Sergeant Mike McGrew, 30 yr. veteran cop; foot/car/motorcycle patrol, K-9 Sergeant, Major Crimes Homicide detective, Hostage negotiator and amusingly his most precarious duty, President of the Police Officers Association.

In this book/his life, Mike stands face to face with evil and routinely deals with the unthinkable range of human carnage perpetrated by, or on, fellow human beings and the boomerang effect on those First Responders having to deal with this chaos. Predictably Mike’s personal life begins to spiral downwards as he takes on the burdens of the trauma experienced by himself and those victims he vowed to protect; his failed marriages, struggle with alcohol, death and addiction of his son(s) and to top it off a deadly prognosis of advanced colon cancer for himself.

But here’s the thing, Mike discovers for himself and others, hope out of hopelessness, grace for the unforgivable, freedom for those in bondage, comfort for the brokenhearted, and a peace that surpasses all understanding. Mike’s testimony of the power of God in his life will inspire anyone seeking a deeper level of strength, meaning, hope and love in their life.

“Listening to Sgt. Mike McGrew’s story changed my life. I grew up believing in Jesus, but over the years lost sight of God’s sovereignty in my life. I left the church and became skeptical of people who called themselves Christians. Hearing Mike talk about his relationship with God, inspired me to rethink how I approached my own faith. I began actively seeking God, and He answered in a big way. Through Mike’s testimony, God revealed His grace, love and power in a real and relatable way. Hearing this testimony has been impactful in many ways during my spiritual walk.”
