Youll laugh out loud at the embarrassing stories of Luke Lang, a self-proclaimed freak of nature. While youre reading Lukes embarrassing stories, like the time he got beat up by a girl in Karate class or the time he was fighting for his life at Boy Scout camp, youll learn a little about Gods love and grace, and youll be reminded that you were created on purpose, for a purpose.
Luke Lang has spent much of his life standing out and feeling left out. He's a self-proclaimed 'freak of nature' who has spent more than twenty years working with teenagers. Throughout his life, Luke has learned to accept and celebrate his weaknesses as he has come to realize that God can do extraordinary things through extremely ordinary people. He is a cartoonist, a speaker at camps and retreats, and currently volunteers in his church's youth group. Luke is married to Diana, and they live in North Carolina with their daughter Delanie, their two beagles, and Luke's extensive Pez dispenser collection.
