Tag Archives: years off my life
In these last ten years of schooling I needed focus and discipline. I had to take all the energy and all the passion that I poured into using drugs and alcohol prior to the year 2000 and transfer that to doing something positive with my life. Without Transformation Life Center in West Park, NY as my foundation on how to apply focus and discipline through God and His Word, this accomplishment would not have been made possible.
For my family and friends back in Chicago, thank you all for not giving up on me! Thank you all for loving me through this journey. I miss everyone very much, my dad, my brother, my mom who has been on my side from day one, and especially those three handsome nephews of mine.
For my friends in NY, especially those from Davis College, thank you for all the good times we had in that Café! I am humbled that I was given the opportunity, considering my circumstances back in 2003, to go back to school and begin this journey!
For my family in NY, thank you all for love and encouragement through it all. Pete Perri, thank you for being so passionate about editing 75% of all my Doctoral work, especially this manuscript! you should have an honorary Doctorate Degree.
For my cohort from the School of Business and Leadership at Regent University, I want you to know that each and everyone one of you have impacted my life these last 3 years during our DSL program. Thank you for your guidance, for your feedback, for all your encouraging words, the fun times at residencies, all the laughter, and most of all the Godly conversations that I had the privilege of being part of. May God bless each and every one of your endeavors!
For my wonderful and beautiful wife, Angela. Who without her I could not be the man I am today. We met in the first semester of my first year in undergraduate school, in 2003. You saw that I was given an opportunity at starting life all over again. Together these last ten years we have built a life from scratch. I can not have imagined finishing this race without you! I can’t imagine life without you! Thank you for your love, thank you for seeing something in me that very few people saw back then.
My final thought is that anything is possible and nothing is impossible with my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! In Him, today, I am a new person, the old has passed! Today a new chapter in my life begins and I invite you all to be part of this journey called, LIFE!!! God bless you all!
By His grace, George
