Invite God into your lifeI don’t know if you have noticed, but our country – as well as the rest of the world – is having major problems.

It seems like Christians are being hurt, as well as thrown out of some of the countries in the world. In fact Christianity is in trouble in America and as time goes on it’s getting worse. Our families, especially our children, are having more problems as time goes on.

So how do we cope with or even change the direction our families are going?

I truly believe there is only one way and that is allow God back into the country and in our families. Why do I say that? As I said in my book, my life was on the downhill slide to Hell as a child because my parents didn’t care about me or treat me the way they should have. Do I blame them? Yes I do. Parents are supposed to love and care for their children and to raise them to live happy lives.

As my book shares, living a life for Jesus Christ is the best possible way to live. I can say that because I have seen it with my own eyes. My wife Mary introduced me to Jesus before we were married and my life took a tremendous turn for the better. I am now 73 years old and enjoying life to the fullest and am truly grateful to Jesus Christ. Does that mean that bad things don’t happen around me? Certainly not.

Having a relationship with Jesus will help you to avoid the problems that are so prevalent in this country,  and the world as a whole.

Children need and want love from their parents. God has instilled His love into a child’s heart and brain when they are born. If you watch a newborn child, they do things that only God could have instilled in them. Once the child is born, it is of course up to the parents to raise that child.

This is where the problem starts. Parents today are letting things that are going on in the world make some of the decisions for them.

Nobody said that raising children is easy. It isn’t easy, but the rewards of seeing your child grow up and be a positive influence in the world, is marvelous. I have a son and a daughter who proved that for Mary and I. They are doing quite well raising their families and enjoying life to the fullest. They are believers in God and follow Jesus each and every day. Of course they have problems, but like I said earlier, problems exist for Christians every day.

I would like to suggest that you read Matthew Chapter 6 verses 25-34. This passage tells us how God will take care of us if we follow Him. My book was written to share with people that a relationship with Jesus Christ will make your life much better. It is my prayer that each of you give it a try.

May God bless you.
