“Izzy & the Hippies”: an inspiring book that shares the journey of Izzy, a young girl who imparts her faith and trust in Jesus Christ to a group of hippies. “Izzy & the Hippies” is the creation of published author Marty R. Martinez, a painter in San Diego County, a licensed painting contractor, and a track vehicle repairman in the Army National Guard.

Martinez shares, “This story is about a girl who lived near the beach during a time when there had been lots of change with our country, communities, and households. Some referred to this time as the Age of Aquarius. Despite all that was happening such as the anti-Vietnam War protests, Civil Right movements, drug abuse, Chicago 68, just to name a few, she was willing to be used by God to go reach out to a group of people with the gospel of Jesus Christ and pray for them.

“Izzy was a girl who was courageous. She loved Jesus with all her heart and was obedient to the call that she had on her life. Because she allowed God to use her life in a mighty way, it would start a revival among the hippies and those who had been to the Vietnam War. The love of her life would eventually come alongside her to reach out to the hippies, love them, and preach Jesus to them and to all who were willing to come and hear the gospel. God is still continuing their labor of love to this day.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Marty R. Martinez’s new book is a wonderful read that shows God’s boundless love for all, regardless of one’s philosophy in life.

Follow the resounding belief of Izzy as she shares her love for Christ that blessed the lives of a group of free-spirited hippies.
