Here is Chapter 1 of Driving Through Heaven

Here’s the complete first chapter for you to read

My fundraiser for publishing Driving Through Heaven: The Complete Guide to Knowing God and Living in His Kingdom on Earth has so far received $765, or 11% of our Minimum Goal of $7,000.  Most of the contributions have been for pre-publication orders of paperback and PDF copies of the book.

I know many people haven’t had time to read any of the sample chapters available at the book website:, so I thought I’d make it easy for you and give you a copy. Please let me know what you think of it.

If you like what you read, please consider pre-ordering copies of the book at the fundraiser website:

The First Time I Heard God’s Voice

The first time I heard God’s voice was when I was living in Puerto Rico.  As with most who hear his voice, it comes to me as a quiet voice within my mind and heart, not audibly.  But the first time was during a two-year quest to learn who God is.  That adventure began while I was in the U.S. Navy serving aboard a ship in the Mediterranean Sea, which I may relate in another post.  Entering the Navy, I was an agnostic, not convinced that God existed or had done me any good, but I retained a healthy skepticism regarding the divine.  My experience on that ship changed that.

Then, in February 1978, the Navy transferred me to a …
