As a child, Kehl experienced a tumultuous upbringing as a result of his father being sent away to fight during World War II. With no father present during his childhood, his mother had no other option than to bring Kehl and his siblings to work with her at a bar.

Readers will follow his challenging story and witness how God never left Kehl’s side. In fact, with God’s help, Kehl persevered and found his way to an incredible future full of love and family. The author’s riveting biography boldly and transparently shares his dark past, his wonderful present and his limitless future. It’s an inspiring story that no reader will soon forget.

When asked who his book’s target audience would be, Kehl said, “People whose past is keeping them in their own prison.”

He has been happily married for sixty-two years and has three children, twelve grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. Kehl continues to encourage prisoners in the South California area with his message of hope.
