You Can't Change Your Past

Reggie: You Can't Change Your Past, but You Can Change Your Future, an autobiography by Reggie Dabbs is a good read. Reggie started life with the deck stacked against him – he was born because his Mom needed money to feed her two kids and had sex. Reggie was conceived for $20. Then, Reggie's Mom asked Reggie's adopted parents to take care of him. A professor in college asked Reggie to accompany him to a conference and tell them his story. Reggie's voice and scars became the motivation for him to help children, even adults, know that someone loves them.
Reggie has a unique story of feeling alone and unwanted. Recounted through systematic chapters that he labels as things you should know, he shares the tough thoughts and feelings in this book, yet brings the hope of Jesus to those who may be in the same situation. Reggie weaves stories of life to tell us that our life is merely a collection of the choices we have made. Big Daddy, the name Reggie has given to our Heavenly Father, is truly a very important part of his life, and Reggie weaves stories from the Bible into this book. This book is very inspiring and will be a great addition to anyone's library!
