Death Was My Next Step

A Child Raised by the Streets

by Dixie Pebworth

Book Image Not Available
Overview
"I sentence you to a total of eighty years in the Department of Corrections. " The judge struck the desk with his gavel. Considered hopeless by the court system and labeled by society as worthless, twenty-four-year-old Dixie Pebworth was banished to a prison yard that was labeled in the 1980's as a "gladiator school." Odds were that Dixie would never get out of prison alive. But, God looked at his heart. Following a series of miracles, Dixie walked out of prison a free man. The greatest miracle is how God took a child raised by the streets - who had not been fortunate enough to have been taught morals and values - and transformed him spiritually, mentally, and physically into a man who is reaching thousands with the good news of God's love. If you feel that you or someone you love is in a hopeless situation, this book will give you hope. If you feel abandoned, this book will help you know you're not alone. If you wonder if people can ever "really" change, this book will surprise and inspire you to believe that God can change anyone whose heart seeks after Him. THIS STORY MAY CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

About the author
Pastor Dixie Pebworth is truly one of a kind - a living testimony of God's desire and power to dramatically change lives. From a car thief and burglar as a juvenile, to a prominent drug dealer as a young adult, to a minister of the Gospel and Pastor to those Jesus would call "The least of these," Pastor Dixie's life was changed when an old Baptist preacher burst into his jail cell proclaiming "I'm here to tell you, God loves you!" Dixie says "I knew I was a sinner on my way to hell that would not have been news to me, but no one had ever told me the God of this universe could possibly love me." From that moment, the transforming power of Jesus Christ through His Holy Spirit began to change the drug dealer into the man so many know today simply as Pastor Dixie! Pastor Dixie is the founding and Sr. Pastor of the more than 400 member God's Shining Light Church in Tulsa, OK and the CEO of Freedom Ranch, Inc. and Director of Operations of Wings of Freedom, one of America's most successful sober-living, faith-based substance abuse recovery support programs.
