New book equips readers with information about life so they can have a better future

To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under the heaven. The seasons that people live through in this life are very tricky. One season can be full of obstacles and heartache while another can be full of bliss and happy times. Author Bishop Kenneth Obi talks about the changing seasons of life as he shares Coming to America: The Naked Truth.

Some people say things are tougher for immigrants. By coming to America they subject themselves yet to a life that will be full of challenges. Yet many foreigners still choose to stay and live forever in America. In Coming to America: The Naked Truth, the author speaks from the heart as he reveals the whole truth and nothing but the truth about his experience of coming to America. Within the pages of this book, readers can learn about the trials and tribulations, victories and losses Bishop Obi had. He has never expected his life to end up the way it did, but since God decided to work with him, things have never been the same.

The author hopes that in sharing his life, he can equip readers with information about life which he did not have. The Bible says that the wise man will learn from the mistakes of others. Bishop Obi shares his mistakes and mishaps so that others can learn from it and make their future better. Even if one is not an immigrant, life will still throw challenges which one is not equipped to handle on his own. God has a way of making things better, immigrant or not. Thus, it is important to navigate through life with Him.
