Truth is never a popular concept in any society where mankind lives. Truth is ridiculed and rejected and the bearers of it are often persecuted, even martyred for it. But truth forever stands in the face of all its adversaries. And truth can never and will never be vanquished. For truth has always existed and truth will never end. For, Jesus Christ is the Truth, the Way, and the Life. No man cometh to the Father, but by Him. The poems in this book were inspired by God and are intended to bring glory to His Son, Jesus Christ, while exposing the stark reality of sin and the ravaging effects it is having on mankind. Some of the poems are based on the authors life experiences, while others were created by trying to envision life through the eyes of others. He Set My Spirit Free is the testimony of the authors life changing encounter with Jesus Christ. Mother, I Will Meet You, was written in memory of the authors mother, Winifred Nostrand, who recently passed away in November 2008 at the age of 71. Also, Daddy, My Heart is Broken, was made in sad memory of her father, who passed away in June 1996. The Noble Husband, is dedicated to the authors dear husband, James Lodico. It is the authors heartfelt prayer, that the poems in this book will not only move the hearts of Christian men and women into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ, but that it would convict the unsaved man of his sins so that he would turn to Jesus Christ, the only One who can save him and provide an entrance into heaven. Any direct quotes from the Bible were taken from the King James Version.

Since antiquity, mankind has been searching for God in all the wrong places, which has resulted in a world that is tormented, driven by evil, and out of control. In traveling the globe, the author has witnessed firsthand the misery, squalor, and hopelessness of people who are struggling to find true meaning in their lives. Billions of people are living in darkness and ignorance because they have never known the peace and tranquility of a personal, loving relationship with the Lord, Jesus Christ. The author understands that trying to explain love to someone who has never been in love is not easy. But, with a fervent desire, the author attempts to show nonbelievers the way with the confidence that the Holy Spirit will do the rest.

His assignment from Satan was to kill Pastor Craig Groeschel. Today he sits on the front row of that pastor’s church. For twenty years of his life, Michael Leehan lived and worked for Satan. At age 33, he made a decision to serve the darkness that he felt had consumed his life, but instead of making things easier, it began a steeper downward spiral replete with ritualistic cuttings, blood sacrifices, jail time, job loss, estrangement from his friends and family, and actual murderous assignments from Satan himself. Ascent from Darkness relates Michael’s gripping, real-life encounters, enslavement to the powers of darkness, and miraculous emancipation from the clutches of the Enemy. For anyone who has ever struggled with spiritual warfare, addiction, depression, or hopelessness, Michael’s story is a bold reminder of the redemptive truth of the gospel that anyone—even a soldier of Satan—can be transformed and used for the glory of God. Now a servant of Christ, Michael exhibits the power of God’s relentless love and offers readers the chance to experience their own ascent into God’s glorious light.

When I learned about God and accepted Him as my personal Savior, my life took a 180 degree turn for the better. From a drunkard and a street fighter I became a sincere Christian who loves everybody. God also blessed me with a wonderful wife, and I am so thankful for that. I cannot praise the Lord enough for all the things that He has done for me. With the Lord’s help I was able to overcome the difficulties. I did it and you can do it, too! Just believe in Jesus as your personal Savior, and you will see the positive changes in your life.
