About the Book

None of us is guaranteed to live through tomorrow, and there is no secret knowledge on things we can or might do or avoid to make our lives easier or have purpose. Many people in our society who search for meaning in life and find none turn to drugs, alcohol, materialism, or power. Moreover, Islam is growing in popularity among the young and poor of the world, with many turning to the violent side of Islam. Our society and nation is experiencing moral decay with no easy solutions. Those who choose to follow Christ are seeing the beginning of persecution, as society is trying to silence any knowledge of Jesus.

In this book there are several passages from Scripture, along with commentary on each, that we should consider and act upon, as they deal with many of the basic issues of life that we all must face as we go forward in life.

About the Author

This is D. M. Theriot’s first attempt at writing a manuscript. By personality, he is a very quiet person who does a lot of thinking. This was helpful, as was his prayer time and his relationship with God. Furthermore, he received a bachelor of arts degree from a seminary college. Yet he is convinced it was the quiet time and prayer that led to his penning this short work. He has learned from this experience that spending a lot of time in thought may help in writing books, yet it can cause one to miss out on quality time with one’s family. Fortunately, his family has been very supportive in the time to work on this book.

His having been born and raised in the South, which is commonly known as the Bible Belt, has led to many opportunities to experience many different denominational practices at life and worship. He did belong to a non-denominational community for many years, and it really opened his eyes to different ways of worship and living life, specifically the awareness and feeling of a close knit community.
