About the Book

Have you ever been stuck to the point of paralysis, where moving just seems to be almost impossible? In Give Me a Year, author Dr. Donetrus G. Hill presents a tool to redefine what’s possible and remove barriers in the face of opportunity.
He offers a refreshingly honest depiction of how life’s perils are designed to build character and strength. Hill encourages, empowers, and energizes you through knowledge, faith, and testimony, providing guidance to rediscovery and self-realization.
Give Me a Year implores you to follow your dreams, go for your goals, and be bold and consistent in your quest to accomplish the most outlandish of aspirations. It encourages you to live out loud and embrace the things about you that make you, you. Don’t give up on your life, marriage, relationship, children, family, career, degree, ministry, weight-loss goals, writing a book, starting a business, or buying a house.
Praise for Give Me a Year
We are not invincible. We all need balanced, emotional construction, whether temporary or constant. Dr. Donetrus Hill infuses Scripture with his personal narrative to give us strong building blocks for life in Give Me a Year. Opening his own wounds to mirror our own, Hill lets us know that with God’s grace, not giving up on yourself, and learning to love and live is an open road we can all travel. His words bring humor and powerful transparency. It’s a read that has your name on every sentence.
