“Impacting the world with something positive and uplifting through my writing is part of my spiritual walk through life.” – Sam Rawlins
Sam Rawlins, being a retired Veteran himself, originally sought to honor all who serve in our military with their sweat, blood and tears. Coming from the turbulent 60’s Vietnam Era, he witnessed firsthand the trauma and the destructive effects of PTSD during his service as a medical specialist in Southeast Asia. His life experiences have shaped this novel as he has also witnessed the devastating destruction of living in Oklahoma and Missouri, known as “Tornado Alley.” His inspiration to write this novel was to inspire others in a positive, uplifting and life-changing way and to help others develop a deeper relationship with the Lord. In his many years of life experience (70 and still counting), he knows full well the value of hard work, believing in God, believing in your God-given destiny and encourages all to find their purpose and calling in life. As this piece became one of an emotional roller coaster for the author, revealing the many dimensions of suffering of those in our military, it is the author’s desire that other’s find God in a powerful and meaningful way. The book is a testament to the healing power of God’s tangible presence and that God’s grace is a factor to healing this illness, one that will bring lasting hope to all.
