Description


I have three grandchildren, all boys, with the third one, Jameson, soon to be born in September, God willing. I had developed a bond with my two oldest, Jackson and Jetson Harris, and was intentional about influencing them with the love of Jesus Christ. I wanted to create precious memories for them, like I tried to do with their mom and uncle. I took them outside to look for pine cones, looking for cicadas, running around in the grass, throwing balls around. Or sitting on the couch watching Veggie Tales and Paw Patrol, giving them TIME with Papa. But most importantly, I made time to introduce to them, who God is as their Creator, and their Savior Jesus Christ. I know the importance of it, to plant those seeds in them while their young. My gang life ended with me being suicidal, and God brought to my mind a memory of God's word, the holy bible, that literally saved my life. When I had lost all hope and meaning in my life, God saw fit to reveal Himself through the memory of His word. This was my driving force to writing this book. So when my daughter decided to move to Arkansas, I wanted to maintain that influence. I bought a notebook, and God gave me an idea to do a devotional for my grandsons, and have my daughter read it to them. I ended up mailing it to her. She called and said, "Dad, I love it You should make it available to other kids to. I prayed about it, and the result is, The ABC's of God. I hope it blesses you and your family as well. God be with you. My name is Eric M. West, born in Pine Bluff, Arkansas. I moved to Watts, California in 1973. I accepted Jesus Christ as an eight year old, but when I was eleven, the pressures of inner-city project life led me to join the Grape St. Watts Crip gang at age twelve. Eight years later God chose to rescue me from that violent world, where I received Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. A year later I enrolled in World Impact's Christian Leadership Training Center in Florence, Kansas, and graduated in 1988. I spent two years on their staff in Wichita, Kansas, working with kids and families. I married my wife Andrea in 1991, a math teacher, and we have two young adult children together, Ashley & Isaiah. I have three grandsons, Jackson, Jetson, and Jameson. I work in Maintenance at Central Christian Church in Wichita, for twenty-three years. I'm the author of From Crip To Christ: Change From The Inside Out, and I've been featured on Pacific Garden Mission's radio theatre program, UNSHACKLED.
