About the Book

It's a book about hope! It's a book about encouragement and inspiration! It's a book about running the race and finishing strong! Inspired by and Dedicated To is Doug Dial’s latest work, which is overflowing with stories and poetry of inspiration, encouragement, and hope. Thirty-five of the author’s friends and acquaintances are highlighted in this manuscript. Each chapter begins with a brief encounter into the lives of one of Doug's friends. What follows are stories and poems with uplifting, encouraging, and heartfelt messages. The stories and poetry contain a variety of subject matter including peace in the midst of the storm, dealing with grief, faith, hope, love, courage, and a host of other uplifting topics. Doug is related to some of these people. Others are former classmates. Many have mentored and trained him in the Word of God. Several, he has had the privilege of teaching in a church or school setting. Some, he has known for years; others, he has met only recently. All of them, however, hold a very special place in this author's heart. You will laugh. You will cry. You will identify with many of the people, and you will be inspired!
