Reviews

Transforming pain into power is possible. In 'Pockets of Joy,’ Roxane shows us how to tap into our unlimited potential and how to keep our spirit rising!

—Tavis SmileyTalk Show Host

Pockets of Joy briefly recounts her divorce, her departure from KARE11, focusing largely on the next chapter in her life as a single mom. Rather than belaboring her heartache, Battle emphasizes the lessons she learned in unexpected venues such as the bleachers on which she watched her son play basketball. A deeply spiritual person, Battle counts her belief that things would and could get better among the reasons she was able to move on.

—Caryn SullivanAward-winning columnist, author of Bitter or Better


Pockets of Joy is candid, beautifully written and easy to read. It is Roxane’s story of finding those pockets of joy during an extremely difficult season in her life. Whether you’re a single mom or not, you will find yourself quickly drawn into it, and learning invaluable life lessons along the way.

—Janet ConleyPastor, Cottonwood Church


In this delightfully honest book, we cheer for Roxane as she makes difficult and wise choices--and willingly pays the price professionally—in an effort to forge work-life balance and maintain the God-honoring priorities of being a great parent. Her refreshing example in our success-crazed culture is an inspiration to women and men everywhere!
