Ernie Tolin had wanted to go to the US Naval Academy. He would not be able to realize that dream. He would pursue a second dream of working with aircraft and being able to work on the National Forest. He gave up a full time job to pursue this dream and would spend the majority or his life working for the US Forest Service. His first assignment was the "Air Attack Unit" at Chino airport. He would be reassigned to an aerial reseeding project on the San Dimas Experimental Forest. He would continue working on research projects and would receive a permanent appointment and work for the "Fuel Break Project." Ernie would eventually get transferred to the new Forest Fire Laboratory in Riverside California. Helicopter projects, fire fighting, re vegetation and vegetation survey work would keep Ernie busy for a couple of years. Working at the Fire Lab would require analysis of large volumes of data. The only way to do the analysis was to use hand calculators or learn how to use mainframe computers. Ernie became a computer programmer and began writing programs to analyze not only field data but use the technology to dispatch fire equipment and make maps of fuel types for fire simulations. Ernie would be reassigned to Washington DC to work on automated mapping systems. Soon, he would be heading up a technical group of computer specialist. He would help develop specifications for major computer purchases. By the late 1970's Ernie would head up a group of specialist to analyze data for the Roadless Area Review (RARE II). Ernie would be named as the Director of Computer Science in the California Pacific Island Region and he would move to the San Francisco Bay area. Ernie continued working as the Director of Computer Science & Telecommunications Staff until his retirement.

If you really and truly want God in your life, you owe it to yourself to read this book. This story is about a young boy who suffered and still suffering chasing dreams and facing a lot of suffering along the way, and how he achieved most of his dreams. After fifty-five years of his life, he came to find Jesus Christ even though he came from an extremely dysfunctional family, feeling rejected, not loved, was sexually, physically, and verbally abused. He faced the nasty words from his father, "You are way too stupid and black and ugly. You'll never amount to anything!"

His son was shot, and his house was bombed. Danny had been shot and stabbed multiple times and was left in a coma for seven days in an attempted arrest as a bounty hunter. And while he was in a coma, Danny had his second Christian spiritual experience with God. The first spiritual encounter was in the juvenile hall. The story you are about to read may seem like fiction or something out of a movie script. If you enjoyed the books Divine Revelations of Hell, by Mary K. Baxter, or Proof of Heaven, by Dr. Eden Alexander, or the movies Forrest Gump or Walking Tall, then you'll love reading this book. Ninety-five percent of what you will read in this book is true. All of the names have been changed to protect the innocent. God bless.

Clint McBride wanted to have it all--a beautiful wife, a great career, success, wealth--all before age 30, but it was not to be. Everything came crashing down on him, including his beautiful home that he burned to the ground. Doors opened for Clint everywhere he went, as his best friend's father took the young architect into his construction business. Deal followed deal, success followed success, and soon Clint and his wife, Dusty, seemed to have it all. But it was too much too soon for the young couple--especially for Clint, whose greed for more wealth, more power, and more success dominated his life. Clint and Dusty had it all and then lost it. Terrible things happened to the two of them as Clint's dreams became obsessions and overpowered their lives in Woodside, California. When greed and betrayal took over, Clint left for Europe. In a drunken stupor on the airplane to Madrid, he met Father Bernardo, who eventually brought renewed direction and meaning to Clint's life and helped turn failure into new success.

This inspiring and true adventure story is about the author and her husband s journey to find beauty and meaning on the little known Island of Lefkas. The realistic descriptions of the people and places in the evocatively Greek environment take you right there with them, sharing in this heart-warming venture. The text moves along at a comfortable pace, and the prose is vivid and full of memorable images that contrast the Island s beauty with their traveling hardships. Follow them on their journey and find out if they found the secret of true happiness, or were they merely chasing dreams? Note from the author: I wrote this book because I wanted to share some unforgettable experiences with other dreamers who might not have had the opportunity to 'opt out of the rat race' the way my husband, Tony and I did in 1991. It was a way out of a depressing situation when Tony was made redundant shortly before his 50th birthday. When you have reached rock bottom there is nowhere else to go, but up. When you lose all material things sometimes if you are determined you can overcome all difficulties, but you have to have a dream and follow it. Then you can gain so much more. Because we live in a pre-planned society rare opportunities are often missed. It is only when we look back we wonder why we never saw them at the time. Why did we hesitate? Why did we lose our dreams? Maybe in the great scheme of things there is a reason for everything. Maybe the drastic change in our circumstances was an opportunity for us to find our dream and have the adventure of a lifetime... This is what I want to share in the hope that it will help people in today's economic crisis to take on a challenge, to find a dream and do something that they might never have done. Then they can look back and say, "I'm glad we had that recession."

When his anger and despair escalated to guns and knives, the struggle to survive became her priority. Driven to the brink of suicide she finally sought outside help.
