New Xulon Title--Humble Beginnings to a Lifetime of Service to God McCormick, Dishner share one man's experiences in the Great Depression and more

MAITLAND, Fla., Feb. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Co-authors, James McCormick and Melissa Dishner's new book, Growing Up On A Red Dog Road ($12.99, paperback, 9781626976436; $6.99, e-book, 9781626976443) is the riveting autobiography of a boy growing up in rural West Virginia during the Great Depression. Born to an alcoholic father, the future didn't seem promising, especially in the midst of an entire nation's financial collapse. However, God made a way, and miraculously brought salvation to every member in this young man's family—plus many more feats that exceed the imagination. This book is a picture of God glorified in James McCormick's life.

"[I hope that readers grasp] that God has plans for us beyond what we have ever imagined for ourselves. He is strongest when we are the weakest," states the author. "Our journeys through life are only made worthwhile through our relationship with Jesus Christ."
