Rev. Warren's definitive purpose in writing Footsteps of Recovery is to encourage the severely sick; to exhort souls; to edify those with physical, emotional, and spiritual needs; so they can know the comfort of God's presence in their lives. He reveals the importance of having balance in your life-a balance of physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
Rev. Warren shares his personal hurt and near-death experiences-even with hospice care, but reveals how he blossomed back with the affirmation of Christian faith. The dedication of these devotional messages is offered to help you during the thorny times of your life. The Footsteps of Recovery highlight the beauty of an eternal promise with our Lord and Savior. Tony's pastoral encouragement will help lead you toward the spiritual assurance of a healing recovery beyond your expectations.
