TGIM Books: Fire Light Fire Bright

Calling for help for wildfireThe small north-central town of Glenwood, Texas is being methodically burned to the ground. Every few days another fire. Acres of scorched pasture, and skeletal remains of the once majestic trees that surrounded the township attest to the skill of the arsonist. Sheriff Dodge Brewster is frustrated by his inability to find even a single shred of evidence.

Several teenage girls in surrounding communities have been brutally raped. When the rapist finally targets Glenwood, the girls are not only raped, but murdered also. Deep in the woods outside of town, a Vietnam vet lives as a hermit. The people of Glenwood accuse him of every misdeed that occurs. The arson, rape and murders are no exception. They are demanding that Dodge arrest the vet, but new evidence in a turn of events point to his own friend.

Will Dodge be able to prove his friend’s innocence? Will he have to arrest him? Or will he go along with the townspeople and arrest the Vietnam vet?

What People Say

“ …this book is amazing. I was in tears on the first page. Completely grateful for the recovery I have today.” 

-Jimmy McGill, Recovery Coordinator at DHS

Peers Pencils & Pages

Sometimes, we need to be reminded that our past doesn’t define our future. Sometimes, we need someone who’ll just listen, or point us in the right direction for natural and community resources. Someone who’s been down the same hell hole as us …and made it out. Peers Pencils & Pages was first developed and successfully piloted as the Writing for the Soul Workshop™ Peer Support Program through a partnership with Texas ReEntry Services. Together, we offered the program as a realistic criminal justice strategy aimed at safely reducing the State’s costly reliance on incarceration– creating stronger families, less taxpayer waste, and safer communities. The Peers Pencils & Pages project empowered those willing to share their story to become a “credible messenger” helping to connect with a peer, connect the peer to recovery and so much more.

Life is a roller coaster for all of us. No matter where you are in life, no matter your age or your station, life has a way of throwing us curve balls. Sometimes, it seems like you are on top of the world, only to have events change suddenly so that you are struggling. Other times, you may be in dire circumstances with no hope, when suddenly, against all odds, a loophole changes your situation for the better. Loopholes is a journey through those times in my life when God showed up in a big way; those circumstances where I should have lost my freedom, or even lost my life because of the decisions I made, where suddenly I was delivered from the worst possible consequences. God’s grace is real. And while we all suffer the ups and downs of life, I hope these stories from my life can show you that God is always working behind the scenes as our Divine Counselor, finding those loop holes we didn’t even dare to hope for.
