What readers are saying about this book
I could not put the book down! But, when I eventually did, I couldn’t wait to pick it up again and continue reading. It is an enjoyable, easy-to-read book full of lessons of courage, strength, perseverance, determination, faith, hope, triumphs, and love! Kemi’s unfiltered recount of her journey with sickle cell as a woman and a mum is such a brilliant piece of work. From her childhood to her love stories as an adult- I love every bit of it. This book is a must-read for everyone who knows someone, cares about someone, or has wondered about sickle cell. Kemi bares all the practical details.
But, most importantly, every SS warrior out there should read this book- The solution you need and how to get it is all in the book. HOPE IS HERE! The roadmap to a life free of Sickle Cell pain is here in this practical, real-life encounter of the author.
From the first chapter, this story was very captivating and relatable to the struggles of those with sickle cell. At times it felt like I was reading my own story. Seeing the growth in Kemi from that timid child to the woman that took charge of her health and life was remarkable. This book doesn’t just narrate a story; it educates the readers, open our eyes to the experience of many with the disease. But it also gives us all hope of not just getting cured but also true healing, so we can live life to the fullest and do all the things they told us were never possible, just like Kemi has done.
This book is very impactful and encouraging. It encourages our faith in God. It is a story about fulfilling destiny despite all the challenges encountered. Even though prophecy has been declared over us, it teaches that we have to wage war and run with prophecy, which was demonstrated in the book. I just met a young lady with sickle cell and intended to tell her about your story. Thumbs up to your hubby and sister; I’ve fallen in love with them. Who will not want to serve the God you serve? Well done.
This is one of the most genuine, powerful and inspiring books I have ever read. Raw insights into what it is like living with Sickle Cell as a young child transitioning into a teenager and then a wife and mum, truly inspiring.

‘One Day At A Time’ is an inspiring book of courage and strength. I found myself holding my breath as Kemi relates the intensity of the pain she endured with each crisis and then continues with her life. It’s an amazing story of a woman determined to win no matter the odds.
