An excerpt from the book:
We may not be able to make decisions in regard to what we do think, but we do need to decide what we think about. In Philippians 4:8, the Bible says so. We have the right before God to pick the subject we think about. We may not be able to predict what ideas may visit our craniums while we are thinking, but we do have a choice of topics we think about. If that were not so, the Bible wouldn’t say for us to meditate on things of “good report.”

Enlightening and insightful, “Truths” hopes to make readers’ mind more in sync with the realities ordained by God.

About the Author
Donald R. James was born to David F. James and Hattie Freeman James on August 16, 1947, in Desoto County. He went to two separate schools as a youth and eventually graduated from J. Z. George High School after 13 years of sporadic study. Pursuant to his desire to be a writer, he studied English in Holmes Junior College and worked to get his bachelor’s degree at Mississippi State University, later to teach school at Carrollton, his hometown. At 31, he had come down with schizophrenia and suffered with the mental confusion of hearing voices in his head, plus experiencing other stresses in his cranium. In spite of the confusion he suffered from, his creative nature helped him to cope with the disorder. At the present time, he resides with Teresa in Emerald Cottage in Bayou Pigeon.
