Winning the Game of Life

Hello CSU Students and Alumni,

I am so excited to share with you what I have been working on the last year.

About a year ago, I began the process of writing a book. This is the third book I have written and by far the one I have been most excited about. In my new book, Winning the Game of Life, I tell my life story through lessons I learned growing up.

From being a young girl and watching my parents struggle with money, to playing high school basketball and having to sit on the bench, to my family’s greatest success, the founding of Columbia Southern University, this book explains my entire story.

It has been my lifelong dream to write my life story this way and I hope to share my story with anyone who will listen as I hope to inspire change in their life.

Because you are part of my CSU family, I would love to have the opportunity to share the story of CSU with you. If you are interested in getting my book, head to From now until August 18, the books will be for sale of the discounted price of $7.50.

This school, this book and every single one of you are proof that dreams do come true. I am living my dream and I want each of you to know you can achieve your dreams as well.

    Hi Chantell~

    I just finished reading your book, “I’m Saved; Now What?”
    It brought many similar experiences to mind and inspired me to finish a most recent book I have been attempting to finish.

    Proud of you and the heart you share with others!
    Keep writing!!
