About the Book
Walk with me on a journey. A journey that spans the Viet Nam, Korean, and Cold Wars. A journey that experienced Elvis, the Beatles, man walking on the moon, and the opening of McDonald’s and Walmart. I saw the invention of diet soft drinks, bubble wrap, video games, cell phones, PCs, and most importantly, the smiley face.

My journey encompasses a modest childhood, awkward teen years, and a diverse adulthood with peaks and valleys. Shooting BB guns and bows & arrows…at my cousin. Stealing. Swimming in a cold river to retrieve my first deer. Drag racing with a cop. Driving a race car. Dealing with fear. Skydiving. Pickleball. Laugh with me.

An angel blinded my eyes and prevented certain death of my entire family. We struggled through a dark decade of mental illness. What do you say to your brother when you know it is the last time you will see him alive on earth? Despair. Cancer. Death. Cry with me.

Do you believe in God? Do you believe the Creator of the Universe interacts with us on a personal level? Does He lead us? Touch us physically? Mentally? Does He even know who we are? He called me by name, and He walked with me on my journey. After reading my story, I hope you will agree that the answers are “yes.” Praise with me.

“To him who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you before his glorious presence without fault and with great joy—to the only God our Savior be glory, majesty, power and authority, through Jesus Christ our Lord, before all ages, now and forevermore! Amen.” (Jude 23-24)
