Jim Painting believes that humans need direction and guidance in life. By making an effort to seek God, the author sees that every person can actually discover God and rely on his presence – in good and bad times.

His published book “My Bumpy Journey on the Road to Find God!” (published by Xlibris) describes times in which Painting came to realize God was with him even when his journey through life was unfocused and self-centered.

Chronicling the author’s childhood and early adult years, “My Bumpy Journey on the Road to Find God!” speaks of the author’s personal experiences in finding God. The author feels that his experiences in coming to know God might be helpful to others who are searching for a spiritual awareness.

This book tries to explain the importance of looking beyond self-interest and being more concerned with the well-being of others. “Much of our world news today is about those who want to further their own agenda without regards to those around them,” the author says. “Despite our failures, mistakes and bad behavior, God is willing and available to provide for us a second chance and a clear path.”
