About the Book

“The Word of My Testimony” is a book of poetry chronicling my life from a fledgling Christian to a seasoned soul winner. It is about the challenges of Christianity; the struggle between flesh and spirit. Christianity is an impossible way of life. It can only be done successfully when one is totally focused on Jesus and walks in the power of the Holy Spirit. I’ve known the highs of victories and the lows of defeat. I have known awesome experiences with God. I love adventure and a degree of danger. God got loads of that for the one so inclined. Once one serves God, one becomes addicted to serving God. There is nothing like it. I’d be willing to pay God just to allow me to serve Him. But such is not necessary. I have seen God go after people who the world had totally given up on. There is nothing that is even remotely close to the satisfaction, excitement, intimacy, and sense of accomplishment one experiences when one partners with God. If people, including Christians, really know God,they will see that He will absolutely blow you away with His wonders to behold. God is no old man with a long beard napping on His royal rocking chair. And that’s the goal of this book. To inspire, instruct, and encourage Christians to seek greater intimacy with God. For sure, one can be saved without experiencing intimacy with God. But that’s like having a trillion dollars but only spending one dollar. It is also my goal to inspire the unsaved to discover Jesus, the One who loves them more than anything that He created. The book is really about Jesus' Lordship and guiding Hand in my life. He’s in every word, every rhyme, every praise, and every heartache. Its' about when He chastens His disobedient child. What makes Christianity supernaturally exciting is Jesus. It’s a waste of time to be a Christian and not be intimate with Jesus. its' similar to being married and not experiencing intimacy and excitement with your spouse. It is a tragedy to be a Christian and not serve Jesus in some capacity. Its' like having a trillion dollars and spending just one.

About the Author

I was born on March 23, 1953 in Trenton, New Jersey. I am retired and reside in New Jersey. My parents were Joseph and Doris. I was extremely close with my father who, in my eyes, was a great man. He died when I was ten. I have two sisters, Gwendolyn and Sandra, both of whom I love very much. The single most important person in my life was an aunt named Alice T. Griffin, sister of Joseph. She was the one who suggested that I try my hand at poetry when I was thirteen years old. I never thought of this before even though my mother was a passionate poetess. No human being on earth stands taller in my eyes than my Aunt Alice. Jesus is my passion. I exist for His pleasure and purpose. I am a soul-winner. God has used me to lead approximately 310 souls to Jesus Christ, all one-on-one, spanning three plus decades. Soul winning is my second passion. Poetry is my third.
