/ -- Born and raised in a small town in Kansas, Rick Unruh was called into the ministry at a young age. But when he lost his mother to cancer despite her unwavering faith in God's healing, it planted seeds of doubt in his heart. He served as a traveling evangelist for years but later faded away from the ministry.
He and his wife lost their house in a fire, but a year later, far worse pain was ahead when they, lost their twelve-year-old son in an ATV accident. Just when it seemed there was hope and recovery ahead, Rick was blindsided by a federal investigation into a mortgage consulting group he'd been involved with. He was eventually charged and then sentenced to over a year in prison, embarrassed and sure that God was done with him this time. But God wasn't finished.
Available now from Redemption Press, Self-Surrender: The Key to Dreaming Again is a testament to the God who restores us and allows us to dream again—if we will only surrender ourselves to him.
Unruh acknowledges, "There were times I was ready to just call it quits." But he hopes those who read his story are encouraged "to never give up on life or God." The book will speak "to the pastor doing good, who just needs some encouragement to dream again, to dream bigger; to the person thinking their marriage is hopeless; to financial issues; to addictions; to the bottom of the barrel. There is always hope."ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
