About the Book
When a young butterfly decides to take flight, she is met with much opposition because she lives in a world where female butterflies are not allowed to fly. This story is full of inspiration and humor as it brings light to some of the challenges one may face when trying to break a long held, but not necessarily good tradition.
A life-changer, author, inspirational speaker, mentor, and entrepreneur, Arlether Wilson’s story resonates and touches any heart that listens. Growing up in the foster care system, and constantly moving from place to place, Arlether understands the guilt and uncertainty associated with parental abandonment. Approachable and compassionate, Arlether openly shares her story, encouraging others to find their own voices as well so they too can defeat the odds.
Arlether obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Interdisciplinary Studies and a Master’s degree in Behavioral Science from the University of Houston-Clear Lake. After completing her education, Arlether remained in the Texas area, working as a Texas peace officer and standing as a 2014 Doctoral Candidate. Quickly becoming a leader in her profession, Wilson earned her Master Peace Officer certification, the highest honor bestowed upon a Texas peace officer. During her tenure, she became the first female captain in her department and was subsequently honored as “Officer of the Year” in 1998. Certified as a Sexual Assault and Family Violence Investigator, Arlether earned several congressional and senate commendations for coordinating all victim service operations within her department.
The award-winning author of Rewriting the Script, is here to tell her uplifting and motivational story to everyone willing to listen. In congruence with her successes as an author, Arlether has also launched three successful businesses-- MARC Investigations, Jerant Publishing, and AWC Medical Supplies, LLC. Speaking at numerous women and youth organizations, local conferences, schools, and national conventions, she believes it is her duty to pay it forward, happily donating her time and resources to local organizations.
As she continues her journey, she remains on a mission to empower others to rewrite their life’s script and live their lives without limits. She believes that it is easy for so many youth and women to believe that they have to settle for the script that they were born into. This is not true. Everyone is their own screenwriter of their life. As a therapist, life coach and motivational speaker, Arlether encourages others to reject the negative messages received during childhood and to choose a new path and direction for their lives. Firmly standing by the affirmation that we are all unique, she asserts that no one else can fulfill the unique purpose that God has for us and our lives. This is the foundation of the Living Your Life Without Limits Movement.
