Be inspired by the incredible life story of Jim Daly, President and CEO of Focus on the Family. See how God took a young man from a shattered family and transformed him into the leader of one of today's most recognized and effective family ministries.
|Format: DRM Free ePub|
Vendor: David C. Cook
Publication Date: 2012
Jim Daly, president and CEO of Focus on the Family, managed to rise above his harrowing childhood, which included living in Compton, a suburb of Los Angeles. In this deeply personal memoir, he relives horrors no child should endure. A bloodcurdling neighborhood murder merely serves as the backdrop to the abuse and alcoholism within the four walls of his own home, a cycle broken only by the cancer that left him motherless. Orphaned at an early age, Jim saw firsthand the worst this world had to offer. He somehow managed to catch enough glimpses of grace that he knew he wanted more, both from himself and from a God he had to believe existed. And from that small spark of grace, a great man emerged.

By: Jim Daly, Bob DeMoss
All I can say is God does have His fingerprint in our lives. Finding Home was definitely a close to home experience. I did not lose my parents at a young age, but I did grow up with a mother that was alcoholic. Jim Daly's life story kept me turning the pages hoping that someone would come to his rescue. I had to keep a box of kleenex close to me. I had to take breaks between chapters to process such pain. I can only say with out giving the book away it is a must read. I did not have a write a review for this book because I purchased this book. I wanted to learn about the man who took the place of Dr. Dobson on Focus on the Family. God really had a hand on this mans life, and He also has a hand in all our lives. We just need to surrender our lives to Him. Long gone are the days of mother's and father's living in one home. Divorce, and Single Parenting has entered into the home. What better man than Jim Daly to take over the position of Focus on the Family. As I read each chapter I found that we shared the same kind of pain. Family is important and in our lives we are given the family we are born to perfect or imperfect, but no matter how bad it gets with God in our lives He turns our pain into a wonderful testimony of His great love and mercy He has for us all. God's fingerprints are all over our lives we just have to take the time to be still and recognize it. Thank you Jim Daly for sharing the story of your life, and how God does make things for good. God Bless.
