Faith is not just a Christian word, but a humanistic state of mind. How we choose to live our life, is determined by our environment, those we associate with, and the lessons we have learned from daily life. It becomes our mindset, which determines our response to every event we are confronted with in our daily lives. This book is about life. We are at a cross road, what happens next will determine the culture of future generations. There is a danger lurking in the shadows. A parent believes it to be drugs, alcohol or even a sex offender, but these should be the least of their concerns. These predators are cunning, intelligent and hell bent on destroying the American way of life. We are under attack from two sides, those who want to physically destroy us, and those who want to change the way we think and the American way of life. The Illusions of life are a side effect of being a trusting species. We believe those in positions of authority, those in positions of trust, are looking out for our best interests. The sad truth is, they are not. We stand at the door of change. What will occur during the next few years will determine the America of the future, not just in Christian belief, but an overall shift in the mindset of what it means to be an American. We have come to accept “the end justifies the means”. The misinformation being fed to an unsuspecting world is far from the truth. It is slanted to fit an extremist point of view, be it a religious organization, an institution of higher learning, or even the government!

Born thirteenth to a family of twenty-one children on the plains of northeastern Montana, life has not always been easy. He joined the Marine Corps at seventeen and served in Vietnam. In 1966, following the death of his father, he was Honorably Discharged from the Marine Corps to help his mother raise the six youngest children. Barely old enough to care for himself, he became the provider and care taker of the family . Vietnam took it toll on the young Marine, both physically and physiologically, and eventually rendered him 100% disabled. In 2001, following a destructive decade in his life, he found solace in his faith returning to Montana. For eight years he managed a 4000 acre farm/ranch under the auspices of the Wild Rose Ministry he created in that same year. He referred to those years as his self-imposed exile. For nearly eight years he managed the farm for board & room only accepting no payroll for his work. He spent his time working on the farm, writing and fulfilling a young mans dream of doing music. He recorded several musical CD’s and wrote several books during his free time. In 2009, he returned to the Pacific Northwest where he began research on this book, The Simplicity of Faith. He says, “it was a long walk back to where I started, back to the days of seventeen year old young man”, back to the faith he once had, back to the love, compassion and forgiveness his mother taught him as a young boy. “It was a long journey, but I have finally arrived, to begin again”. His first efforts was the Wild Rose Series, a series of three novels telling the story of Jonas Tower and his love for a his teen sweetheart who had tragically died at age seventeen. The story was based on his real life sweetheart who died in the early spring of 1967. His next effort was the medical based science fiction novel First Earth, “The Genesis Factor”, a story of human evolution, and the beginning of a new species of humankind, a child born who had no biological father. It raised the question, “if the current species of mankind was to die out, who gets to decide what race would survive?” In 2009, he began research on The Simplicity of Faith. It began as a soft approach to faith and salvation. After three rewrites it evolved into a three part understanding of faith, life, and survival. The pursuit of happiness, success and abundant life, the book became a new guide to living, and a fresh new look at Christianity and religion!
