Mount Vernon native and first-time author Maxine N. Campbell stopped by the People Before Politics Radio Show, Sunday, May 26th to discuss the release of her upcoming book, ‘Confessions Of A Broken Heart,’ a story of healing through brokenness.

“The book is a true story of where my life was before, during and after being shot while pregnant,” Maxine shares with Black Westchester. “It’s a story of God’s grace, protection, and love for me although I had been broken in so many areas of my life. It’s a story of His miraculous saving power as He saved my son and I from death. We were inches and seconds away from death. A bullet that was supposed to go through my son’s head took a different direction and is lodged to this very day in my back. If it wasn’t for God’s love for me I would have bled to death. I lost everything (job, apartment, confidence, etc). Would have rather died, BUT GOD. Been through hell and back about ten times since then BUT GOD! You name it, I’ve been through it all. The message is to let people know that there is truly nothing impossible for God. And great things happen when we decide to give Him all the broken pieces.”

Maxine N. Campbell is a mother, educator, and most of all a woman servant-leader of God.  She graduated Cum Laude from the City University of New York-Lehman College with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Africana & Africana American Studies.  She was the 2017 recipient of the Jean Harris honors award and scholarship.  She is currently a New York City Teaching Fellow and is a graduate student of the Pace University School of Education. Maxine will be receiving a dual Masters Degree in Childhood Education & Students With Disabilities in the fall of 2019.  Upon graduation, she plans on earning her Doctor of Education degree.  Maxine desires to enhance the current state of the educational system so that people of color can have equal opportunities to those of their peers. She plans to write policies and sit on organizational boards in order to change the current state of the educational culture.  Maxine’s life journey has been and continues to be a true testament of the love, grace, favor, and power of God.
