Building Redemption is about the design and construction of a speedboat, and even more about the story that put a boat in my path. The idea of building a boat was not really laid out in advance, so it could not be anticipated directly. Neither could it be rushed. Around a half century passed as the parts of this puzzle started coming together. Eventually, a God-given gift combined with special opportunities, a sense of curiosity and adventure, faith, study, and learning new life skills all figured into the process.
This is my hope – to redeem life experiences, creating something of beauty.
