Six Years of Blogging and I Still Haven't "Give[n] Up"!

The Never Give Up blog is six years old.

I thought, among other things, that it might be useful for the promotion of my (then still fairly new) book Never Give Up: My Life and God's Mercy (which is still a good read, and you can order it HERE).

Six years later, the blog is much, much longer than the book (which had a terrific editor, whereas here we basically shoot from the hip). But it continues to be a worthwhile project, at least for me (it is, as I have remarked before, my writing "workshop"). It's also interesting for a few other folks too, from time to time, I would like to think. (?)
