Judge K.A. Gauff,

Finished your book and my hubby has started it. I couldn’t wait to get in my car last night so I could begin reading. I read in the car, thru the door and in my bed until my eyes betrayed me by closing to sleep. I had completed three quarters of it last night and the rest today. All I can say is it is wonderfully written and has inspired me to a new level in my faith. Thank you so much for revealing the UGLY. God never intended for us to hide what isn’t our shame. I love you and am so grateful for the gift (your book).


Loved it! I started the book on Thursday after a busy getaway. Couldn’t put it down. Truly an authentic and engaging story. So many “little lessons” in the middle of miraculous journeys. An inspirational testimony.


Anyone who reads this book will learn that you can accomplish your dreams and be successful when you put your heart and mind to it. We should not let anything or anyone keep us from achieving our goals in life.

I absolutely love this book, “Courting With Chance” by Judge Gauff as it has reignited a fire within me that had somewhat dwindled. Oftentimes, when people attain a certain level of success, they don’t share their journey and we are left wondering how they got there. They fail to take the opportunity to be an inspiration to others by giving their testimony/sharing their truth. Judge Gauff has done just the opposite in her book because she’s very transparent in sharing her trials, temporary failures, and her perseverance to forge ahead in the face of adversity. In sum, no matter where you are in life, you will appreciate this book. Not only is it a good read, but it inspires you to press on despite life’s challenges.

This was an amazing book. I am amazed at the tragedies she went through and how she overcame all the negatives in her life to become a judge.
