Sierra L. Rainge wears many hats. She is a youth mentor, life coach, motivational speaker, vision activator, entrepreneur, mother, wife and now best-selling author. Her book “Live Limitless: 9 Keys to Unlock Potential, Purpose & Personal Power” is inspiring thousands of readers around the world to recognize resistance, overcome opposition and ultimately uncover life’s purpose. “Live Limitless” takes readers on a journey that encourages them to discover their natural talents, potential and goals. The pages are filled with words that reflect Rainge’s passion for empowering others to pursue their goals and awaken their God-given talents. According to the Orlando native, attending FAMU allowed her to discover her own talents and purpose, and obtain strength from her struggles as a youth. She realized that everything she experienced prepared her to be an example of the limitless possibilities that are available regardless of where you come from or what you’ve been through in life. Rainge lives by her mantra: “We are enlightened when we recognize innate gifts and talents, but we are empowered when we utilize them.” Rainge’s literary works have been featured in national publications such as Black Enterprise, Huffington Post and the Phoenix Business Journal. “Live Limitless” is available at www.amazon.com. 5SIERRA L.

“As Sure as Tomorrow Comes” By Danielle and Christopher Jones

In just a few years of marriage, a couple can go through a range of trials, tribulations and triumphs. “As Sure as Tomorrow Comes” illustrates the power of faith and commitment through the lives of Danielle and Chris Jones as they face obstacle after obstacle – from unemployment and multiple sclerosis diagnoses to the death of their 10-day-old son. Danielle Jones is a graduate of the FAMU School of Journalism & Graphic Communication. And while her husband, Chris Jones, is a graduate of the University of Cincinnati, he shares her passion for FAMU and the opportunities it provides for its graduates to live out their dreams. “As Sure as Tomorrow Comes” represents the courage that Danielle found as a Rattler to face difficulty with persistence and a positive outlook. Through their focus on uplifting and motivating others, the book profoundly touches on how to navigate marriage, family crisis and spirituality with a touch of humor. “As Sure as Tomorrow Comes” is available at www.amazon.com. 58 // FLORIDA A&M UNIVERSITY // A&M MAGAZINE
