I have seen my wife read your books off and on and was wondering what she was reading and often see tears in her eyes. We went to a marriage conference over the Valentine's weekend and it was great and I learned a lot. I told my wife I wanted to read some of your books and she said I needed to read the 9-11 series first. I have never really enjoyed reading I guess I never found the right topic or the right author but God seemed to be pushing me to read your books.
After One Tuesday Morning all I could say was WOW!! Only 20 days after Valentine's I had read the 9-11 series and the first two in the Redemption series. My Mother-in-law has almost all your books but she didn't have Return so I am waiting for the library to hold it for me.
The emotion that you bring to life in the stories you write are almost unbearable. My wife has a habit of reading the last two chapters before she starts and I have to admit about half way through the first I did the same. But then I made a bet with her that I wouldn't on the next one and I made it. However, not without consequence I was about halfway through the second book in the 9-11 series, Beyond Tuesday Morning, and one night I was reading and told her when she went to bed that I was reading a couple more chapters then I would be there. Well hours later lets say 4 am I finished. I just couldn't put it down. I was worthless the next day. Anyway you have brought emotions to my heart I haven't felt in a while and holding back tears has been a common place.
After all that introduction I wanted to say thanks.....thanks for your ministry! I was gradually moving further away from what I was supposed to be as a Husband, a Father, a Leader, and most importantly God's plan for me and my family. We have always prayed as a family before bedtime but my wife and I had stopped praying when we went to bed several years ago (which was my fault). Well I am happy to say that has been renewed and with more passion and determination than before.
I can't wait until I finish all your books and with the current trend I should easily make it before the end of the year. Thank You again and God Bless. - Steve H., Raleigh, NC
