This book is not an autobiography but instead is a book filled with life experiences from which the author recognizes the help from the Lord. Along with this adventurous journey through his life, the author interjects inspiration to help the reader be encouraged to view his own personal experiences in a similar way, finding hope and joy.


"From the fullness of His Grace, we have all received one blessing after another."

John 1:16
