How much of what is important in your life is because of what happened when you were ten? In this heartfelt story, Kalas takes us on a journey through his tenth year and all of the things that influenced his Christian faith and his life. It was during the Great Depression in Iowa that he found his roots. Not only is this a personal story, but Kalas calls upon the reader to reflect and explore their own faith through the example of his own.
Kalas reflects on how his tenth year of life shaped his Christian faith in many significant ways. It was the year he first read the entire Bible and first felt a calling to ministry. He explores such themes as experiencing salvation, hearing God's call, living life with urgency, embracing positive self-worth, and more. (Motivation)
