This book is long overdue! Bill has been a friend and encourager to me for years, and his story is a true testament to what God can do in your life, from wherever you start. Each chapter will challenge and raise your faith, which is what you want a book to do. Make a Break for It delivers!

In today’s world, with all the challenges we face, Bill’s words of wisdom and encouragement on how to live your life are very inspirational. Live your life for God, being good to others . . . this book is right on the mark. (Bill Jordan, CEO, President and Founder of Jordan Outdoor Enterprises and Realtree Camouflage)
I have had the privilege of having a friendship that spans thirty years with Dr. Bill Purvis, so it gives me great joy to recommend his book, Make a Break for It. Bill goes into great detail to tell you how he broke away from a lifestyle that appealed to his lowest and least and how he responded to a new lifestyle that has brought him to his highest and best. This is the type of book that can help transform a person’s life not only on this earth, but for all of eternity. If I had a friend who needed to turn his life around, this is the book that I would recommend. My advice to you is to “make a break for it” and get to your local bookstore as soon as possible! (Dr. Dwight “Ike” Reighard, Senior Pastor, Piedmont Church)
Bill will remind you of the often overlooked yet powerful ability that God has given us: the power to choose! Choosing to live your life intentionally and purposefully is one of the most important decisions you can make. Bill is living proof of that, and his testimony inspires hope while his words ignite passion to continually pursue God’s plan for your life. No matter what trails behind you from yesterday or lies in front of you today, you can, “make a break for it”, and watch God truly bless your future! (Chasity Hardman Smith, Miss Georgia 2008 and First Runner-up, Miss America 2009)
This book is a game changer! Make a break for it! (Frank Shamrock, Five-Time UFC World Champion, author of Uncaged: My Life as a Champion MMA Fighter)
Make a Break for It will change your life! Our strength lies in our ability to overcome obstacles. Bill is a living example of someone who overcame enormous obstacles. Using his dramatic testimony, he shows readers they too can overcome any obstacle in their life though God’s power! (Bill Kazmaier, Three-time World’s Strongest Man, Powerlifter and Wrestler)

We all will experience a test in our life. At times we will feel we are not worthy of something so wonderful as Jesus's love. But I always think of this verse; But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. ~Romans 5:8
Brother Bill's book could help anyone seeking some understanding along with great scripture to start your need to read the Bible. I pray many have the opportunity to read this.
May God Bless you all.
