About the Author

David was born in Detroit, Michigan. He experienced a childhood of hunger and often wondered where the next meal would come from. That childhood of hunger has given him a real compassion for the homeless who stuggle to find food every day. David & Shana were married in 2008 and share their home with a host of pets and animals.

Is God on Vacation?: One man's mission to feed the homeless I highly recommend this book. It reads fast, I picked it up and couldnt put it down. The first few pages grab you and dont let go. It sounds cliché, but this book made me laugh and cry, it triggered so many different emotions, and in the end I felt super uplifted. If you dont believe in miracles, you just might after reading this one. This story also puts a "face" to the word homeless. I learned a lot about them. What an awesome story. Thank you for sharing it.

After spending the day working at[...], I bought this book written by the founder David Timothy, aka The Soupman.

Parts of this book were like reading my life story. I am in ministry much like David. I'm married, as is David. And as I read the book I learned that like me David has experienced life with a spouse who has Muliple Sclerosis. What I enjoyed about this and what I know is that God is big enough for our questions. Big enough to take our anger when we don't see the picture that He sees.

When called into ministry you can sometimes think life is supposed to be roses, no. Through these struggles of what seems unfair we learn that we are probably being equipped for what is to come. His book reads quick, got it today, finished it today.

I too have questioned God on why me? This is not the plan I had. As you can learn from David's book, there is your plan and there is God's. While you will be very aware of David's faith, this book is never about why you should believe, or that you need to go to church, it's not "preachy". It should be very clear to the reader how God has moved through one man's llife while preparing him to Feed HIS Sheep. Through it all David keep's his faith that it will always work out.

Format: Paperback
I have had the honor to work side by side with the SoupMan and I know firsthand he lives what he writes. He is an inspiration in words as much as in life.

This story tells the history of the SoupMobile and the Christmas Angel Project, but a bigger story is woven with the threads of the SoupMobile's story, the story of a man who learned to "let go, and let God" (a quote from Dr. Wayne Dyers), a man who found his life to be far more beautiful a masterpiece than he could have ever painted had he been the one holding the brush. A journey of fulfilling one's destiny that began one step at a time, each step leading to the next. We can each see ourselves in this story, our struggles carving our path as much as our triumphs. A beautiful book that reads quickly, but leaves an impression that lasts much longer.

Format: Paperback
I'm remarried with a blended family of 4 children and there is little spare time for the luxury of reading, but THIS BOOK IS WORTH THE TIME! I have often pondered how I could be useful to God just being a mom and wife. But as I read how the author evolved from being a loving care taker of his first wife into a honed instrument to sew God's love for the homeless, I felt inspired to just keep dong the next right thing...even if that's just folding the laundry. You will love this book. You will love the result of a humbled man listening to God and doing what he thought was "the next right thing", even if all odds were against him. You really do reap what you sow, and David has created a bounty of hope and love for so many!

Our family has worked with David several times. It was such a blessing to read the background story to this beautiful man and his ministry. David is a minister to us all as we see first hand that God is NOT on vacation. This book reads very easily and will inspire each reader to look within to find that energy we all have to help others, regardless of how hopeless that obstacle may seem in front of us. David lives by his Albert Einstein's quote, "Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile". God has blessed us all with David's focus on the homeless. This book is a gift from David to us all. Thank you, David.

The greatest quality about this book is that when you read it, you feel like you are having a one-on-one conversation with the Soupman. After a long day at work, I picked this book up and suddenly forgot I was tired as I read it in its entirety. David Timothy's life is inspirational. To see his loyalty for fifteen years to his decased wife and his absolute commitment to his calling from God to feed and love the homeless is to see a true saint among us. It is impossible to read this book and then not want to do something for others. I highly recommend this.

My wife and I are new to the Dallas area, recently retired, we decided on volunteering. We joined the SoupMobile and have been spiritually lifted.
"Is God on Vacation?", showed us the commitment of one man's desire to do good for his fellow man. David has opened many doors for the homeless in Dallas, we have experienced David's dream and the love he has for the homeless.
We would recommend this book to anyone interested in volunteering, or anyone that holds the gift of giving.

This is a book about a humble man whom God has now chosen to take care of many, and he joyfully does so each day of his life. He does so based on whom he believes Christ wants him to be. I have fed with David several times and know his heart, and spirit, well. He is a servant who knows how to act without belittling and with much grace. A true friend. Thanks, David for your compassion and vision. RustyIs God on Vacation?: One man's mission to feed the homeless
