Ms. Hanna, I am so excited that Mr. Drexel Deal is coming to Grand Bahama. It was such a coincidence, as I have just completed reading his book and I wondered how I could get him to come to speak to our students, especially our young men who can identify with his family structure, childhood, rejection, economic environment and anger, and so much more. Looking forward to reaping the rewards of what I have no doubt will impact the lives of our young men as we declared at Jack Hayward Senior High: “2016 – The Year of Your Dreams.” As he stated in his book, the title of his book was birthed in a dream! Students need to understand that their dreams become reality when they surrender ALL to God and begin to seek Him for their purpose in life – the reason they were magnificently created! Mr. Deal has a “real” story to tell that will not only captivate this young audience but also teach valuable lessons! Regards,
Good Day Drexel Thank you so much for sharing this powerful story. Your story is my story brother. And I relate to what you have experienced growing up fatherless in many ways. I read your book first chapter and I admire the way you tell the truth as is, simple and powerful. Man you are really a gift to this generation and let me know how can I help to take your message to the youth of my country, South Africa. Love in Action
Hello Drexel, Thank you for sharing this marvellous story..I have purchased three copies of your book for friends and have others, to whom I have promised to get copies for them.. I am raising a 17 yr old grandson, whose mother died almost two years ago..He is grieving hard, as they were very close and shared a beautiful loving relationship…..I am not happy with some of the new friends that he has made since his mother’s death..His father is not in his life… It is a difficult time, but I am happy reading your book, and very grateful that you were brave enough to share your journey….A huge ‘thank you’ from me..I am not at the end of your journey yet, as in order for me to fully grasp what you lived through, I am reading, and digesting slowly… God Bless You
Good evening Mr. Deal, We really enjoyed your time with us at our school. I just finished your book. Congratulations! You did a wonderful job. I didn’t want to put it down. What you say about boys and their fathers is so true. My first son grew up without his father. It has not been easy for me and especially for him. But also I think being fatherlessness affects girls as well. My father died when I was very young. I spent a lot of years making mistakes in relationships. I think not having him in my life left me inadequately prepared to find what I was looking for. Keep writing. I look forward to the sequel.
