Celebrating Christ is presented through a collection of creative, poetic, and lyrical verses. The creation of Celebrating Christ is the result of a long road to my restoration. Although, I knew I had been saved in Christ after truly turning my face toward him, I felt incomplete because of the hold that negative impacts of my past behaviors had on my life. Along the way, God empowered me to meet the challenges I faced. Through praying, meditating, and journaling, I became grounded in faith as I labored through each obstacle to become a better and more responsible and productive husband, father, and person. For many years, I labored, and I journaled prayers, meditations, and songs, writing Christ and strength into my heart. It took many years for me to battle my way back to fulfilling a victorious life. Looking back, the true joy of this journey is that even though I was not perfect, Jesus was with me and carrying me. He carried me through all my struggles. When I graduated college in 2016, that joy gave birth to Celebrating Christ for my restoration and sense of dignity.
