Editorial Review:

Product Description:
This book features an old man and his promise. It is a remarkable story of inspiration, interpretation, and promise. It goes beyond the universal definition for a promise by explaining how to create an environment for keeping promises, acknowledging that life has its own set of God created promises, and by using a metaphor to help demonstrate the ease of making a promise in contrast to keeping the same. The book cover is a reproduction of a watercolor, named "I Promise," painted by John Quanrud. John is a Northwest Artist, and a Signature Member of the National Watercolour Society. "Journey to Freedom is a heart-warming reflection on the experience, in the depths of one's soul, of taking God at His word. Yet because the author's words are faithfully grounded in God's Word, they apply to all who desire to live a life filled with promise, purpose and praise. I felt especially drawn to the tenderness of the autobiographical stories set within the context of the poignancy of the author's current situation. The book is a testimony to God's goodness in times of trial and to His faithfulness in turning sorrow to joy." - Kirk E. Farnsworth, Ph.D., author of Wounded Workers and All Churches Great and Small "Jon Wood purposefully takes the reader along with him on his journey to discover the wonderful depths of the promises of God. He gently and lovingly moves us from simply knowing Jesus Christ as Savior to finding how wonderful it is to make Him truly Lord of our life. Jon's gentle style reflects the gentleness of his own spirit that is so completely in love with his Lord." - Katie Fortune, author of Discover Your God-Given Gifts "In Jon Wood's Journey to Freedom he parts the curtains to give us all glimpses into his travels to wholeness in Christ. Through everyday incidents-common to all of us-we see God's hand working through the mundane to accomplish the divine." - Marge McRae Jon Wood is a 2000 graduate of City University, Bellevue, Washington. In chapter one (Inspiration Taken from the Old Man) he explains what inspired him to write this book. He writes, "I finished the majority of the book the same month that my wife was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Since the diagnosis, we have experienced so many blessings, in so many well-orchestrated situations, in such a short period of time; I am convinced that we are in the shadow of His wings. I feel writing this book was no coincidence. I believe God used this past year to prepare us for the road ahead. My wish is that this book will serve as a daily reminder for those readers who want to find time to celebrate, reaffirm, or pray about their promises." Jon and Linda live in Kingston, Washington. Their home church is Bayside Community Church.
