Cary Holbert, President of Dirty Feet Ministries Inc, dba Jonahbooks.com, Simple-To-The-Point tomes (BA, MDIV, SPHR, SHRM-SCP, Triple P Accreditation, (former Child and Adult Protective Certification) was born in Milton, West Virginia, the oldest of 6 children. For 29 years he struggled for a sense of purpose and meaning to life while just going through the motions of living. Darkness has consumed me and hopelessness is my heart. I long to cry, but death is my master and liberty beyond reach. I was a prisoner by choice with no key to unlock my shackles. I did not call for help nor cared. Then from a distance while working as a Business Manager in the Automobile business in 1986 I heard a sound like the blowing of wind rustling through the trees. The rushing wind penetrated deep into my soul. It was the Son of Man who saw me in despair. The light of the gospel has come to awaken my dead soul. The screams of death have left me and the Holy Spirit has taken up residence. Life has overtaken me and I now see the Son of God, my Christ, my Savior and what I could not do He has done. My soul is overcome with joy and expressed with shouts of praise that shatter glass. My being is now an offering for His service. Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me! I finally see! "The light of the world" has opened my mind to the truth of existence and purpose for living. Cary soon went on to complete the Master's of Divinity program at Columbia Biblical Seminary and then ordained by the PCA and now a Minister of the Word in the Christian Reformed Church and on the staff of The Garden Worship Center.
