Kevin starts out in his introduction with a powerful statement of: “Society could stand to spend more time shaping up and working out our spiritual muscles.” I was hooked until the last line. How refreshing to see a young Haitian-American male speak not only about his trials, but how his lord and savior brought him through. Kevin’s truth resonated with me in his statement: “Without both parents in the home. Children are only being fed half the truth and their foundations are only half as strong as they need be for them to navigate tempestuous seas of this world. Teach, young brother I hope his story hits all the libraries in all the public schools in every county all over the world.

Mr. Dorival proposes that his novel will be turned into a movie. I see a New York Best Seller list first. Bravo! Outstanding! I pray the courage that our young men in America that are incarcerated are mandated to read this novel and believe for the courage!

Slim “Marvelous”

In my opinion, this is absolutely the best book of the year! I encourage everyone that knows someone who needs INSPIRATION in his or her life to get a copy of this book, The Courage To Believe. @Courage2Believe caught my attention on Twitter and Facebook about his true story and WOW! I couldn’t put the book down because of he’s gripping testimony. I HOPE he produces the movie, seriously! Keep your head up bro – GOD is with you…!


Maria Dorival-Martial “Now I’ve Found Courage To Believe”

This book is a must read. I can see that it can be entertaining and inspirational to a vast audience-men, women, and teens. The book has kept me engaged while teaching life lessons and bringing forth many moments of laughter. I’ve yet to read a book and laugh so hard and so frequently. It holds many true lessons and examples that will make you pause and reevaluate your own life, whether it shows the need for the change or the opportunity to be grateful. I look forward to reading it every night, or whenever I have a moment of spare time.


After 6 Media “Amazing Story of Ambition”

We begin reading about the rich history of Haiti then we are taken on a journey of Kevin Dorival’s life. Amazingly, his story is truthfully told, honestly funny and is relative for the teenage and mature audience. Absolutely fit for the big screen. I would definitely place this in my independent reading section of books or make this a community read for my high school students!! The Courage To Believe is a page-turner!

Tan-Tan “The Courage To Believe”

This book was very good and entertaining from page 1 to the very last page. I read this book in less than two days. It is definitely a MUST READ. I loved how he took us through his life’s circumstances, twists and turns. The good bad and ugly. Reading this story truly inspired me in many ways than one. It inspired me so much that I gave this book to a family member of mines that was facing some of the same situations illustrated in the book. And they were inspired and encouraged. Kevin I’d like to say personally job well done my friend. Keep inspiring others as you’ve inspired me to have the courage to believe. Be blessed.
