I share what God has done in my life, and the doors he has opened for me to be used of Him. I also share the struggles we all go through. We are tested and tried on this journey called life. We have spiritual battles, because we are spiritual beings, even though we live in an earthly body. Each of us has battles that are uniquely different. Yet the end results comes down to two choices, either heaven or hell. All through life we have choices, and we must take them seriously. This book is an autobiography that I hope will help you to not make the same decisions which I made. I hope the heart aches we endure in this life will make us stronger, and have the determination to make it through. Paul compares this life as a race of which we must stay the course, never taking eyes off the goal, which is Jesus Christ. I know you will enjoy this book, and hopefully you will finish your race to the very end.
