A note from JoAnn DeJoria Smith These letters were born in New York City in 1974 after a tragedy in my life. My husband had died in a motorcycle accident, and a year later I was visiting New York. I wanted to make our daughter a birthday card. So I went into an art store in Manhattan and bought a few art supplies, and that is when I drew my first letters which became The Alphabuddies.
Twenty-seven years later, I was working on My Own Picture Diary, the first completed Alphabuddies project, when the World Trade Center and Pentagon were attacked. I wanted to do something to help the children, so I spoke with John Paul DeJoria, CEO of John Paul Mitchell Systems and asked if he would donate some of these Pictures Diaries to charity. A crisis counselor in New York told me the books would be a useful tool for therapy with children in any counseling situation.
I am delighted to be able to make My Own Picture Diary available not only as a gift book but also as a counseling tool for children in crisis. I hope this book will serve as a keepsake for those who are going through life's rough places.
And a word to children-if you have a dream, don't let it die just because of what someone has told you, or a poor grade on a report card. After getting a D in art class, I had no confidence to draw. However, a few people encouraged me to keep drawing my letters, and a dream began to form in my heart to make books using The Alphabuddies. I am glad I ignored the voices of those who said I couldn't do it.

A Minster With A Huge Secret - His Story Oct 1, 2006
In the introduction to his book "Out Of The Depths of Sexual Sin: The Story of My Life and Ministry" find out why author Steve Gallagher founded his Pure Life Ministries in 1986 in Sacramento. That organization began modestly enough and now is helping many good Christian people fight sex addiction. He states that his main purpose in writing his book "is to testify to the fact that God can transform the most wretched life into one of decency".
This book hits on a subject that this is often hidden or ignored in so subtle of ways. The author was L.A. Deputy Sheriff while living a personal life style that was morally corrupted according to him. He was involved in the world of strip clubs, street prostitutes and other behaviors that would be considered unwholesome. In his autobiography, he opens up about his past and shares some of his deepest and most humiliating failures including his life of drug use and crime. He does not paint a pleasant picture of himself but his intentions are to show that even someone like himself can be redeemed and changed and go then on to help rescue others suffering these same delusions and temptations.
This is for the mature reader only. The story is all about changing people and our culture. It is pointed out that 4.2 million websites are pornographic; so some of those people who are connecting with those websites might be someone you know and respect. According to the book, there is one scary and very startling statistic in that 20% of pastors admit to having had an affair while in the ministry. This is a problem and it is not going to go away by ignoring that it doesn't exist; so his book is trying to address this issue and reach out a helping hand to those in need of change. This book is not for everyone but if you need help with this concern or have someone you know who does then reading this book would be a good start to changing their lives.
