The book chronicles the conversations between Lisa and Mark, who uses a pack of cards to help her deal with the issues she is facing.

About the Author:

Born in England in 1947, Paul trained as a librarian, then worked for two years in Guyana at the National Library as a Voluntary Service Overseas volunteer. During that time, through the ministry of Herbert W. Armstrong, founder of the Worldwide Church of God (now totally transformed and renamed Grace Communion International), Paul surrendered his life to God, and in 1972 entered the church's Ambassador College, graduating in 1975. Later that year he returned to Guyana to work at the National Library, and also to pastor the fledgling church there. When his contract with the National Library expired, he served as full time pastor from 1978 to 1989. He was then transferred to the Caribbean to pastor churches in Grenada, St. Vincent, St. Lucia and Dominica. In 1999 Paul and his Guyanese wife Unita moved to Perth, Western Australia. They have three children: Emil, Lorna and Paul Joseph. For the past several years Paul has been working with children in foster care. He is still involved with the church, and preaches on a regular basis. In his spare time, Paul enjoys gardening or dabbling in amateur radio, model aircraft and various other projects in his shed. Paul's first book, The Rich Hiker's Guide to Walking with God, was published in 2007.
