Samuel Williams Sr
Contemporary Christian Artist, I was given the inspiration to begin the thought process of writing a book to address misunderstood relationships, since I, in my past struggled with relationships. After teaching, counseling and pasturing so many marriages and relationship that were consumed with problems, the Lord put on my heart to put my thoughts and teachings in a book form. A straightforward, and yet shy person, I teach and witness to the Spirit of God that brings truth to any situation based on facts of the Holy Bible. I am , a self-taught bass guitarist and pianist who depend upon the Spirit of the Lord to inspire me as a songwriter and musician, I depend upon the Spirit of God to lead me in writing about His Words. I have been a writer, in my heart, since 1997 as I became a Pastor of a congregation. As a untrained and undiscovered writer, I was called into the ministry in 1987 to preach the Word of God. While being led by the Spirit of God two years ago, this book was birthed and without the assistance of any nor with guidance from a professionally trained writing instructor or tutor, the Lord was able to anoint and bless me to write and arrange every word of my debut book.
