About Becky Davidson

Becky Davidson is the co-Founder and President of Rising Above Ministries. After the unexpected death of her husband Jeff, she assumed the leadership of their shared ministry and honored his memory by shepherding his last book, Common Man, Extraordinary Call, through publication. Becky and her son, Jon Alex, live in Cookeville, Tennessee.

Becky also founded Redefine This Life, “a place where we can meet and talk about how to manage the unexpected challenges of life. It offers a new way of thinking and ‘being’ that gives hope to those seemingly hopeless situations. I have found remarkable power in learning how to redefine the negatives into hopeful possibilities, but there are some steps you must take to make it stick. I have some hard-won truths I want to share with you so that you have a better chance of not just surviving, but thriving.”
