            When I was asked by the publisher to write all about myself and why I was qualified to write the book I was proposing, of course I gave them all my experience and “the best of times”.  But the truth be known, “the worst of times” in my life were the ones that most qualified me to write the books, articles, songs and poems I have written.  I learned much from the teachers of failure, pressure, betrayal, pain and disappointment.  They taught me to find my strength in Jesus and to dig deep into the Word of God.  They taught me the faithfulness of God and the weakness of man.  They took me places I did not want to go, but caused me to learn as Corrie ten Boom said, “There is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still.”
