I was fortunate to receive an advanced copy of Running On G. I was not prepared for the level of raw truth. It takes a great deal of courage to face the truth of who we are and how we got there. So many of the forces that framed Ms. James life were not of her making, abuse never is. It's what she has done with all the pain and uncertainty. I don't know a person who has not buried something from childhood or their teenage years because it hurts to remember. Ms. James has chosen to not only face her demons, she is also willing to acknowledge that a greater power was shaping her the whole time. This is an extraordinary book that I believe will give many people hope that no matter what your experiences are or life circumstances, God is always with us. If I didn't believe already, I would have opened my heart to let God heal my wounds and guide my life.
Running on G is a spiritual memoir, written by a professional colleague, Kimberly James. When Kimberly told me that she referenced a conversation that we had in her new book, I told her that I looked forward to reading it and giving her my honest feedback, from one author to another. Although I felt that I knew enough about Kimberly to make an accurate assessment of who she was, her words and her willingness to allow us into her deepest thoughts and experiences drew emotions out of me that I didn’t know I was capable of expressing spontaneously. I read the book on a flight from Washington, DC to Dallas, Texas and when I got to page 240, I found myself fighting back tears over Kimberly’s ability to extend forgiveness in ways that most would say is unforgivable. I am not a man known to cry!
