about

This is a story of a young man whose loving mother brought him, and his two sisters, up in a military life style. This is a story shaped by a lonely, transient childhood, a story of absent or abusive father figures, and the folly of youth. This is a story of how God pursues the broken and makes them whole. This, this is my story.
Throughout my early years, my family moved around a lot, which made it hard for me to keep friends. It didn't help that I was shy and never liked school. Though, the latter was likely because I had a hard time learning to read and write.
But, for as long as I can remember, I dreamt of having a wife, and a small family of my own, when I grew up, but my own choices kept that dream from becoming reality.
Somewhere in my early teens, in a 60's era school, I turned into a hippie. Back then, long hair, bellbottom jeans, smoking pot, and ditching school were considered cool, and I did my best to stay in style. My parents had a difficult time with us kids. Mainly because my sisters and I did not even try to be good children. It didn't help that my big sister ran away to get married at 14.
Through drugs, alcohol, and a criminal conviction, I ended up in California, in a church youth group. That's where I met Jay. She was an angel, my angel, and I thought that she was my salvation. She was my license to change who I was, but, instead, I drove the joy from her life and turned her into a devil. We were married for over 30 years, before I had to learn to love her enough to let her be happy; that was the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I lost all will to live and let sin dominate my life. I tried to drown the guilt in alcohol and numb the shame with drugs, but, in the end, God led me to the foot of the cross; that is why this book is called, Finding Jesus.
My battle with alcoholism, and other addictions, almost killed me.
It seemed like I couldn't die to be free, so I needed to find something to take the pain away. Then, maybe, I could live with myself. When you read this book I hope it will show you how to live with God in mind and overcome addiction.
