Growing up as a preacher's kid (PK) is anything but easy-especially for a boy during the Great Depression when outhouses were plentiful and food was scarce. In scenes reminiscent of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, Bob Haslam's life moved from one adventure to another. With his family living during the Great Depression on food stamps in the offering plate, plus living off the land, assisted by Pound Parties where church families brought in pounds of sugar, flour, etc., they somehow managed to survive. Coming of age under such circumstances was enhanced by moral and spiritual formation fostered by Bob's father and mother. As he grew into his teen years, Bob had a dream career all marked out. But God had other ideas. You will find an amazing correlation between the current economic downturn with millions out of work, and the time the author writes about. Living in the Pacific Northwest where Japanese attacks were expected after Pearl Harbor, Bob gives you facts that were kept secret during World War II and are largely unknown by contemporary Americans. Follow Bob on his bumpy ride as a preacher's kid during one scrape after another, ultimately coming of age as a responsible young man. BIO Bob Haslam has served as a pastor, missionary educator, missions executive, editor of his denominational magazine, book editor, and online mentor for hundreds of writing students. His writing has appeared in 80 publications and 13 books.
