“At the tender age of 16, I’ve endured so much. I Got My Marbles Back taught me how to overcome any obstacle and to continue to trust God, even during my darkest hours. This book helped me regain my marbles and strengthened me to carry on with life when I wanted to throw in the towel. It provided practical tools to cause me to think about how precious and valuable my life is and how one day I can help change the lives of others through my testimony.”

Cha’Noah Nero, Texas

“There is no pain like losing your babies. I was consumed with grief daily. I sought professional counseling several times with no relief until I met Dr. Tonya. She knew my pain and traveled a similar journey I was faced with. Through her book, I Got My Marbles Back, other writings and consulting, my outlook on life turned to being positive and purposeful. Thank you Dr. Tonya for helping me live, laugh, and love again.”

Promise – A New Book Available Now


As a Daughter of Promise, the assets of your inheritance include the promises of God. Your inheritance is a written decree of scripture, declared by the process of your promise. As a daughter of the King, you’ve not only inherited the promises of God but the power of His decree. Through PROMISE, global women’s devotional, Daughters of Promise from around the world bore witness to the manifestation of their inheritance through healing, deliverance, and transformation. Each author tells their story as it happened yet describes the evidence and experience of the presence of the Holy Spirit. This devotional serves as written documentation and substantiation of how God’s promises have come true through some of life’s most strenuous, obscure, questionable, and unexpected places in their lives. PROMISE takes readers on a journey of breaking through to breaking free. Each devotional carries a breaker anointing, where God’s supernatural power breaks the strongholds of bondage in business, health, ministry, faith, healing, mental health, family, marriage, and other life situations through His steadfast and resolute Word. You are the witness to declare the truth of His decree! Remember, a promise is a promise is a promise.

Griefwork is Essential, Not Optional

A Memoir of Overcoming Grief, Depression, & Rejection

Have you lost a loved one to death, divorce, incarceration, or a break up?

Have you experienced some other devastating trauma in your life such as a global pandemic, rape, molestation, abuse (physical/mental/sexual), domestic violence, rejection, abandonment, or addictions and now you’re the one feeling lost?

Having problems facing your new life after loss, a life you didn’t ask for?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, know that you are not alone and that help is available to you.

In this book, Dr. Cunningham opens a conversation about overcoming grief, depression, and rejection through a memoir of her life transitions. Illuminated by her journey and those of her many clients, this book explores how the gross misconception of grief-work impacts our mental and emotional capacity to thrive in life. She heralds that unresolved grief doesn’t mysteriously disappear. It lays dormant in our inner being, waiting to erupt, oftentimes causing collateral damage.
