About the Author

Curtis Rice was born in Shelby, NC. He was raised in Mooresboro, NC. After the death of his mother, at the age of 10, Curtis felt as if there was no hope left for him. Shortly after that, he moved in with his grandparents, but the feelings of hopelessness and bitterness towards the Lord were still heavy on his heart. Curtis was looking for something to fill the void in his life, so he turned to the streets looking for love and anything else, he thought would and could fill that void. And if life had not already been hard enough for this young man, his father was murdered when he was seventeen; his grandmother passed away the same year, and his house burned down in flames the same year. Yet another hit, another event in his life that only added to the feelings of hopelessness. Finally, when Curtis was in the 12th grade, he dropped out of high school and pretty much gave up on life. THEN ONE NIGHT, Curtis came face to face with God and he gave his life to Christ. He started attending Christ for the Nations church in Shelby, NC. Through the love of God and his church family, the teaching of the uncompromised Word of God, things started falling into place for this young man. He found hope, unconditional love and the support he desperately needed to make the necessary changes in his life. He went back to Isothermal Community College and received his High School diploma and is currently attending Oral Roberts University seeking a BA in Church Ministries. He is now married to a wonderful woman, and has three beautiful children. Curtis found what he was looking for, what couldn't be found on the streets, and that was love of Christ. It changed his life and gave him a hope and a future. It has given him confidence and assurance, that he is not alone and that there is nothing he can't do, with the power of God in his life.

One night, Curtis came face to face with God and he gave his life to Christ.

He started attending Christ for the Nations church in Shelby, NC.

Today, Curtis is a Youth Pastor and a traveling Evangelist who wants to let the world know that you can overcome your past. There is hope of a future. He wants people to realize that it doesn't matter where you come from or what you have been through in your life, you have the power to succeed in life. He is a living testimony of the power of God to change a life and he wants everyone to believe that it can happen to them too.

Curtis Rice is very vulnerable in this book of his past filled with wounds. I read this book for a foster child I represent in order to help him through his past neglect and hurt. Curtis Is open and honest and very practical as to how to see God in it all and how to be set free with God's help.
