    Rick Huntress had his whole life mapped out and perfectly planned. He is climbing the ladder of recognition and success in the business world, has a wonderful wife and two daughters, and is important in his own eyes. But an almost fatal accident leaves his paralyzed and forever condemned to a life in a wheelchair. Will Rick learn the true meaning of a humble and broken spirit before the Lord? Or have his plans for a perfect life truly be gone for good?

    This true life story was eye opening, if not humbling. Here is a man who lost the normal functions of his lower body, but gave God the glory for gaining his soul in return. This brought me to the question in my own life: How far am I willing to go before I am either broken in spirit or lost forever? How many more days will God look down on me and let me continue in my own way? Rick took the worst thing that had ever happened to him, and turned it into good. He is a better father, husband, brother, and son for having experienced what he did. His story should inspire us to never take life for granted, and never expect the breath of life that only God can give.

    This book was provided by the publisher for free in exchange for an honest review.

    I was immediately intrigued by this book, and couldn't wait to read it. At only 122 pgs, it didn't take long, but what a ride! While in the Air Force Reserves, Rick Huntress is training to load cargo on the back of a C-130 when the hydraulics and failed dropping the 2 ton cargo door on his head resulting in a head injury as well as shattering three thoracic vertebrae and severing his spine leaving him paralyzed from the mid-chest down. This is a wonderful, brutally honest book that I would recommend to anyone. Rick does not spare himself one bit in the writing of this book, but takes the opportunity to show you what he was, and then what he became through Christ's intervention and the results of a terrible accident. He went from a prideful, arrogant, do-whatever-it-takes-to-get-where/what-I-want kind of person to an open, loving, kind, giving man ready to serve his family, friends, the man on the street and ultimately, God. Rather than letting his "disability" get him down, he now uses it as a tool to minister to others. He shares how God worked in his life and how the Word of God became precious to him once more. It was such a blessing to find all the verses were from the King James Bible!!

    I gave this book 4 stars instead of 5 due to the length. At times I felt rushed through the story and that it could have been fleshed out more.

    I received this book from Sable Creek Press through BookCrash.com for my honest opinion. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
