I told my father before he died that I wanted to die with my integrity and belief in God. Writing this book is honoring that commitment. I told my therapist when he asked how I emerged as who I am that I married Christ when I was seven. But this book is not really going to be focused on my childhood but instead on my adult journey. I worked at Union Station, a homeless shelter, for eight years where I taught anger management. Never in my life have I learned so much or witnessed such acts of heroism and humanity.
