For those of you who have no clue who I am, my name is Gene Brode, Jr. and I struggle with sin. **Voices saying, Hi Gene!** The older I get, the more I can identify with the words of Paul when he said he was the chief of sinners (1 Timothy 1:15). Life with sin is ugly. My life with sin is really ugly. I’ve been prone to wander a lot over the past several years.

But I got sick of it, so I wrote me a book is what I did.

For several months in late 2015 I hand wrote what I then called Essential Meditations for Backsliders. I chose 40 different Bible topics and some applicable Scriptures and preached to myself in writing. The result was a renewal of my love and devotion for God.

During that process I decided that others might benefit from this book as well. So sometime last year I began typing it out and writing some additional chapters. I also began planning some other Essential Meditations books that I needed to read.

Essential Meditations Volume 1: 40 Devotions for Backsliders is currently being edited and my plan is to have it available soon on Amazon. In the meantime, why not check out the Essential Meditations Facebook page.
