I’m just a guy with a not-so-average body type who thought his (often humorous) perspective might be something that might help people. For those of you who have been, or continue to be, “down with the thickness” my hope is this book will be something that you can relate to, and might even be a source of encouragement.
For the rest, perhaps it’ll be educational in some regard and maybe help you to see things from another perspective. Regardless of body type, there are still experiences that we all, as human beings, share and sometimes the key to overcoming the more difficult of those experiences is to look at things from a fresh point of view, with humor, or even to realize that there are other people out there that have been there and survived.At the time of my writing this I’m just a few months past my 31st birthday.
In that time I’ve had experiences that many might consider unique: I’ve been an agnostic, a cynic, and a licensed minister. I’ve been a volunteer chaplain for a prison- lived in a transitional living facility as a manager with homeless families- worked for a world renowned non-profit organization- and been a white youth pastor in an all-African American church in the middle of the inner city of Chattanooga, TN.
I’ve dealt with depression, suicide, and being a “morbidly obese” guy living in a world about two or three sizes smaller than me. The following book is my perspective and opinions on things like life, relationships, and religion. I don’t profess to have all the answers, I just hope that someone somewhere out there might read this and be touched in some way.
