That reason is revealed in this book as he encourages you to believe that life can be a wonderful experience. You’ll laugh and cry as you take this journey with George Snodgrass. You have nothing to lose and your life to gain.
My name is Chris Fox, and I was born with Tourette's syndrome and obsessive-compulsive disorder. In the past, I constantly battled getting bullied in school, which eventually led to substance abuse and a life that was out of control. I wasn't living anymore; I was trying to survive. My life was filled with turmoil and I almost lost it numerous times, until I met the woman of my dreams. She accepted my Tourette's and OCD, but I almost lost her due to my out of control lifestyle. I was in too deep and I had to choose to walk alone or walk with God. I surrendered to God and encountered the Holy Spirit. The Spirit revealed that I had a special gift to make others laugh, and I needed to put all of my trust in God to pursue my dreams. After living such a painful past, I knew I had made the biggest decision of my life.
