Interview with Bob Snyder

Why did you write this book? What inspires you to write?
I am a Christian, and the Holy Spirit of God that dwells in my heart leads me and guides me each day. The Holy Spirit prompted me, or led me, to write this particular book on these subjects. The Lord gave me the title of this book as well as the chapters.
When did you start writing?
This is actually my second book. I self-published and printed a limited number of my first book, entitled "The Price of Pain". That book was primarily my testimony of how God delivered me from emotional pain in my life. Also I received a "six step method" which I have used extensively as a tool to help others who are in emotional pain. So really, this second book (which is my first e-pub book) is kind of a sequel to that. That's why its called "Life Beyond the Pain".
How have your life experiences influenced your writing?
I grew up in New York, upstate (really a suburb of New York City), and did not hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ until I was in College. All along, I had emotional pain that no one seemed to understand. I had a middle class upbringing and a good family, good school (I went to a boarding school during High School), so there was no logical reason for my hyperactive and emotional outbursts. It was only later on as an adult after I had accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior, that during Bible Based counseling I discovered, or got to the root of my problem. I discovered that because I was adopted as a baby, and abused by my natural mother that this caused a tremendous amount of anger and rejection in my life. However, after finding out the root of my problem in counseling, God healed me from the inside out and changed me as a person. As a result of this, I was called into the Ministry.
How do you use your writing to help others?
I have been blessed by God to receive a lot of inspirational writing, that is based on Bible principles, such as a study on the meaning of the books of the Bible, as well as a Six Step Method to Emotional Healing. I have this six step method in both of my books. I have applied these principles to my life, and have used these principles to help teach others that I meet with one on one.
