Hampton, VA — When Melissa A. Marshall as just 7-years old, her dad was sentenced to prison for murder charges, and she essentially grew up fatherless. Now at 35-years old, she has decided to become a mindset coach to help and empower other fatherless women. Her best-selling book, Mind Over Matter, offers the needed guidance for girls and teens who are growing without a father in their life.
For male prison inmates, there is silent suffering not only for them, but also for their daughters who are outside. The daughters feel a sense of fatherlessness which is as harsh as any prison sentence.
Daughters of prison inmates face challenges that are only now being understood. Around 1 in 3 children in the US grow without a biological father (National Public Radio). Among the youth housed in correctional facilities, 7 out of 10 are from fatherless homes (US Department of Justice). Teen girls growing up without a father are four times more likely to witness pregnancy before turning 20.
The silent epidemic outlined above needs to be addressed, and Melissa’s book Mind Over Matter does the job well. The book tells readers how to free themselves from their internal cell blocks, grab the key that lies within and unlock the doors to the future.
“This book will show you how one decision – the decision to change your mind – has the unlocking power to not only free you, but to change your life. You heal better when you feel better!” says Melissa.
Mind Over Matter also shows that daughters of prison inmates face long-term issues in adult lives that arise out of their sense of self, both in relationships and at work. The book is intended for a wide of range of audience who have been through all kinds of pain. This includes women who have grown with their fathers serving time in prison and those who were raised without a father at all.
Melissa is a nurse by profession, and she uses her knowledge and personal experience of growing up fatherless to empower women of all walks of life to live on purpose. As an empowerment and mindset coach, she has helped women across the globe to both recognize and deal with their daddy issues. Melissa is on a mission to help as many women as she can to free themselves from their mental incarceration by appealing to the principle of ‘mind over matter’.
Melissa Marshall’s new book, Mind Over Matter Book is available on Amazon.
