"It Takes A Village"
We’ve all heard the phrase “It takes a village to raise a child”. I have discovered that it also takes a village to do almost anything right in the Kingdom of God. So with profound gratefulness and appreciation I acknowledge that without God’s incredible assistance through others, this project would have never been completed. I want to say THANK YOU to the many friends and acquaintances that encouraged me to take on this project and to keep going to the end!
Thank you to all the individual supporters who partnered with me and made this experience possible, and especially to Calvary Chapel of Sarasota for their years of generously supporting Beyond Jail Ministry, along with the encouragement to ensue the writing of my book, "Beyond Addiction".
A special thanks to Earl Sandifer and his late wife Annabelle, for believing in me, praying for me daily, and supporting me. Your encouragement and faith in me to do this spurred me on when I sometimes struggled to put a word down on the page.
I am very grateful to Mary Jo Hencye for her generous help with editing the book and her valuable suggestions.
A special thanks to Heather Twitchell for the motivation and encouragement to get a blog up and running; your help with vision and content were invaluable.
Lastly I want to thank my daughter Anastasia Maracle for giving me her time and artistic talents developing and designing this amazing website.
