I have just finished reading Under the Overpass. I can not tell you how moved and convicted I was. I am a 63 year old woman. My son told me about this book. One of my concerns as I get older is that I will lack passion for things that matter to God. A lot of my friends seem content to participate in what I call "recliner rot". I am not being judgmental (maybe I am ), but I do not want that for the rest of my years. I do not want to waste whatever time I have left just merely pleasuring myself. Buying more, eating more , traveling more , etc. does not "get it". This book ignited in me the desire to keep on seeking ways to serve others, as a way to honor God and not "waste" my days in pursuit of MORE , BIGGER, AND BETTER. It also reminds me that as the Body of Christ, we really must be out there and not just in our "holy huddles". I have bought several copies of this book to give friends because it is so profound to me. I have referred our church staff to the video on this web site. As you said at the end of the book--"Live Loud,Stand firm, and be strong" ! Thanks so much for your journey and for recording it so we can benefit and be made different because of it.
