In this interactive workbook, explore new hope for rising above the circumstances of your life.
S. Todd Townsend knows the power of the hope that keeps him getting up.
Raised in inner-city Philadelphia in a home with a loving mother but an abusive stepfather, S. Todd experienced the hard life, the cons, and the law of the streets. “I was a criminal. I was a rabble rouser, a car thief, and a home robber—nothing more than a common thug,” he says. When he heard the gospel, S. Todd surrendered control of his life to God, and his life was transformed. Now a pastor and educator, as well as a rap and hip-hop musician, he uses his life experience to illustrate the necessity of getting back up and staying up.
This companion volume to S. Todd Townsend’s Getting Up from Being Down provides practical steps to help readers get up from a down lifestyle through dynamic personal stories, Bible study material with interactive questions, and original raps. Designed for individual or group study, each entry has space for personal responses, and includes a prayer list, prayer, and a verse for the day.
