Kansas City, MO – Marvin Faulkner is the author of Letter to God, published in August 2019, a story of struggling to stay in the light without letting darkness overcome us.
“Letter to God is a memoir of a common person, myself,” says Faulkner. “I laid myself out there, the good, bad, and ugly of my life, with the overall theme that the power of love can transcend pain. The book expresses our deeper need for love to surpass the temptation to be bitter despite what life has thrown at us, and that we can choose love over bitterness, resentment, remorse, hatred.”
Letter to God recounts the passing of Faulkner’s wife from cancer and his family’s journey toward emotional and spiritual healing.
“My vision for this book is it can be a life-changer for thousands of people,” says Faulkner. “I think it's a powerful message. I found it during a period of intense meditation. There were times I felt like I had some spiritual guidance helping me along the writing of the message."
Letter to God follows a shorter book Faulkner wrote in 2017 entitled Days Gone By, a collection of humorous short stories based on true-to-life experiences with spiritual overtones.
“I once wore the uniform of a United States Army officer, Medical Corps, but what I'm proud of is the uniform of a single parent and that I had the privilege to raise three beautiful children. I feel blessed and proud while I was here that I was able to get a grasp on what love was and meant. And because of that I feel confident that when I take my last breath, I'll hear ‘Well done.’"
