About the authors:
Wain Myers is a native of Dayton, Ohio. He served in the United States Army in Bad Kissingen, Germany, where he received his call to the ministry. After his military career, he returned to the U.S. and began preaching at True Vine Missionary Baptist church, where he preached for over five years and was then introduced to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by his lovely wife Sebrina. He’s been an active member of the Church since 1995 and has served on his stake’s high council and as second counselor in the Genesis Group leadership.
Wain and Sebrina are the proud parents of seven amazing children; Le’Roy Jr., Isaiah (who recently returned from a full-time mission in the Louisiana Baton Rouge Mission), Bradford (and wife Paige), Quesley, Braxton, Spencer, and Ammon. Wain is a firm believer that no amount of success outside of the home can make up for failure inside the home. Check out his website at authorwainmyers.com.
Kelly L. Martinez has written about sports and entertainment for most of his professional career, though he has also dabbled in travel and tech articles. His writing has appeared in several national and regional publications, such as USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, Meridian Magazine, and the Deseret News. He comes from a long line of Mormon pioneers on his mother’s side and is of Hispanic, French, and Native American descent on his father’s. This is his first co-authorship and published book.
My review: From Baptist Preacher to Mormon Teacher by Wain Myers, Kelly L. Martinez
I found this to be a truthful book, a reminder to me of things I need to keep working on, a interesting book that I did not want to put down. I found myself crying quiet tears in a few spots. I learned some new things too. I appreciated Wain telling his story and sharing his testimony and love of Jesus Christ. The lessons he learned along the way.
This is a fast read that is full of life lessons Wain has learned. I like how he and his wife don;t think of your kids, mine and our kids. That is tough to do. In fact I want to ask now which were your wife's two children now. It is not important as long as your children all feel your love and support.
Constant with your discipline of the rules is very right thing but hard to do.
Wain shares his love of scriptures, prayers that were answered and special people along the way that made a difference in his life.
I like how he answers tough questions. I hope I can do that the right way too. With love and testimony not fighting. Too find out what the real issues are.
Thank you for being willing to write your story to uplift those who take the time and effort to listen and hear what you have learned that can help strengthen there lives too.
Your story made my day.
