Donald Spatafora, who in retirement finally answered God's call to write, has completed his new book, "Gifts Opened and Shared: Along the Paths of Life": a stirring memoir that explores the gifts and blessings granted to the author throughout his life after reconnecting with and refocusing his attention on the Lord.
"Life's journey is not always smooth and straight," writes Spatafora. "Sometimes we experience a path that is anything but. Unexpected disappointments cause us to make wrong choices, and we are led down a path that sometimes leads us to self-destruct.
"At times, our path is smooth, and by all appearances, we seem to have it all together. Everything we do seems to turn out good and to our advantage. We are only fooling ourselves.
"My journey has been and continues to be full of ups and downs. There have been times when I have been taken so far out of my comfort zone that I know only God could have been holding me up and directing me."
Spatafora continues, "Each of our lives are testimonies; gifts to be shared with others. God does not want us to leave them sitting on a shelf unwrapped. He wants each of you reading this book to unwrap your gifts and share them with others just as I have done. You will be surprised at the number of people touched by them. Many lives may even be changed.
"As you read these times when the power of prayer helped me and others, it is my hope you will receive an uplifting word that will speak to your heart and keep you on the right path as you share your gifts. Power is released through testimonies, and this book is my testimony to those reading it."
Donald Spatafora's new book is a thought-provoking read that reveals it is never too late to turn towards God and strengthen one's bond with him. Through sharing his life's story, Spatafora crafts an expertly paced testament to the goodness one can do when one embraces their gifts from the Lord.
