Introducing Ramon Presson

When I was a new Christian, the Lord graciously put me under the wing of a mentor who changed my life—a pastor, who taught me to read the Bible, pray, and to be committed to the local church. As years passed, I lost touch with this friend, and then last year, thanks to the ubiquitous reach of social media, we reconnected. Ramon Presson, author and founder of LifeChange Counseling Services, is still serving Christ with his gifts of speaking and writing.

A few months ago Ramon sent me his latest book, When Will My Life Not Suck? One day after receiving it, my Sister, Jeanette, who was visiting from New York, picked it up from my coffee table and started to read it. In her words, “I can’t put this book down and I must bring it home to finish it.” She promised to mail it back to me, but, after raving about it to some friends, she has since lent it out. All of that to say, I hope to post a review soon. In the meantime, checkout the promo video.

  1. I look happy in the first picture besauce I was drunk In all seriousness I wasn’t nearly as happy then as I am today. Not that I was particularly unhappy, I’m just in a far better place today. Some of that has to do with being healthier, some has to do with a better job situation, and some has to do with simply being more mature and having a different outlook on life in general.But one very important point I should make I don’t mean to imply at all that if you’re overweight, you shouldn’t be happy. Not in the slightest. The last thing I would ever do is try to dictate to anybody else what they should or should not do to make them happy.For *me* personally, I want to look and feel a certain way. And that means that I need to make certain sacrifices in what I eat/drink and/or in how much time I spend at the gym. My choice. For me.I make these posts for others who may want the same things, and who might see this as a source of motivation. And, of course, as a way to pat myself on the back for achieving certain goals and continuing to work towards others.But for those who don’t share those goals, go forth and eat, drink, and be merry. Hell yes. Life is far too short to be anything but happy
