1. Tell us about your book:Be Prepared to Meet the Author of Love
Dying to Meet Jesus is about a child in trouble . . . financial stress . . . broken relationships . . . and in the book I try answering the question as to if it possible to find God’s heart when barriers seem to stand in the way?
We all face difficult times when we struggle just to keep looking up. For me, the challenge was extreme: I died. But at that juncture I met God and was restored to a life of joy he had never thought possible.
2. You were an agnostic at some point in your life.
I spent most of his adult years as a devout agnostic. Then one day, after an accident that ended my life, I met the One I had sought to disprove. From that time, though many challenges lay ahead, mysense of emptiness was transformed into genuine joy.
Through my own and many other stories, I demonstrate not only that God is present when we need Him, but that our trials can actually lead us to true intimacy with the One who loves us beyond all measure.
