To my mom, Mona Conrad, and my “Nannie,” Catherine McGinnis, for being faithful prayer warriors for me when I was lost and for praying for the rest of the family. All you “prayer warriors” out there, pray without ceasing and never give up on someone!
Thanks to my wife, Vicki Conrad, for being a motivator, supporter. She helped to make this book happen by taking dictation as I told my stories and worked diligently in formatting my book for publishing. A special thank you also to my friend Dan Benson, who helped edit the “vomit edition” before turning our manuscript over to a professional editor. David Ferris was our editor and was very helpful and patient in dealing with me as a first-time book writer.
