BACK COVER: In the pages of "God Touched Me: A Life Radically Changed!" I will share with you my background from childhood onward to the way I was living before the collapse. I will share about my childhood and teen years and the process I committed to and embraced with only one goal: to "be successful"! I will share about my family while growing up including the positive and negative influences in my early life. Then, I will share my worldly accomplishments before the collapse. I think my story will be interesting reading! It will reveal how I started with a very fascinating heritage and became determined to make something of myself that would meet the expectations of a grand heritage even without the benefit of a good education. Those years ended with a very painful collapse! The real story that I have to share with you is how my life changed from self-centered determination to a humble journey of serving others who have experienced suffering and failure similar to me. I will share the path that I followed: a path that does not seem very plausible but one that happened! The most important thing that I hope to remember as I write these pages is that it is not possible for me to take any credit for what has happened. Instead, all the credit goes to God. This book is a firsthand account of God's love and mercy and patience with me: a person who had been completely dedicated to selfishness. It is a story of my rise and fall in a very worldly life of excess and indulgence and the story of how the Lord rescued me at the time of the complete collapse of my worldly life! It is a story of how a life can be transformed instantly by the saving work of Jesus Christ and then dedicated to the ministry of God: to love the hurting and the wounded in spite of challenges and difficulties that were caused by my history of reckless, sinful, selfish living!
