAL coverOnce again, we are facing yet another difficult time,” Bossé-Smith writes. “I know this is my opportunity to apply my own FIT Life principles and affirm my resolve and renew my faith. My prayer has been to have peace through the storm, keep my eyes up while in the valley, and trust God for our future.”  

A graduate of Regis University, Bossé-Smith holds credentials as a Certified Professional Behavior Analyst (CPBA), Certified Professional Motivators Analyst (CPMA), certified personal trainer and is a NSA professional speaker.

She previously worked in the Christian retail industry as a staff member of Christian Booksellers Association (CBA) Service Corporation and also for Focus on the Family Publishing. Currently her Phoenix-based company, Concept One, offers business, life and fitness coaching, consulting and training, as well as executive recruiting.

Bossé-Smith also writes and speaks on these topics, and has published eight previous books on leadership, communication, stress management, life strategies, and health/fitness. She has also produced training and fitness videos.

Defy Your Diagnosis! Overcome Any Obstacle with the FIT Life Formula [ISBN: 978-1-950892-29-7, $15.99, trade paper], releases today, April 7, from Clovercroft Publishing. The books are available online and from selected bookstores.
