The Courage to Receive by Jennifer and John FongHave you experienced devastating setbacks? Has the economic recession affected you and your family in challenging ways? Or are you simply looking for a way to have more, do more, be more in your own life?

Introducing The Courage to Receive: Overcoming Devastating Setbacks and Living a Life of Greater Abundance by Jennifer and John Fong.  Now available in paperback and ebook on

The purpose of this book is to share with you a story that may inspire you to be open to more in your own life. Our society is coming out of a terrible economic recession. So many people have lost their jobs, their homes, their life savings. They are hearing “no” after “no.” The loss can be overwhelming, and it can be exceptionally hard to pick up the pieces and start again. But sometimes what we need to do is be open to abundance, to opportunities, to new people and new journeys, in a way that’s different from what we’ve defined in our heads.

In this book, you’ll read the story of Jennifer and John Fong. They started a company with a big dream to save the world, and watched it all come crashing down, wiping out their life savings. What they did next, and how you can use a similar strategy in your own life, is an inspiring story that can help you live a life more abundant than anything you have ever imagined.


What Readers Are Saying

“I found this an intriguing book on a journey through life….overcoming obstacles without sacrificing who you are and who you were meant to be….about finding your true purpose at the current point in your life, and not letting discouragement rob you of your destiny! A great book!”

“I purchased her book as soon as it was released and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s short, concise and to the point. I love the action items, “Do this” in Chapter 6. So often we read things but don’t know how to put them into play. Jennifer really gives “a strategy for overcoming loss and receiving abundance”. The world needs more overcomers and more reaching out for abundance. When this mentality overcomes the “victim” mentality, the world WILL change!”

“Because I have found the content of Jen’s Social Media course so useful, it was easy for me to want to know more of the backstory. It touched on the points everyone experiences in loss, disappointment, and struggle. But the best part was the practical things to do. When we need hope, it is so helpful to have someone say… “Grieve and get moving.” I am also grateful for the length so I could read it in one sitting. Will reference those “Do this next” lists frequently. Worthwhile to read.”
