March 16, 1997 is the date when my life was drastically changed; everything turned upside down in the world that I knew at the time. A horrible accident left me, a 15-year-old kid, facing a scary possibility of being a paraplegic who would be bound to a wheelchair for the rest of my life.
I didn’t want to hear those words, and was convinced that God had other plans for me, although I must admit, I was not sure what those plans would be.
In reality, no one knows what the next day will bring. While things looked gloomy at that time, something down deep in my spirit convinced me that brighter days were ahead.
At this writing, I live a productive life free of a wheelchair; have a beautiful wife and a young family and travel throughout as a motivational speaker. As I try to piece the entire puzzle together, I’m convinced that there is a purpose for everything. The Bible reminds us that all things work together for good to those who love the Lord. You see, I believe that I am God’s purpose and that He is my purpose.
When you finish reading my story, I believe you will agree.
