My greatest joy in life can be found in the act of blessing others. Perhaps it’s because, for so many years, or maybe decades, I took, rather than gave. Maybe at the age of 53 I’m finally beginning to grow up. Maybe I’m beginning to master the art of life and living. There is much I do not know and never will.

I love giving away free copies of my book, Journey to Redemption, and I was able to do so today at a restaurant. I truly believe that there is something in the book for everyone, regardless of ones background, age, race, faith beliefs or non-beliefs. My goal, with Journey to Redemption is to give away, free, 50,000 copies.
I’ve been asked, several times, in interviews and otherwise what I hope to get from writing the book. And so, there is my answer. I hope…no, I pray that I get to give away 50,000 copies to total strangers. Strangers who may never or seldom wander in to a book store. Strangers who seldom or never go to church.

Strangers who, for whatever reason can’t afford the book but would enjoy a copy.
50,000 copies. One person at a time. One family at a time. Who? How? When? Where? I don’t have the answers but I do have the vision. One day at a time. One book at a time. One human being at a time. The art of life…
