I CAN'T WAIT TO TRY THIS RECIPE! ABOUT JUNE'S BOOK Jess Colton can earn a PHD in computer science but can’t manage his own life. Raised by a doting mother and controlling father, Jess battles against his addictive nature. When Jesus comes into his life, he trades one addiction for another—food for alcohol.

But that really doesn’t define me these days, and I need to update it. Somewhere in there I need to include “Published Author” Need to work on that. Congratulations on all counts.

My teachers soon learned of my voracious reading appetite, so, along with my homework (brought home to me by my sister) my teachers started sending me books from the school library.
