Salt Lake City, UT, June 09, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- A book of hope and miracles is available. Read the story of a man that faced an almost insurmountable set of obstacles from the beginning of his life. From the moment his mother learned of her pregnancy she sought to escape her life through alcohol and drugs. After three years she abandoned her son to live with his drug addled father. Over the next twelve years the boy was raised in a nightmare created by his father. The family home was reduced to a flop house for felons and societal miscreants that abused and subjected the boy to a constant barrage of vile acts and destructive behaviors. He survived shootings, drug deals, abuse and neglect until his father died. It seemed that he was doomed to repeat the life that he had been subjected to for so many years but he discovered a way out.
Soul Survivor includes an accounting of the events that took place in his hellish childhood home, how he reacted to the influences and what long term effects were made manifest in his life. The author explains that through the power of choice and because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ he was able to escape the life that his father had assigned to him. The author provides hope for people that are dealing with the impact of childhood traumas and provides help to those that are in pain.
From the book, “We are the people that we choose to be.” With that simple expression James Ballou made a change in his life and created a future that finds him today in the midst of a loving family and a thriving career. Many have asked “But how is that possible?” Read the book and witness the miracle for yourself.
