Enjoying life to its fullest is the best part of these short stories. Maybe you can enjoy the everyday life I got to have being a city kid. I was coaxed into farm life by a loving husband, children, and grandkids who knew farming in the present sense—something that I had to learn. Being a novice in the midwestern farming state of Iowa (the breadbasket of USA) only meant I had to learn much harder and faster than one who grew into it. Enjoy the mishaps!
I have always loved to write and probably should have pursued a career in writing. This book is written in my own words and my English teacher would probably wonder where she went wrong. This book is about my best friend and hunting buddy. I’m hoping that you will realize the special bond that we had. This book is a collection of some very enjoyable times. I write this to not make fun of my pal, but to tell our story. I hope in reading this book that it will put a grin on your face and maybe remind you of special times with your friends. We all have friends, but best friends are one of a kind and irreplaceable.
This is the true story of an innocent little Amish boy who grew up in southern Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. After running around with the Amish youth and getting involved with drinking, pornography, and drugs, he decided to leave the Amish faith, because he didnt believe the Amish were living by Gods standards. He struggled with addictions for fifteen years and eventually moved away from Lancaster County, finding God and then walking away from God, and going on to live in complete sin. He married a non-Christian woman and soon found himself living in hell on earth. After three years of marriage, his wife decided she was going to kill them both, one way or another. God stepped into his life and freed him through salvation. He discovered a mighty power in the Holy Spirit. God changed his life and wants to do the same in your life. You just have to make a spot for Him in your life. Jesus Christ has a free gift for you, and all you have to do is receive it before it is too late.
