DR. MEL'S MESSAGE - From my novels to my other projects, no telling what you will read. This is the only place you will get to read about how I developed a screenplay into a novel and what is the driving force. I will talk about many things from films to books to acting to producing. It really will depend on where my mind takes me. I hope you will join me on this journey.
Today's BOOK OF THE DAY, "A Test of Faith" by Scott Maynard is incredible and uplifting. Have you ever lost faith? Have you experienced obstacles, depression, or a major illness? I know I have. One thing I discovered is that God's love is constant and pure and He, alone, can conquer all. That is why I love this book, it speaks of faith and how we are tested. However, it is a wonderful testimony to unnerving faith. I highly recommend it.
After his father's death and the remarriage of his mother to an abusive, manipulative man, Scott Maynard dealt with his pain through alcohol, delinquent behavior, and excessive partying. Though Scott lost touch with his spiritual side for many years, it never left him completely. His faith would eventually return, helping to carry him through a broken marriage, single fatherhood, an unimaginable injury, and, finally, miraculous healing.
A Test of Faith is not about an extraordinary man who overcomes adversity. It is about an extraordinary God who will guide us through all of our trials . . . if only we will let him.
