Small Beginnings

SMALL BEGINNINGS. “Great things can come from small beginnings,” McLeod says. “They happened to me, and they can happen to you, too.” At some point in their lives, many people feel they have been rejected and forgotten. They may see friends and family go on to lead fulfilling lives and believe such a life will never come to them. Their lives are filled with a sense of rejection, whether real or imagined. Author Dennis R. McLeod understands that feeling and shares it in Small Beginnings. Because of the verbal abuse he suffered as a child and being told he would never amount to anything, plus a marriage and divorce at the age of thirty-three, he suffered very badly from rejection. This is the story of the journey that started at the age of fifteen when God started training him for the future and the work God had for him to do.
