Shattered but not broken, Shaneé Morgan, shares the raw and uncut story of her journey through childhood trauma, tragedy, resilience, and healing.
This shocking yet powerful memoir recalls the author’s childhood growing-up in 5th Ward Houston, Texas also known as “The Nickel,” in the midst of the crack epidemic. From the crack house to the school house, Shaneé recounts the tragic events that could’ve claimed her life, or the lives of her family if not for the grace and mercy of God. Later, realizing there was a greater purpose for her life, she set out to change the trajectory of the family cycle, by breaking generational curses and strongholds, in an effort to provide herself and her family a better life. Having to confront her past through extensive therapy allowed the author to share her tragic story to inspire and motivate other survivors to believe in their ability to succeed through healing, growth, hard work, dedication, and a desire to be their best selves, despite the tragedies and adversity they may have faced.

Excerpt from "Shaken Yet Here I Stand"
ALL I REMEMBER THINKING WAS, “Finally, we are safe!”
WITH EVERYTHING THAT HAD BEEN going on at the house,
all I wanted to do was get away from there for as long as I could.
“I just wanna go to school!”
“I’m exactly who God called me to be—an example for
others who may have experienced, or who are currently experiencing similar
situations and circumstances. I’m a walking testimony that you can overcome
anything you want if you are willing.”
A WISE PERSON ONCE SAID, “Once a person shows you who
they are, believe them”
“GOD GIVES his toughest battles to his strongest
“I am not a product of my past environment. I am the
result of my decisions.”
“A little therapy never hurt nobody!”
