1 Year Anniversary Of My Book!

book cover

I am very excited to share this with you all!  On this day one year ago (3-29-18), I started writing out my testimony.  I can’t believe it has already been a year!  I finished the book the next day on the 30th, titled it “One Man’s Very Strange Supernatural Life,” and published it on Amazon.  For some reason, the eBook shows it was published on the 29th, but that’s okay.  The paperback version shows the 30th.  I am so thankful for what the Lord has done and I appreciate all of you who have supported me!  It has been an amazing journey of growth in the Lord and I pray that I will continue to be faithful and obedient to His calling.  The most important truth you could ever share with someone is how their soul can be saved, and that answer can only be found in Jesus!

Many of you already have a copy of the book and I am so grateful for that!  Thank you for all the uplifting messages you have sent me and thank you to all of you who left such encouraging reviews on Amazon!  You have all been a great blessing to me and my family!

When I wrote the book, I was coming out of a lot of pain and suffering.  I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease on January 6, 2012 and I suffered terrible pain and anguish for several years.  The Lord never left me and He brought a great amount of healing to my body.  In 2018 He was calling me to move forward in Him and He put it on my heart in a big way to share my testimony with the world.  I started blogging on August 10, 2018, five months after I published the book, and I have been preaching the Gospel here on WordPress ever since.  God is so good and He has brought me a long way from suffering Celiac and depression!  Thank You Jesus!!!

Most of you know my testimony by now, but there are a lot of new people on the blog that might not.  I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior in October of 1996 when I was 18.  I am 40 now.  When I was in 8th grade my Dad got a new job and we moved to Illinois.  That moved drastically changed our lives forever.  The house we moved into was possessed by a demon and it terrorized our family the entire four years I was in high school.  We were not Christians, but after that my whole family knew hell was real.

I accepted Jesus my freshman year at the University of Northern Colorado and I was trained in discipleship and evangelism through Campus Crusade for Christ.  That December of my freshman year, I went home at Christmas break and rebuked the demon out of our home in the Name of Jesus!  We never had any trouble with demons again and my parents and younger sister all accepted Christ!  Thank You Jesus!!!

My life continued to be strange and supernatural after I accepted Christ, but in a good way.  To give you the quick version: I encountered angels twice in Denver in the summer of 1998 and I stopped breathing on 4-28-12, I left my body, I was with Jesus for a short moment, and then He put me back in my body by the power of the Holy Spirit.  Yeah, I know!  Let that sink in for a minute.  Now you understand the title of my book and why I preach with such passion, yes?

I know it’s true!  Everything the Bible says about God, Heaven, hell, angels, demons, the Holy Spirit, Jesus and His life, death, and resurrection and everything else written in the Bible is 100% true!  I found that out in the most intensely life altering supernatural way at a time in my life when I wanted nothing to do with God.  I never asked for such a weird life.  I hated Christians in high school and by my senior year all I wanted to do was party.  I never thought in a million years that I would except Jesus in college and be preaching His Name for the rest of my life!  The Lord had mercy on me and I am forever grateful for that.  Thank You Jesus!!!

He saved my family from a demon and ended up saving our souls!  He rescued me from a murderer by using an angel to protect me!  He had an angel appear and speak to me, so my friends and I would help a lady in trouble!  I am still alive today and out here preaching the Gospel to the world because the Lord gave me His breath back and saved me by a mighty miracle!  I give Him BIG PRAISE and preach the Holy Name of Jesus because of all these things and I will testify to my very last breath!  Amen!  Glory to Your Holy Name Lord Jesus!!!

You can read all about it in my book.  I also wrote about some of it here on my blog.

This one is about the demon and the angels:

Remember that time when…

This one is about the day I stopped breathing:

My whole purpose in life is to help people come to know Jesus!  He died for me, for you, and for all of us, so we could be in Heaven forever with our Creator who loves us more than we can imagine!  Please take me up on my offer to get a free book.  It is only 7 chapters long and it only takes about 45 minutes to read it.  You don’t need a Kindle.  Amazon has a free Kindle App that you can get for any device in order to read the eBooks you download from them.  It’s very easy to use and the books look great too.  I pray that my testimony helps set you free from the fear of death and it helps you understand just how much God loves you!

