Very interesting reading, especially if you are a fan of the old Lawrence Welk shows. He was probably one of the most normal, clean cut, wholesome young men you will ever know. Mr. Nice Guy! Why then did he battle loneliness and despair? Why did a thread of restless discontent weave itself through the fabric of his life? Questions nagged him through his early school days and on into high school where he began to discover his muscial talent.
He rapidly advanced in the US Army, but still struggled with his own worth. Who was he really? Would his life make a difference - would he amount to anything? When the army sent him to Panama a friend invited him ot a local church to hear Major Ian Thomas speak - and with the touch of God's Spirit. Tom found destiny. Many ups and downs followed that night of commitment, but he sensed a steady guidance of God as he worked toward his dream of being a professional singer - a dream that burst into full bloom when friends introduced him to Lawrence Welk on a golf coast in North Dakota. The rest is history. This is his story, one he shares openly and honestly. Opening his heart to all of us about how God has worked in his life. You love the Lawrence Welk show it is a must read!
