Read an Excerpt from "Through the Valley Love Endures" by Eddie David Santiago

Through the Valley Love Endures

What if death came for you today? Would you be ready?
Forced to face his own mortality, Eddie Santiago fought to stay alive in a broken world. His incredible journey through heartbreak, abuse, and adversity left him with one truth: every life makes a difference.
This is the true and compelling story of his supernatural quest through the valley of death, doubt, and darkness. Eddie provides a passionate story that will capture the attention of even the toughest skeptics.
Angels, demons, heaven, hell, Jesus and the devil: are they fiction, or are they more real than anything else in the world?

Read an Excerpt:

One day I met a girl from another high school by the name of Mindy, and when she shook my hand, I saw glimpses of her life.  It didn’t happen all of the time, but when it did, I felt I needed to share.
            “Listen, I know this is going to sound weird, especially since we’ve just met, but God loves you.  You don’t need to keep giving yourself away.  Jesus is enough, and I spent my life running from that love.”
            Tears formed in her eyes. “How do you know how I feel?” Mindy asked.
            “I don’t, but God does.  He wants nothing more than to be with you and heal your heart.  What I am about to tell you is very important.  You’re going to meet a new guy, and he is going to make you feel good about yourself.  You’re going to want to leave with him, but you don’t know him.  If you leave with him, he will hurt you,” I told her.
            By this point Mindy was weeping.  “Who are you?  Are you some sort of angel or something?”
            I began to chuckle, because I was no saint by any means.  I had simply reached her by sharing God’s love for her. “I’m just a messed up guy who was saved by God’s love.  Jesus can save you, too.  Just ask Him.”
I didn’t know how reaching people for Christ worked, so I just said what came to me.
