In his story, it is when Donovan is taken to a public rehab facility that he realizes that he has hit a new low; “I knew this was not how I wanted to live. It was time to stop learning the hard way.” He realizes that, with the guidance of God, his life holds too much promise; “It was time to stop screaming out in uncontrollable rage, begging God to take me out of my misery. I knew life could be better, full of joy, hope, and promise.”
Today, Donovan’s life is radically different; he is a youth pastor and is married with two children. He reflects on the change that God has made in his life, “My life counts for something. I no longer have to do things the hard way.”
He reminds readers of someone else who learned the hard way: King David. Like many people stuck in the “rut lifestyle,” King David consistently made the wrong choices, failed to acknowledge that there was a problem, and got himself deeper and deeper into the rut that he had created by choosing Bathsheba and the immoral path.
For anyone who is struggling through their own rock bottoms and hard lessons, The Hard Way is a must-read. Donovan will undoubtedly save many young lives by saving them from learning things the hard way that he, King David, and many others have had to.
After a lifetime of struggling with inner demons, anger, and addictions, Jeremy Donovan encountered God in a rehab center and began the healing process. He has since gone on to become the youth pastor of Destiny Life church, a multi-campus church in the Tulsa, Oklahoma area. In 2008, he along with friend and ministry-partner, Matt Moore, founded“The SOZO Movement.” Sozo is a series of testimonies from everyday people sharing the love and power of Jesus Christ. Jeremy is highly involved in Master’s Commission, USA, the Bible College/Discipleship program he attended after coming out of a rehab program. His book, The Hard Way, has already received notable endorsements that include Matthew Barnett and The Dream Center, among others.
