David has lived the life he talks about. His journey from having been molested as a young boy, by a trusted family friend, being introduced to alcohol with the resulting slide downhill from a successful salesman until the final unemployed crash and jail time. The warning of the next arrest ending in prison time. David’s long struggle back to sanity and finally how Jesus came into his life to Transform it forever.
How God took him from four divorces and five arrests, with time in a Texas jail, to his opportunities to serve Jesus with the Jesus Video Project of America, work in Washington DC, his visit to the Whitehouse and Congress, even mailing of 10,000 Jesus videos to every senator or house of representative and their key assistant.
The return to Texas, with the tests of faith, through the last arrest, divorce and significant health issues including strokes, heart failure, heart attacks, and seizures. All to destroy what God wanted to do through one man with one plan. To tell as many people about the saving Love of Jesus as possible, before being called home to eternal peace with God. Not to be defeated by Satan, God allowed David to be spared repeatedly.
In time he was given a new, Godly wife, to share ministry and to care for him through two potentially fatal car wrecks and all the health issue. Darlene nursed him back to life in both, physical and emotional health. Always encouraging David with her love and spiritual strength. Praying over him when he had seizures, ever able to calm his mind and spirit, restoring in him the fighting will to overcome.
As the rebirth of ‘American Renewal movement’ grew to a church, David Pastored with Darlene’s faithful help, for 10 years before David retired at age 71. Handing the church Pastorate to a dear friend and his wife. However, God is still blessing. David has finally told his story of God’s transformation from a wasted life to a powerful witness of God’s Grace and love waiting for all of us. By authoring this book, by using internet blogging, social media, and public speaking, David continues reaching the lost for Christ.
The experiences David shares with us, of David and friends introduced along the way, like Bill who showed him the way back to Jesus, Bob, who first believed in him. Bob introduced David to the Jesus video project. Steve, who shares his own testimony of being crushed alive in a pile of trash in the dump, and Mario, who has become a spiritual warrior in his own life, as well as a friend for life.
David has a unique ability to share with the reader the exciting, and sometimes tragic story of how a life can be Transformed, from beyond hope, to victory through Jesus,
David lives in West Texas, with his wife Darlene and their two dogs. They have four adult children, nine grandchildren, and one great-granddaughter.
