Have you ever wanted to escape from what seemed like a hopeless accomplishment? Instances in my life added fuel to that kind of thinking and could have devastated me—poor grade-school results, four years of failure in piano lessons, difficulty in memorization, fear of public speaking, and failure to be accepted into a college due to an entrance exam debacle. Consequently, I developed low self-esteem and believed I was worthless and even ugly.
Also I wondered what happens after death or if death is the end. If there is life after death, is there a definitive answer? In my youth I became burdened with the horrible thought, I do not want to die! If burdensome thoughts have entered your mind, and you need a positive outlook, read Born to Serve. You might be amazed at the outcome in my life.
For anyone searching for the meaning of life, you must read Dennis Fox’s book. He found the secret to happiness by finding a life filled with service to Jesus Christ and exemplified life with a commitment to faith. I am far from a born-again Christian, in fact, I am a conservative Roman Catholic, yet I found joy and purpose in his writing. The only other thing, which is important, he did not convey the completeness with which his late wife gave hugs. When Joy hugged you, you knew you were loved with every cell of your body.
