Book Excerpts


Something to Shout About!


I Was Ready To End My Life
As I sat in that cold jail cell. . .  I had failed again, “You are a hopeless case,” I told myself.  Childhood memories flooded back.  I felt worthless, I felt dirty.


Losing Touch With Reality
This thing pushed me over the brink.  I began to lose touch with reality and ended up in. . .  I was only 15.  Four months later I was back home, back in school and back into life’s twist and turns with more pain and success. . .


The Beginnings of Hope
But some Christians were praying for me interceding on my behalf. . .  But I came with an attitude of prejudice.  The staff told me I had to develop a personal relationship with Jesus.


Finding God
But I couldn’t see God, or hear Him. . .  He began to clear away the confusion and the hatred. . .  a peace that surpasses all understanding, a love that can go beyond measure, a joy that no man can remove, and hope that is unlimited.


Learning To Like Myself
For a long time I had not been able to look in the mirror and like what I saw.  But God taught me how to tell the truth and experience the freedom that goes with it.


A Life With A Future
Two years later, what a delight to be able to share with them the joyful news that Jesus has the power to change their lives.  I can’t think of anything else I would rather do.
