About the Book:
This collection of stories from
Bill's life will take you on his search for
love as a child, his search for himself in early adulthood, through the
Vietnam war, and into marriage, parenthood, and now
as a grandfather.
Search for your own spiritual awareness, your own gifts, as Bill takes
you through the pains, the loves, the wisdoms, the inspirations, and
the epiphanies of his divinely-guided life.
While reading Bill's stories, I
cried, laughed, prayed, and reflected.
Some stories scared me, while others made me ecstatic. Even the
sad stories caused me to reflect on the good that comes from all
experiences, if we only take the time to look for it. McDonald's love
for life shines through in each of his stories. From haunted houses to
magical rainbows, heavenly angels to unearthly beings, horrific war
to blessed weddings, out-of-body soaring to helicopter flight, Bill
takes us there with each of his told-from-the-heart tales.
Now sit back, relax, and
prepare to run the gauntlet of your emotions
as you enjoy the journey of one man's incredible life...one man who
has touched so many other lives, as he will yours.
