Author: Matthew Rucker
This book consists of true short stories that happened throughout my life. It was written as a gift to my 13 year old granddaughter, Alyssa. In the ministry I found out that very few grandchildren know their grandparents. These stories will hopefully help Alyssa to know her PeePaw. I have given a broad view of stories from the funny to the sad. I have also tried to give some insight to help her in her life as well as you the reader, when similar situations occur. The book is about my faith, my love of people, and that I was a bit of a rascal. So enjoy my life stories and maybe gain some wisdom as you travel life’s road. God Bless.
