About the Book

Working on a doctoral degree can be an insightful, engaging, and inspiring experience—but it can also be difficult. Coursework can demand months—if not years—of your time, deadlines can seem overwhelming, and writing a dissertation can feel like a monumental challenge.

Starting to Finish is designed for anyone who desires to complete their own doctoral journey. If you are early in the process, then you are working through coursework and readying yourself for the experience that lies ahead. If you are already working through the dissertation process, then you may need encouragement, which Starting to Finish is sure to provide. Author Yolanda Stokes, EdD, shares both practical dissertation-writing advice and biblical wisdom that can help you as you embark upon one of the most significant challenges of your life.

“Not unlike building a house, you must do so on solid ground so that as the waves beat vehemently against your house, you can withstand the trials and challenges that await you.”
Matthew 7:24–27 NKJV
