Life can take one to unexpected journeys, to unintended places. And with family, there is always something great to look forward to. In his heartwarming memoir, author Leroy Walls discloses the simple-made-extraordinary adventures of his family as they followed the call of God up to the fate of the north and the grace of the lord's word down south.
"30 South/30 North"(published by Xlibris) is Walls’ story through three decades of life in the north and three decades of equally memorable journeys in the south. His tale contains snippets of memories cut out from the impeccable canvas of yesterdays. As a Christian deacon for over 50 years, Walls trod with his family beyond the borders of the land to answer God's calling, which they willingly followed with faith. These quests have brought them to new places, new experiences and new understanding that strengthened their bond as one family. The formed connection, Walls believes, is worth every risk if harnessed with trust from the divine.
The autobiographic sense of Wall's work roots down to his childhood, which he generously shares with passionate eloquence. He imparts his gracious thoughts, his poems and occasionally, teachings that have found its way in the depth of his being. Furthermore, he graces readers with a fervent encouragement about the beauty of friends, whom he was fortunate to have in abundance throughout the years.
Replete with personal testimonies, anecdotes and little family secrets, "30 South/30 North" is a relatable tale with no partiality or pretense - it is a raw account of honesty, full of hopes, dreams and inspiringly vibrant life.
