Satanist … thief … rebel … arsonist …
junkie … convicted felon … all of these describe the days of his pre-teen and
early teenage years.
Converted … earnest seeker … servant of the Savior …
clean and sober … Bible student … Christian … husband … dad … all of these
describe author Wyatt Allen as he is today.
God used a 20-year prison sentence to get his
attention, but once God had his heart, Wyatt has kept moving forward in serving
the God of the heavens who pulled him from the wretchedness of his pit. Today,
he continues to seek and serve His Savior as a Bible worker and evangelist.

through the strongholds of my life, it would never be the same again."
