This book is a poetic journey comprised of mini chapters resembling a modern day Biblical Psalms. Like Psalms, this is a writer’s deepest expressions, sincerest conversations with God and the depiction of hope in Him. Despite the mess ups, there is true repentance, and compassion for us as individuals and moreover as a human race. The Holy Spirit has guided me and God has sustained my life so that I can proclaim His works. Although some may see this as controversial I plead with you to be non judgmental for these are my encounters, stories, accounts, events and thoughts that many experience but are afraid of expressing in fear of being seen as odd. Hopefully as you journey with me you will realize that we are more of the same than different, especially when we recognize that it is all about being led by our Creator. When in doubt I dare you to try Him out! Take the challenge and surrender to that which already lies within you, just turn on that light switch, who I call friend, guide, comforter, vindicator and most of all partner. Put your seatbelt on and embrace my limitless journey with the Holy Spirit!

In the opening pages of this, my book, you will read as to why I took so much. time in deciding to write of my personal dealings with my Lord and Saviour. It began with a seed planted in my heart by my granddaughter Clare, it took two years to germinate then grew into a personal record of Gods unfailing love and His ever open and listening ear. I had not made any notes of my prayers, never dreaming that I would have to recall them in putting pen to paper as it were. I felt compelled to record so many prayers and answers that my readers would be drawn closer to The Saviour of the world; my Lord and Saviour that you might come to Know Him, Love Him, and invite personally into your heart and Life. The Lord Bless you and Keep you.

My Life Story is a powerful and inspiring message that will encourage, enrich any one in an abusive relationship seeking answers. Henrietta Trotter wrote Chapter 1-11 of her autobiography starting from the death of her mother at childbirth she says was Gods first intervention. He saved her twin and herself. It showed Gods Grace and Mercy when she sinned and fell short of His glory before she joined the Ministry. Her mothers name was Grace. Her story showed Gods Grace and Mercy before she accepted her calling. Divine Intervention is divine instructions interceding and organizing your life by allowing you to overcome your fears. Its resilient proof that Love dont Hate and Hate dont Love. Life can be difficult. There always seems to be some obstacle or misfortune trying to offset the good. However, in those times this book wants people not to despair, but to relish Gods love and strength, which this book reinforces. In this book Elder Trotter says, My primary goal is to be used by God. This book reveals her quest for justice; chapter after chapter relates how she was attacked in different areas, but she learned how to withstand the storm that came without warning; this contributes to her success as she never excepted defeat, Trotter says. Jobs secret was not his struggle; we all struggle. It was his endurance. This book introduces Gods power and favor in every line and between every page it reveals His Glory! It confirms the promises made to Abraham that the seed shall be blessed. Elder Trotter wrote. She started writing just weeks after her brutal attack on October 20, 1991, but when she came to herself years later the land of milk and honey unfolded. She added. Writing my life story was a healing process for my deliverance.
John Arthur was born in Illinois and moved to Indiana when he was two years old. His parents chose a small town east of Indianapolis that was the birthplace of James Whitcomb Riley. Perhaps growing up in this historical town had an influence on John that inspired him to express his feelings in poetry. James Whitcomb Rileys poems were often tales of ordinary events like the porch swing in Waitin Fer the Cat to Die, the young woman that helped around the house in Little Orphant Annie and swimming in the creek in The Old Swimmin Hole. Like J. W. Riley, John has written poems that capture the significant events in his life from the day he left the Mid-West for California to the present. He has included a dialog where he describes the events in his life that lead up to the poetry. He also includes a broader vision of what he has learned about himself and others along the way in his pursuit of happiness. He is deeply compelled to share what he has learned in order to encourage his readers to begin their pursuit of happiness earlier in their life, so they have more of their life to enjoy. Life is too short to let the down times keep you down. Read his book and begin your path to happiness.

This memoir records the story of the author's personal journey toward a life of university teaching and probes that story in reflective essays on a variety of subjects. One group of essays has to do with the characteristic activities and institutional setting of a professor. Other essays explore ways of experiencing the world as mysterious, beautiful, and tragic. One piece offers a rather somber account of current ways in which the American experiment in democracy is in peril. Scraps of what looks like an intellectual autobiography are scattered over the pages of the narrative, recalling the puzzles that gave rise to a number of writing projects. In a way this is a book of paradoxes and antitheses. Janus-like, it faces toward the past and the future. It offers generalized convictions and specific observations, treats both the ordinary themes of life experience and tangled esoterica, and presents both the experiences of an individual and an analysis of educational institutions. As a whole, the book invites readers to join the author in thinking about things.
