Here’s what others have to say about From the Projects to the Boardroom:

The world is starving for LOVE, HOPE, HEALING, ENCOURAGEMENT, and DIRECTION at a time of unrest.  My friend Joe Humphries takes us on a journey in his book From the Projects to The Boardroom, where God guides him from poverty to redemption. Along with a loving, single mother who encourages her son living in the government housing that he can be anything he desires if he puts God first in his life. I have witnessed Joe going into very troubled cities around this nation and making a positive impact by serving others. If you want real-life change, this is the book.

Frank Harrison, Chairman & Chief Executive Officer of Coca-Cola Consolidated, Inc.

If you grew up without a dad, please read this book. Joe Humphries captures so well the devastation that an absentee father brings, and yet he tells us a greater story of redemption. A faithful, hardworking, loving, and praying mom. A mentor he eventually called Dad. And a stranger in the airport who laid bare Joe’s deepest longing. Behind these and other people in Joe’s life stands a God who plucked him from the projects and placed him in the boardroom—and then called him to share that story with you and me. This story of grief and loss, hope and healing puts on radiant display the love and faithfulness of our true Father, who will never leave us or forsake us.

Dr. Russell L. Meek, Adjunct Instructor of Hebrew and Old Testament, Moody Theological and Visiting Professor of Old Testament, William Tennent School of Theology

This is a book you will not be able to put down. What a wonderful story of faith, hope and love. Prepare yourself to shed some tears, but also know there will be moments of joy that will make you want to shout!

Dr. Daniel L. Akin, President of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

This book is a must-read, to truly walk a mile in someone else’s shoes at a time in our nation’s history when we need empathy more than ever before.  Joe Humphries allows his personal story to speak to a subject matter that is so relevant for the times in which we live.  As I consider his book, two words come to mind, authentic and transparent.  Joe allows his story to provide hope and healing to the reader, reminding us that truly all things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to his purpose.

Larry Griffith, CEO of Corporate Chaplains of America

Joe’s life is an amazing journey that started in a single-parent home in a housing project and led to the upper echelons of corporate executive life. Along the way, Joe dealt with much pain and learned many hard lessons that later helped mold his success. He has now dedicated his life to helping others overcome their struggles and achieve more than they could ever imagine. A gifted speaker and storyteller, Joe shares his story in From the Projects to the Boardroom, a book that will encourage and inspire all who read it.

Steve Grissom, Founder/CEO of Church Initiative Publishing Company

I love great stories, especially about a likable underdog. But when you take authentic personal stories about overcoming all odds and you pair them with solid, Biblical application to real life, you have a winning combination! Joe’s blending of storytelling and life-application is life changing. In his book From the Projects to the Boardroom it hits the target and points people to the God he knows so well.

Chris Patton, CEO His Way At Work

Let your heart be encouraged by this story of a Mom’s vision for her child, powered by faith. The practical pearls you will catch from reading Joe’s life story will make every relationship you have richer.

Dr. Charlie Vittitow, Missions Pastor at Southeastern Christian Church, Louisville, KY

Nearly 25 years ago, I met Joe and knew immediately that he was special. He was bold, vocal, and a go-getter. What I did not learn until years later was the motivation behind the man. Joe grew up with a loving mother and an absentee dad who repeatedly broke his heart. What man broke, however, the Master Potter used to construct a Christian giant. From the project to the boardroom, from the football field to the stage, Joe has a story that will inspire, uplift, motivate and cause each of us to reevaluate how effectively we are using our God-given gifts to better this world.

Asa L. Bell, Jr. Principal at The Law Office of Asa L. Bell & Certified Superior Mediator

I had the privilege to coach Joe Humphries who was an outstanding football player and leader on and off the field. He played major roles in helping his high school football team win back-to-back Western 4A Conference Championships during his junior and senior year. From the Projects to the Boardroom is a compelling story about a young man who grew up in government housing and takes you on a journey how lessons learned in athletics played a major role and road map for him to become successful in life and business. Get ready to be inspired, encouraged, and hope for the future.
