Peace in the Midst of the Storm
Honorable Mention
2022 Los Angeles Book Festival

Kaleb Thompson

Peace in the Midst of the Storm
serves as a personal testament of becoming anew
through consistent growth and being favored with
great courage. This shows that regardless of our
mistakes, life does not promise us that we will
remain positioned in negativity. What we were in
our pasts will not seep into who we have grown to
be as positive individuals.What we have now
realized is that we often have to prepare to speak
victory over our storms and as we continue to
encourage ourselves to do that, we will overcome
anything.
