I learned that the great faith adventures I had read about in the lives of others really can happen for anyone who dares to believe God. By all appearances, I was a seemingly nothing-special individual -- reared-in-dysfunction, emotionally-scarred, and thrice-incarcerated. For all practical purposes, I was a very unlikely candidate for accomplishing much of anything for God, let alone great things. But there was a great faith adventure awaiting me; and there is one awaiting you, as well. May my story be used of God to lead you to intimacy and then identity and then faith and then healing, because that is exactly what God did for me. May it be used to enlarge your vision, causing you to think big, see big, believe big, and stretch big for Him. May it be used to ignite your passion and inspire you to greater love for the nations and a generation.
