About Roy Barree

I was raised by my grandparents from the time I was an infant. My grandparents had very little income and was considered to be poverty stricken. At the age of 6, my grandparents could not afford to send me to school, so I was moved into my fathers and stepmothers home. At the of 7, I was moved into my mothers and stepfathers home. Passed around several times, I became an unstable adolescent. At the age 17, I was living on the streets of a large city. At 18 years old, I was married with a small child. At 19, I was drafted into the Army. At 21, I reenlisted and became an Airborne Ranger. After 6 years in the Army, I went back into civilian life and had several years of hard transition challenges. Divorced and living on the move, I was blessed with an oil industry job contracting around the world. After several years, I remarried and in 2004, I became a contractor working for the military under third-party contracts in combat zones. From 2004 to 2008, I contracted as an Engineering Technician / senior CAD Designer in Afghanistan over seeing and directing an eight-man design team. I was also the Geographical Mapping Technician for the Kandahar and FOB Salerno military bases. In 2011, I contracted to Iraq as a Senior Designer and Geographical Mapping Technician for the Al Asad base. At the end of 2011, I wanted something exciting to do, so I came home and became a substitute teacher.

Review by: Debbie Barree on April 11, 2017 :
I think this book is exceptional. It covers so many situations that a person could encounter in their life. I think this book can help those who are going through similar things in their life, for them to see that it is very possible to come through those situations for the better. I love the way the author gives God the credit in several places, because God is the reason he made it through all those challenges. My prayer is that this book will touch lives in mighty ways to help people.
