Growing up the seventh of ten children, the author’s faith, lovingly instilled at an early age by Christian parents, buoyed him up through many experiences that nearly ended his life. Many incidents occurred in the pastoral setting of the Pocono Mountains of northeast Pennsylvania where he continues to reside. A widower, he is a father to 4 grown children, grandfather of 7, uncle of 28, granduncle of 37, and great-uncle of 2.
Title by Keith Lawrence
Yea, Though I Walk Through the Valley
One Man's Journeys through the Valley of the shadow of Death
Released: March 2023
Near explosions, bullets whizzing overhead, vehicles skidding out of control!
All of these and more in short story compositions of twenty-six different experiences in the author’s personal life where he found himself “walking through the valley of the shadow of death.” (Psalm 23:4)
Amidst the trials, he could trace the hand of God upon his life for protection. Through each incident, he was able to claim, as the psalmist David did thousands of years ago, “…I will fear no evil, for You are with me.”
It is my heartfelt desire and prayer that each person reading this will “fear no evil” as they trust in God to be with them whether it be the beginning, the middle, or the end of this ‘valley’ journey.
