I still remember seeing the Youtube clip of Ted Williams in 2011. The homeless man with the golden voice. I remember praying for him and hoping that the opportunities coming his way would take him off the streets. I have been wanting to read this book because I have wanted to know what happened to him. I will admit, it was a difficult read. There were times I wasn’t sure I was going to finish it. Most of the book is about his life on the streets, and it is not a pretty story. It took him a long time to get clean, even after the fame, and it made for some hard reading. However, this is a story of redemption, of faith, and of success. It is inspiring to me to think about all that Ted went through and how he is finally living a safe and productive life. It goes to show that anyone can be saved, and reading this story gave me a boost to believe that things will be okay if we keep trying.
