by Rob Mitchell
Abandoned by his parents when he was just three years old, Rob Mitchell began his journey as one of the last "lifers" in an American orphanage. As Rob's loneliness and rage grew, his hope shrank. Would he ever find a real family or a place to call home? A mother too absorbed with her own demons of drink and an insecure father, who became physically incapacitated following a failed suicide attempt, was just the beginning of the nightmare experienced by this CASTAWAY KID.
Add that to wealthy relatives unwilling to rescue an innocent young boy and you have a recipe for despair, hurt, anger, and rebellion. God, however, always has a plan of redemption, restoration, and forgiveness for those willing to ask, seek, and knock like the CASTAWAY KID. (biography)

ALL IS GRACE
Who among you would want to be known as a notorious sinner?
Richard (Brennan) Manning is one amount 12 - 15 men who call themselves just that as they gather once each year to openly and honestly share their hearts with one another, listen, pray, and celebrate communion. About half of them are recovering alcoholics. Brennan, by his own admission says, "I've been a priest, then an ex-priest. Husband, then an
ex-husband. Amazed crowds one night and lied to friends the neXt. Drunk for years, sober for a season, then drunk again. I've been John the beloved, Peter the coward, and Thomas the doubter all before the waitress brought the check".
ALL IS GRACE is the memoir of a ragamuffin, as Brennan readily describes himself, looking back on a rich but stained life. Throughout his biography Brennan relives and grasps the extraordinary powerful truth that ALL IS GRACE.
