Description : Fifteen-year-old Jacob feels almost on the inside: almost smart, almost funny, almost good-looking, almost worthy of falling in love. His sister is too busy dating guys in Whitesnake jackets to notice, and his best friend is occupied with his own painful pubescent crisis. Jacob's mother has just started a curious (and rather un-Christian) holy war with the church across the street, while his father has secretly moved into the garage. Everything changes when Jacob meets Mary. Jacob thinks Mary is the most beautiful girl in the world. If only Mary's father wasn't the minister at the enormous rival church. If only she wasn't dating a youth pastor with pristine white teeth and impeccably trimmed hair. If only Jacob could work up the courage to tell Mary how he feels . . . As the conflict between the churches escalates, a peeping Tom prowls the neighborhood, a bearded lady terrorizes unsuspecting Dairy Queen customers, a beautiful young girl entices Jacob into a carnal romp in a car wash, and the church parishioners prepare their annual re-enactment of Operation Desert Storm. For the Love of Mary is sidesplitting satire with a surprising amount of heart.

Description : I was inspired to write For the Love of Life because of a deep passion of true love within me for people, places, and things. It uncovers the makeup of what true love is really all about. It talks about where its been, what it has to offer, and where its going. It takes the distorted vision of love and transforms it into a clear vision of what true love is really all about. It doesnt exclude the fact that you still have to endure trials, tribulations, sufferings, and hardships but can still be grounded to the thing that has power over anything and everything that you may encounter, which is love. It takes the distorted vision of love and transforms it into a clear vision of true love and ignites the courage and the will to turn your back on darkness to face the light, regardless of whatever you may be going through. The world has taught me how to become a master of what it calls love, and I became very good at it whether I wanted to use it for good or bad, but the love of God shows true love in a world of make-believe. The pictures may change, but the frame will stay the same. Sometimes people paint us a portrait of how they want us to see them, but over time, if it isnt real, the paint starts to fade and true colors show.
