I've share my testimony in blog posts, sermons, men's events and one-on-one counseling sessions... it is time for something new.
At the encouragement of my wife and much prayer, I started a new writing project. "My Story of Freedom: Forgiveness and Letting Go" is the story/testimony of how God transformed my life. How does one recover from growing up in an abusive home? This book will chronicle all the life events that Father God used to set me free and help answer that question.
And it's a big question.
Approximately 1.8 million adolescents in the United States have been the victims of sexual assault. These are the reported or discovered ones... each number a person... each one a story of pain. I see such overwhelming stats my heart spins and I wonder if my story will make a difference in theirs. Perhaps if I was a famous athlete, actor, rock star, or politician, my reach would go further... impact more.
But because I am free... I must share His work of freedom.
"God's work is freedom. Freedom is dear to his heart. He wishes to make man's will free, and at the same time wishes it to be pure, majestic, and holy." - E. H. CHAPIN, Living WordsThe cover is a pre-design to just keep me motivated. Please pray for me as I work hard to complete this project and hopefully help others with my story!
I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free. Psalm 119:32 (NIV)
