I’ve been working from early morning to late at night for the last four days or so typing furiously on my laptop. To be honest I felt your prayers. God energized me through His Holy Spirit (and several Venti Coffees from Starbuck’s) and I was able to finish two thirds of my book!

As I reflect on the truths that God taught me before I was eighteen years old and how many of these learning experiences were directly tied to some radical chain of events that unfolded in my life, I stand in awe of God’s Sovereignty. While my story is pretty, well, crazy (the book is called Call me Crazy after all) your story is no less signficant. Just know this, God is working through every situation of your young, volatile life to put together something beautiful.

Don’t resist it. Enjoy the ride even if get’s bumpy.

Anyway, here are the chapter titles that I think that I’m going to go with…
