How on Earth Did I Get Here?


By James H. Willis, III


For 2020, we are doing a 12-month summary of my book. It is filled with unbelievable personal stories of conflict from family fights, divorces, and personal insecurities to living in a tree at 15, homeless. Later the book recounts how the Lord’s guidance put me on the path of an overcomer! From being unloved, unwanted, and uncared for to healthy, happy, and whole.

I can’t think of any subject that is tougher to talk about than money, particularly in the American Church. I must confess that the entire concept and frustration puzzles me. Here’s the rub. The problem the Christians have with money and why it is so offensive is because it can’t be camouflaged. Just look at their checkbooks. If they really love and trust God or not will be obvious and painfully embarrassing. Thus they get offensive instead of obedient. I’ve seen it for decades… so sad. Or it can be gratifying and rewarding.

Look inside these pages and find out what is True Financial Success. Biblically speaking—and that is all that counts— it’s not how much you make, but how you manage money. Most households are controlled by the very large budget that they have self-imposed upon themselves. And then they say “God, I don’t have that much money left over, but I’m giving You a little bit. Maybe I can do more next month.” And it goes on and on. God helps people become successful financially not to have more, but to give more to the Kingdom’s work.

You will also read how I met my first mentor, Larry Burkett, and his “How to Manage Your Money” study series. You will also learn about the Ten Steps to Financial Freedom—Wowzers!— and many more concepts shared inside this chapter. A must read!

We will talk about the two greatest Bible chapters on giving yet are hardly ever taught or preached about. Refreshing! And I can promise you, if you give God ALL your money, not just the 10% , He too will become “My God!” You can learn about the “6 Abundances” and be able to sing “Make Me A Blessing” with a happy heart.

Warning…Don’t read this book….
….unless you are wanting to be Complete in Christ!!!
