My name is Gordon Philip Magee, I am in my mid 50s, married only to Petra who has blessed me with 7 children and by whom we have many grandchildren. I live and work in Sonoma County CA as a Senior Engineering Manager for an equipment design corporation. But it was not always so. Thoroughly lost by age 18 I said yes to the salvation of Jesus, broken completely as a curbside addict by age 20 I understood His calling and began to follow. My first book 'Breaking the Cycle of Slavery to Sin' includes the story of my recovery through His power. My second book 'Seeking God for Daily Living and Destiny' includes the story of what happened over the years as I let the Lord God have His way and write His-Story into my life.
The Book of Revelation, is it too hard to understand or just too scary? Jesus said: ‘No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you’ (John 15:15).
Who are we? Why are we here? What is this life really all about? If God exists can I know Him? Is friendship with God possible? Does God indeed have a plan and destiny for me? Come put into practice steps which will transform you into a person who is: 'Seek God for Daily Living and Destiny'.
Beyond Recovery: A Journey of Grace, Love, and Forgiveness
on July 27, 2017
I have known Shawn from general association at church for years but never knew his backstory. I know something of broken homes and addiction and it was interesting to read about another Marin boy who was blown apart and put back together as I was. I enjoyed the read and five stars for the courage to share the story in detail AND for following through on deliverance as God revealed timeless truths to Shawn step by step. It is the follow through that matters and thank you Shawn for this example and sharing your evident courage and perseverance so that more can see what it really takes to get beyond recovery.
