First and foremost my inspiration for authoring this book came by way of my love for Jesus Christ , my love for my family, my friends, my life experiences, and my love for humanity.
Jesus answered and said onto him, if a man loves me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come onto him, and make our abode with him.
John - 14:23-26