“Some of you need proof, well here I am.  I am living proof that God is alive and that He still moves in power among us just like He always has.  It is still going to take faith to believe these things.  There are similar stories like mine that happened almost 2,000 years ago and they are recorded in the Bible (read Acts), but people still don’t believe.  I am just sharing my testimony so that you will have a better understanding of the reality that surrounds you, so you can make a better decision about your eternal soul.  I pray that the suffering and joys I have experienced in my strange walk with God will somehow help you rise up and become victorious over sin and death!  In the Name of Jesus, amen.”

-One Man’s Very Strange Supernatural Life, Chapter 4

The best news in the whole world is found in the Bible folks!  That soul saving news is that Jesus died for you to forgive all of your sins, He rose from the dead three days later conquering sin and death, and He offers that same powerful victory to you through faith in Him!  Jesus is Lord, Jesus is alive, and Jesus is coming back someday!  It is by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ that our souls are saved!  Jesus is eternal life!

“That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”

Romans 10:9

“For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith–and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God–not by works, so that no one can boast.”

Ephesians 2:8-9

“for, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.”

Romans 10:13

“Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.  No one comes to the Father except through me.”

John 14:6

Come to Jesus today and let Him save your soul!  No sin is too great!  You are not too far gone!  He saved a sinful man like me and He can save you too!  Let His love wash over you and set you free!

Grace and peace to you all!

“Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life.  He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.  Do you believe this?”

John 11:25-26

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Jesus in John 3:16

  1. Happy One Year Anniversary, Ryan! It is an awesome book you wrote and with powerful testimony! That was one of the most exciting days to share with you when your book appeared on Amazon. So exciting to read and it grabbed my heart and soul. God so blessed you with a gift, and you are honoring Him by continuing to be obedient to His calling. I am so grateful for your blog. I want to leave a poem for you called “Onward, Christian Soldier”. Have you read it before? It reminds me of what you do so passionately and your blogger family, too. May we all continue to be His faithful soldiers. “Praise the Lord” that Jesus Christ is our royal Master, the King of all Kings, and Lord of all Lords, Who has already won the victory for us!

    Onward, Christian Soldiers, marching as to war.
    With the cross of Jesus going on before:
    Christ, the royal Master, leads against the foe;
    Forward into battle, see His banners go.

    Like a mighty army moves the Church of God;
    Brothers, we are treading where the saints have trod,
    We are not divided, all one body we;
    One in hope and doctrine, one in charity.

    Crowns and thrones may perish, kingdoms rise and wane,
    But the Church of Jesus constant will remain,
    Gates of hell can never ‘gainst that Church prevail;
    We have Christ’s own promise, and that cannot fail.

    Onward, then, ye people, join our happy throng;
    Blend with ours your voices in the triumph song,
    Glory, laud, and honor unto Christ the King,
    This through countless ages men and angels sing.

    Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war,
    With the cross of Jesus going on before.

    Thank you, Ryan!!! Love, Mom

      1. Thanks Amy! Yeah, he was such a good little doggie too. I would love to hear about your experiences. It was a scary and dark time for our family and we are so thankful Jesus delivered us and saved us. God bless!


      2. I felt the breath too. I was newly saved wanting to know more about Lucifer. Trying to find the scripture where it spoke of his clothing and all that. I kept asking around at church for the scripture. That night when I went to sleep I laid on my side in the dark. Something was at the side of my bed as if on all fours. I heard a gasps or growl and then felt the breath. Nothing was there when I turned the lights on.

        Similarly to your sister’s story, I’d wake many nights from middle school until now sensing a presence of something standing in a corner. All you gotta say is in Jesus name!!

      3. You’re welcome. I feel that he was saying…well you were wanting to know.about me, here I am. When i hear the scripture he is a lion seeking whom he may devour, my mind goes to that. Not in fear, but a reminder he is seeking us all and we must be vigilant. Ok have a good weekend
