Where's that school today going the real are you or me but I met there that I began to understand there was some power out there was real called God short story when I was 12 I got busted for breaking and entering and devastated my parents at that time I was hanging around the CYO Catholic youth organization and because they have pretty girl and a lot of fun things and so one time I asked the priest what a become Catholic because every time I asked the girl out.

I know I was now convicted but I didn't want to go forward I remember having a conversation with God thing.

I believe you, but there's too many things I want to do that. I know you not go so maybe later in my life around me surrender meant I was weak and conflicted between the world and God and stand that I think a lot of us understand that it's very inviting and it's it's it's it's very looks very kind and take high happiness because he doesn't bring peace and it only brings you down mean it really back at what point that the market realize you're not coming back your becoming a man of God will work. Another low crop and I kept going with him and I'd come home on number and well worth and what will be in the college 50 meant Karen my wife and I wanted to get married in job again.

God, I believe, open the door for me no intention of going into teaching. I was in premed and what I couldn't get married before I would think so. Lord, you would know more about looking for college I needed to go get a job, get married or gave up the idea of being a doctor and they played for Board of Education needed teachers were heavy in science or math lay all your that was strong breaking point of getting away from the Mafia.

I am not the last. We've all been in that place that pickpocket you know he steals your soul without eating, you knowing I think pickpocket is a good idea if anything, when grace rings when you no longer believe I got causing yet it still wore a door between flying kite and we are that sacred space in which grace will always find we will never lie to see God has never given up on me many times should have done for many others, but he never quits calling out her name and because he is the one only God's grace went every time. Yes.

Also, through much of the code. This was started again. Please let us know suggestion for us so that we can play on the show thrower conduct.

This page of God is a get up continue talking to Dale for Glenn's guy past year and conspiracy of grace as you talked about grace maybe so, tell me your story is amazing. It's great. I thought that it was great. I even escape the Mafia and I gave up their operations to become a doctor and be wealthy and to have all the things that this world has to offer that most of us believe it happiness because he had something bigger to offer you year and it was gone. The Cleveland where I had called nickname Cleveland to be expelled school anyway.

I didn't like not making money on one. I ended up briefly owning and operating a small stand out. Some of them I was still very Mafia so they were glad that man could do certain okay unions were very strong and so I sold every instruction equipment to one fella because he had all the contracts to build new school and so the transition became very successful. Very wealthy sort of the frog in the small and I was a miserable person. I was married and had two kids and no home.

I thought because I'm early. My father later learned was neutral thing you say you know anything bad you're just like your father. Sorry as I woke up one day just like that. I was a terrible father parable married and that's all I wanted more money and I had a breaking point of ball you the happiest I have a beautiful wife. At that time wonderful children and not there was a whole world and cocaine and alcohol and God's grace when I was younger. Your reading a book that your gave me an option to either go to the workout or go to AA no-brainer. This guy will drink so I want to say again were some authentic Christian they are talking about their life and I a bottom when my wife we really needed help and I think that's the first time because I desperately need help start thing okay God here I am, mouth need help. I don't want to lose my family and I would raise seven married over 50 years. That's me less my transformation was fair that was just talking to Bobby about estimation prayer but it's not a prayer it's that you transformed through fire and it's over time, and it's so true because for some people it's a counselor or a friend or something that happened that it's that pivotal point in that in their life to extend their God is always reaching out to us by the by people or by circumstances that get us to learn that it was when he stopped praying everything that I was open to the devil and so for me, praying every day, spending time with God making him part of my everyday was my transformation and everything else can come along reading the Bible you know doing the things you wrote a book tell us about your book will well I am open no matter where you're at. I firmly believe that we should be living our lives have been looking at what part of me is not like asking him how to become more like him. So you looked around me.

I have a thing we may not allow the so II I've always wanted more. No Bible want more, you know the good faith from briefly one of the government.

After I became a path was I became an expert about God, but still have a long way to go to get to know and I think so many times within the Christian world. Pastors may be. Sometimes you just get idea and that's why we need the Holy Spirit. It opens our eyes to choose yes just about done and for Mother's Day. I just want to share nice plan to the mother's happy Mother's Day, including her mother and having cases a mother's love from Helen Rice and mother's love is something that no one can explain its need deep devotion and sacrifice and pain. It is endless and unselfish and enduring, let me but nothing can destroy it or take away is patient and forgiving when others are forsaking and it never feels or falters even tell, the heart is breaking it beliefs beyond leaking when the rolled around, contends and enclose with all the beauty of the rarest brightest chance is far beyond define.

It defies explanation, and it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation in many splintered miracle man cannot understand and another wondrous evidence of God's tender writing Dale. Would you like to close us in prayer. Thank you for this opportunity. In my mind you here with that word you all of our fellow not be wise in our own.

We acknowledge you and all of our ways. You will have the first time you know, not our own thing. Lord help everybody that helped her to understand that you're there you love unconditionally.
