BIO: LUIS GONZALEZ
Luis González nació en La Habana, Cuba, donde pasó los primeros siete años de su vida. Su madre, viuda y con tres hijos, huyó del estado comunista con sus niños en remolque. La familia se mudo a Culver City, California, un municipio de Los Ángeles. Aunque lejos de su patria, Luis se dio cuenta que llevaba a Cuba en el alma, en su sangre cuando en el sexto grado, hizo un reporte sobre su país y ahí comenzó una relación amorosa con su patria que continúa hasta el dia de hoy. Desde la edad escolar primaria, Luis supo que llevaba la escritura en su sangre. "Siempre me ha gustado escribir, desde niño y supongo que siempre he sido autor independient. Cuando estaba en el tercer grado, después de sólo haber estado en este país un par de años, escribí dos cuentos. Uno se llama Las Zapatillas Mágicas, el otro, Los Delfines. Tomé hojas de papel que doblé y grapé, y no sólo escribí los cuentos, sino los ilustré e hice la portada y todo por ellos. Todavía tengo estos dos primeros libros míos, y ahora que miro hacia atrás me digo, “De verdad que siempre fui escritor, por lo menos en mi alma." Hasta hoy esos dos libritos siguen siendo dos de mis posesiones más preciadas. Luis estudio y se graduó de UCLA con licenciatura en literatura inglés y una concentración en composición y literatura española. A Luis le inspira profundamente y es conmovido por la política, la religión y las artes, cuales forman hilos de la tela en su escribir.
Luz: una novela que amarra esos tres componentes pero al estilo cubano.
Luis Gonzalez grew up in Culver City, California after his widowed mother of three fled Communist Cuba in the late 1960’s. Though he quickly assimilated into his new country and culture, and though he had no trouble mastering his new language, Cuba never left him. Cuba was always with him: inside him, driving him, calling him. He realized this more than ever when, in the 6th grade, he did his country report on Cuba and thus began a love affair with his homeland that continues to this day. It was only natural that Cuba should play a part in his writing, and even from grammar school age, Luis Gonzalez knew that writing was in his blood.
“I always loved to write, even as a young child, I guess I’ve always been an indie author because when I was in the third grade, after only having been in this country a couple of years, I wrote two stories. One was called The Magic Slippers, the other "The Dolphins." I took sheets of paper that I folded over and stapled and not only did I write the stories, but I illustrated them and made the cover and everything for them. I still have these two first books of mine and I look back on them now and wonder, wow, I really always was a writer. To this day those two items remain some of my most treasured possessions for they provide a glimpse into the passion that helped shape the person that I am, and if I’m anything, I’m passionate, and if I’m passionate about anything, it’s writing.”
As someone who is deeply moved and inspired by politics and religion and the arts, it was no wonder that he came up with the idea for his novel, Luz, a story that grapples with all three realms. These days Luis Gonzalez calls San Francisco home where he lives with his wife and two of four daughters.

My guest is KEVIN SPORT from the National televison show THE RIGHT PLACE WITH KEVIN SPORT that can be seen on RFD-TV!
"Am I in the right place?"
We all have asked that question more than once in our lives and not just when we are trying to go somewhere unfamiliar for vacation. Whenever we have ventured somewhere new in our lives and that place was not quite what we expected, we have experienced the doubt that causes us to ask the question: "Am I in the right place?" But who has the answer? Someone who has been there before.
Kevin Sport has been there before. From a young age, Sport knew music was at the core of his life. He dreamed of singing and songwriting his way into people's hearts through their radios. He packed up his guitar, left his hometown of Greenville, Alabama and headed to the country music capital of the world, Nashville, Tennessee. But after some time there, Sport's dream did not materialize as he expected. He began to doubt he was in the right place and even if he had the right dream. Defeated, he came back home to southern Alabama and threw his guitar under the bed. Sport explains, "I felt that I had missed my chance because of the direction my personal life and the harsh realities of the business side of music. I should move on to something else."
But the dream did not die, even though Sport may have denied it. While he pushed music away, music remained a part of him and his family and friends knew it. Consequently, those who knew and loved Sport, began to encourage him to fish out the guitar from under the bed and begin once again to share his music, not just with them, but also with anyone who finds enjoyment and meaning in music. Sport remembers, "People always asked me, ‘Are you still singing? Are you still pursuing music, and if not, then why?'"

Miguel brings you part 31 in his series about Hope Together in these end times.
Miguel Hayworth is the founder/director of the First Plumbline Apologetics which was established in 2001. Experiences within different denominations showed that much of what was going on in the churches was not oriented around the Bible. With this conviction Miguel Hayworth, and having seen so many people damaged by the unorthodox teachings of Christian groups, originally began his work with the intent of exposing false teachers within mainstream Christian circles.
