About the Book

For the last twelve years, I have been working on Through My Father’s Eyes, a book about lessons I learned from my father. I’m very grateful that God gave me parents who set an example, not only for us at home but for the whole world to see. My father taught me about God and His Word. He taught me never to question the truth and authority of God’s Word. God says it—that’s it. No arguing. Not only did he teach me about the Word of God, but he was faithful to follow it in his life. Even if he didn’t understand it all, he still believed it.

I learned from my father how to lead a ministry and the importance of accountability to supporters. I also learned from the generosity he demonstrated to the nurses and caregivers who assisted him at home. These people became like our family. All of us children love them, and Daddy loved them.

The most important thing my father taught me is that Jesus Christ is God’s Son. He took your sins and mine to the cross, shed His blood for our sins, died in our place, and God raised Him to life. He taught me that we needed to preach that message with urgency until Christ returns. That’s exactly what I plan to do.
