How I Got Off That Tree Limb is based on an experience that I had when I was 22 years of age and a preacher that I had worked with in a revival in Little Rock, Arkansas said to me, “Get off that Limb” He explained to me that if I wanted to make an apple pie I would have to get the apples off the tree to make a delicious Apple Pie. This book shares early beginnings of my childhood. It takes you through my journey of getting off of the tree limb. I have had lots of highs and lows in my life but I have learned how to push myself forward. And today I continue to push forward to be the very best that I can be and try every day to make a positive difference in myself and others.
