First of all, I would like to start out with the scripture in Colossians 2:13-15, “When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having cancelled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.”

Mine is a story of great brokenness and divine healing – the kind of healing that can only come from God above and His Son Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. No one on this planet could fix my life. Not my father, not my mother, not my wife, not my children, not a doctor, not a judge. I mean no one!

You see, we are all born into this world into a set of circumstances that mold us and shape us into the kind of individuals that we ultimately become. That is, until we meet Christ and that changes everything!

I was born in Dauphin County and raised in Lancaster County as the son of a truck driving father and a hairdresser for a mother. I guess trucking took my father all over the country so he was rarely home. I’m sure that was not by choice but by design.

It also played a big part in the breaking up of our family when I was very young and one of the reasons we never really went to church. All I know for sure is that my parents loved me but they had their own brokenness to deal with and it became a very difficult environment to grow up in.

I was kind of caught between the reality of my circumstances and a yearning to know why my life was different from kids who were raised in families that stayed together. (Read Entire story....)
