Item description for Finding Home: An Imperfect Path to Faith and Family by Jim Daly & Bob DeMoss...

Orphaned, abused, and abandoned, Daly survived 23 different homes and the streets of Los Angeles. His horrific childhood should have left him insane--or in jail. Instead he's now president of Focus on the Family. Readers will be transfixed by this deeply personal memoir and powerful illustration of God's relentless love for the lost and the brokenhearted.

Publishers Description

"I should be insane--or in jail."

Instead, Jim Daly, President and CEO of Focus on the Family managed to rise above his harrowing childhood that began in the Compton suburb of Los Angeles. In this deeply personal memoir, he relives horrors no child should endure. A bloodcurdling neighborhood murder merely serves as the backdrop to the abuse and alcoholism within the four walls of his own home, a cycle broken only by the cancer that leaves him motherless. Orphaned by twelve, he somehow managed to catch enough glimpses of grace that he knew he wanted more, both from himself and from a God he had to believe existed.

Reviews - What do customers think about Finding Home?

Finding Home: Hope In Desperation  May 29, 2009
Jim Daly's book Finding Home was compelling. Although he never suffered physical or sexual abuse the other things he and his family endured were still things that no one should never have to endure. The fact that he grew up as a hopeful boy is remarkable to me. Every day people give up over less than Jim endured on one of his bad days.

The part of the book that really resounded in me was his account of his mother's death. I suppose the reason was that my own sister died and left five children, the youngest being six and eight years old. I saw my nephews in that chapter as they suffered over their loss. No one could take the place of their mother. The difference was that Jim and his siblings had no one to hold them and tell them that all would be well.

His narrative rang true in that he wrote the way a boy thinks. Boys can squeeze out joy in the middle of hard times as long as they have access to a bicycle or a ball and bat. This book emphasises the importance of people stepping in to make a difference in the lives of people that cross our path. Coaches, teachers, pastors, and friends are necessary for kids. We must be there to lend a listening ear and wise council. This book is a "must read".
Oliver Twist has nothing on this guy  Jun 2, 2008
Jim Daly's book is not just inspirational. It's important because it is real. It is as real as the chipped linoleum floor of a crummy kitchen in a lousy apartment building. And that's about as good as his future looks. How he overcomes betrayals, heart aches, deaths, and a slew of disappointments is amazing.

It is THE amazing grace in the end that sends this story into a realm that couldn't just happen without some divine help.

Focus on the Family is lucky to have this guy. He's the real deal. He's the genuine article, not fake, not flattering, not unfamiliar with real struggle. He knows how important a family is because he didn't have it.

This would be a great movie; uplifting and meaningful...something movies have not been in a long time....and it's so gritty even Focus on the Family could not handle it.

This book took courage and bravery to write. Read it because it will impart these traits to you.
Balancing Faith, Family and the Future  Apr 24, 2008
Jim Daly and Bob DeMoss have combined their gifts to produce an excellent book for married couples and parents. Well-written and positive, the book constantly points us to enduring values --- and thus away from the stress and strain that so often sidetrack us.

How do you see past the daily grind? The answer is a change of focus: Daly shows us what we ought to be thinking about, looking at, and considering as we raise children, manage a career, and forge a family.

A great wedding gift --- helps new couples think about these issues on a pre-need basis. An excellent anniversary present --- shows couples how to unite around common goals and common ground.

Well-written, encouraging and always realistic. A hope-filled book that lights your pathway to the family God wants you to be!

A Message of Hope  Feb 23, 2008
This was an excellent book. The author shares so much of his own personal life - much of which was heartbreaking. But he also shares how he was able to rise above his past to become the man God wanted him to be. This book will give you hope that you, too, can rise above your own past and have a fulfilling, life of purpose.
It was definitely worth reading. I'm putting a copy in my church library to share it with others.
Unbelievable childhood but overcoming all  Jan 21, 2008
Jim Daly's early years read like the start of a sort of horror story that gets worse and worse a time goes on. If you have struggled with anything and become discouraged, get this book and see what faith can do for you (as it did for Jim Daly).
