Raising Simba

A Mother-Son Journey of Faith from the Chicago Projects to the Broadway Stage


Raising Simba takes readers on a journey from the dim corners of the South Side of Chicago to the bright lights of Broadway.

The idea of starring as one of the world's most beloved characters on one of the world's biggest stages seems like a far-fetched fantasy. Mom, arts education advocate and fashion designer Falisa Ray made it a reality.

In Raising Simba, readers will discover:

  • Practical parenting guidance on helping creative children discover and tap into their gifts
  • How one woman goes on her own journey of faith, fashion, and fortune
  • Encouraging and motivational insight to lead a life of meaning and purpose

For Falisa Ray and her son Aaron, going from the Chicago projects to Broadway wasn't so much about the fame, but the pursuit of a divinely orchestrated purpose. Throughout her entire life, Ray faced several traumatic experiences and what seemed like insurmountable challenges. From dealing with sexual assault as a teen and enduring toxic family relationships, to escaping spousal abuse and facing devastating failure and evictions, Raising Simba is an empowering story of resilience and beating the odds.

A woman with bold dreams and an indomitable spirit, Ray shows what it takes to make it and see God's promises fulfilled. No matter the challenges and disappointments, she found strength in her faith. Ray's intimate relationship with God combined with a gift of prophetic dreams guided her along the way. At every step, the right people and opportunities reassured her that she and her son were on the right path.

Not only did this determined mother use prayer and hard work to design a better life, she also instilled these principles in her son to help him land the acclaimed role of Simba in Disney's The Lion King-the third longest-running show on Broadway. In Raising Simba, she offers practical advice on nurturing artistic gifts and navigating the wildly unpredictable entertainment industry without sacrificing your integrity. Ray recounts how she invited God to order her steps and built the confidence to fight for her and her son's dreams. In this powerful memoir, you will enjoy heartfelt stories that spotlight the power of unforgettable "God moments," unshakable faith, and undeniable creative gifts.
