In this repackage of Finding Home, Jim weaves a host of equally unimaginable stories from his life together with a casual warmth and familiarity that is immediately comfortable and welcoming. Devoid of formulas but filled with biblical insights, Jim treats us to a feast of self-effacing, yet uplifting stories which cover the spectrum of human longings.
Daly doesn't attempt to sugarcoat his personal history. He resists the temptation to dump buckets of "God talk" on the page and refuses to offer a series of neat, religious-sounding solutions designed to "fix" us. Why? Jim knows that God doesn't always choose to move the same way in all situations. At the same time, Jim is convinced that God still moves, and will heal our brokenness.
In the end, Finding Home grabs us by the scruff of the neck and carries us on an amazing journey to the heart of the Father.
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 his deeply personal memoir, he relives horrors no child should endure. A bloodcurdling neighborhood murder merely serves as the backdrop to the abuse and alcolism 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 glimpse 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.
After pursuing careers in sales and international business, Jim Daly became a member of the Focus on the Family team in 1989. Since then he has risen through the company until becoming President and CEO in 2005. He lives with his wife of twenty six years, Jean, and their two sons, in Colorado Springs.
