Charlotte, NC, March 24, 2014 |Christian News Service| — In what is being heralded as one of the most dramatic turn-around stories ever written, James D. Trent, in a book titled My Trip to God (LifeBridge), shares his life-changing transformation at the age of 40. In this no-holds-barred account, the South Carolina businessman describes his self-centered, prideful life of alcohol, drugs, and infidelity, and how it was dramatically changed by God.
Says the author, “I was at a point where suicide seemed the only way out. Then an amazing miracle took place.” Trent reveals how he escaped from the depths of darkness into total light. He adds, “This experience not only restored my life and marriage, but through daily, divine encounters, I received ten specific messages I share in the book.”
The encouragement to write this account came from the many sessions he and his wife had with Steve Arneson, a licensed professional counselor in Columbia, South Carolina. Says Arneson, “In my many years of counseling, I have never encountered a story like Jamie’s. Not only did he become totally honest regarding his past, but the events surrounding his about-face were beyond anything I could imagine.
The publisher states, “The initial response to the book has been overwhelming. Readers are using terms such as â€˜Awe inspiring’ and â€˜Couldn’t put it down.’ It is more than a story of coming back from an abyss; the author shows others the way out.”
James has spent over 20 years in the financial services industry. He and his wife, Kelli, have three daughters and are members of Mt. Horeb United Methodist Church in Lexington, South Carolina.
