In this amazing story, Jeremy Reynalds, who founded and runs New Mexico’s largest emergency homeless shelter and was once homeless himself, shares how he rose from the despair of homelessness to the pinnacle of academia, earning a doctorate in intercultural education at Biola University in La Mirada, California.

In addition, the book contains stories of a number of people who have fallen on hard times and have gotten back on their feet again with the help of the Lord at Joy Junction.

Jeremy’s story has challenged me to pay more attention to the homeless among us. I pray that his life will likewise encourage you.

Ultimately, the book offers hope, reflects on the power of kindness and serves as a catalyst for changing lives.
