Throughout 2022, my “view of the world” was filtered through the writing my own life story–a project which was completed in November. In One Small Life, which will come out this year, I gaze at history through a seventy year perspective (1953-2023).
This morning I received the final piece for the book–The Foreword by Leland Paris–which reinforced my thoughts on global events and what God is calling us to do. I will end this piece with Leland’s wise perspective.

On November 17, 2022, I finished a monstrous writing project. It’s my own life story–what used to be called a person’s memoirs or autobiography.
You don’t have to be famous to write about your life. You just need to have some compelling stories, pictures, and ideas that can bring encouragement and hope to others.
I view this book as fifty years of appreciating God’s goodness.

Here is my view of the world in 2021.
