I have a podcast here that I did with John Kremer, the marketing guru. He invited me to share unusual places to sell books. Take a listen and hit those streets running:


I have learned some truisms in this last year:

  • Character is uncovered during a storm.
  • Adversity brings opportunity.
  • Testing produces testimony.
  • Everything happens for a reason. Everything happens for us to reason.
  • It takes time to form character. It is like a diamond in the rough. It takes time, pressure, and heat to make the perfect diamond.

I have been tested and put through the heat. God is using my trials and storms to help me build a strong character, which I can use to help others going through similar things.

Never feel that God is punishing you if you face adversity. He is using the circumstances in your life to mold your character into what God wants. He will use your trials and storms to reach out to those who feel abandoned.

I know it is hard to feel the pain and frustrations that come with the trial and storms, but be thankful that they are really going to be working for the good of someone else or yourself.


You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
