It has been a while and life has been very full. No other explanation! A couple of weeks ago, a friend invited John and me in for a cup of tea. Well, it was an interesting experience. We waited at … Continue reading →
John is honest and forthcoming about his life and the power of his choices..I highly recommend these seminars to anyone seeking release from their own addiction issues or dealing with someone who is addicted.

This is a great book. It reaches into the desperate worlds of addiction and through relating John’s life experience, tells us how to make right choices and find deliverance!For anyone who has made the poor choice of addiction, there is truly a better way. Read and respond to John’s life story and perhaps you will be helped, or be able to help others who are in the grip ofaddiction.

My prayer is that this book will help the churches begin to address the reality of addiction among its members, whether it is addiction to substances, sex, food or people’s approval, etc. We can no longer keep our head in the sand thinking that our own members do not struggle with various addictions. This book could be the catalyst to helping churches begin to openly discuss those things that enslave us. We cannot fulfill the command to “carry one another’s burden” (Gal.6:2) without bein…

open, honest, candid, testimonial of John s struggle through addiction From the depths of the dark abyss, to heughts of the most glorious mountains, we travel in the hands of GOD. Inspirational. There is hope for all. A light at the end of the tunnel. Thank you John for sharing. What an accomplishment
The author writes in an honest, straightforward, tell-it-like-it-is style. His experiences with drug addiction and finding the way out are what we all need to hear. I highly recommend not only reading this book, but using it in small groups, as each chapter provides thoughtful questions for application.
I am the President of an Addiction Recovery organization. I am always on the lookout for good books on this subject. When someone pointed this book out to me, I purchased it right away. The content is good with John’s real life stories. I have found that you can try to educate people about the harmful effects of addiction and they hear you but it doesn’t have the same effect as when they hear real life stories. I will recommend this book to others.
These seminars have been very helpful in my life. I realized that consistency is a necessary step towards maturity and great character.

Good presentation John and Sally. The smiles on both of you are encouraging and allow people to feel comfortable with you as instructors, which enables people to receive.

In the reality of John’s story, we observe the necessity for sound choices, the consequences of poor choices, and the hope of the best choices in a life set free by the grace and goodness of God.
