Car Smasher builds garage

It took me some time to persuade my friend Andy Smith to visit Kenya with me, as I felt his church needed a third world focus as well as the great work he was already doing in the Rohampton Estate, which is one of the larges council estates in Europe.

Andy was a little squeamish about coming with me to Africa, even though some of the storeys he told me concerning the work on the estate made me somewhat careful,… Continue

Splinters On The Carpenter's Floor

Four and Half Star Review by APEX Reviews by Dominique Sessons

Stuck in the midst of a deep, worsening depression, Randolph Alvis prayed fervently to God to release him from his mental and emotional affliction. In turn, God not only heard Randolph's prayers and freed him from his spiritual plight, but He also directed him to record his prayers in written form for the benefit of the countless others worldwide who continue to suffer from depression every day. As a result, SPLINTERS ON… Continue

Wow! What can I say? I'm thrilled to be able to say that in the recent Preditors & Editors Annual Readers Polls, I have been fortunate to have been voted in first place in THREE separate award categories.

Different Colors, Same Fragrance

Different Colors, Same Fragrance

The symbol of Love and Romance, a Rose

Grown with passion, it represents for all

Beauty of a single flower, touches us in any language

Laid on a coffin or presented to a potential love

A gift of little that means so much

Such a powerful symbol of Love

She was the beauty everyone loved to pick

Buds that bloomed to enjoy

The fragrance of her… Continue

The Eye that never Closes

I love watching those TV shows that have hidden cameras that catch criminals or employees on tape doing something they shouldn’t be doing. It is funny to observe the behavior of an individual as they take every precaution not to get caught only to realize that surprise your on candid camera. In the society we live in hardly anything is done in secret especially since the internet has become more prone to gossip than actual information. On any… Continue

How Big Does Your Dream Need to Be?

Many individuals don’t go after their dream because they don’t think they can, should, it’s too small, or “don’t know” what it is. Are any of these holding you back?

Two inspirational videos were emailed to me: one about a dog named Ricochet and one about Rudy Ruettiger, for whom the popular movie Rudy is about. The links are available on the Resources page of my Website, and that link is in my bio. Both are worth a watch, especially if you feel life purpose- or… Continue

Excerpts Of My Books "My Brain Injury" And "To All My Fathers"


My surgery would be scheduled and not delayed because I was in so much pain now. I had forfeited the first doctor and now had a second. The day all seemed normal as planned. I would get in and out and get back to my doggy dog world when it was over. But would I? There were some young guys in there in street clothes that didn’t fit standing around the operating table laughing and making strange gestures towards me. I felt uncomfortable and warning lights… Continue

Storybook Life

Some of the greatest books ever to be written have been autobiographical/ biographical books. The Diary of Anne Frank, The Autobiography of Martin Luther King Jr., Grace Abound to the Chief of Sinners by John Bunyan just to name a few. Autobiographical books are books written about the life of a person by that person and biographical books are books written about a person’s life from another person’s account. Each and every person’s life is an… Continue

Looking for authors!!!!

I was reading through your blogs. I am currently in Buenos Aires starting a new business for the production of audiobooks to be sold throughout Latin America. I am looking for appropriate authors we can translate and record into Spanish. Oddly enough my main interest is still to sell everyone's productions but I have been forced to start producing in order to launch the site because there are still NO audiobooks in Spanish - other than a lot of public domain titles that I am not as interested… Continue
