Our Book (God, my many mentors, and I), Slaying Life’s Dragons and Beasts: A Practical, Biblical Guide to Overcoming Life’s Pains, Obstacles, and Addictions, is about my struggle to obtain the freedom that Christ died for us to have.

I was praying some time ago about what God wanted me to do as a next step in my life.  I was considering getting my Masters in Biblical Counseling.  However, I felt like God was speaking to me that I should write a book.

I believe that this book is unique and unlike any other book out there.  It is a very real, authentic, practical guide to overcoming many of life’s issues, such as fear, anxiety, depression, drug, alcohol, and porn addiction, self-hatred, un-forgiveness, pride, co-dependency, anger, and etc.

I have been through and overcome many of the above issues.  Rick Warren says that (paraphrased) “The area of our greatest pain is the area of our greatest ministry.”  This is biblical. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 reads:

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.”

My prayer is that this book will be a valuable resource to those who struggle with any life issues.  Moreover, my prayer is that God will use this book to bring hope and healing to many who are trying to keep their head above the raging waters of life, ready to drown at any second, much like I was.


Please pray for this effort.  Also, please join me in getting the word out.  Any help that can be given to assist will be greatly appreciated. Examples include, sharing this on the various social networks including Facebook and Twitter, word of mouth, email, and other creative ways that you may think of.

May God richly bless you.

His Son,
