Starting September, one year ago, my life changed. I had been living at home with my parents and siblings, and with one phone call that all changed. I was 19 years old, and I was preparing to move out. I took my first ministry position as a Youth Pastor of a small church, and I had no idea of the journey that was to begin. This book is a look at the story that unfolded through this year. My fight against myself, and against the notions of others that annoyed me. This book is a genuine look at the last teenage year, and the transformation from being a kid to being someone who can be true to themselves, for the first time in 20 years. I am sure through these works of fiction and non-fiction, you will be able to see parts of your own life. I am nothing exceptional, I am just a person.
