Path To Truth: The Ray Stanton Story by Pastor Ray Stanton:

5 Stars: His Experiences Brought A Smile To My Face!

I love reading memoirs and enjoyed reading Path To Truth: The Ray Stanton Story. Some of his experiences brought a smile to my face, as I too grew up in rural, small-town America where children have the freedom to roam. I would be willing to bet that one or more of his short life experiences will draw you back into your own memories of childhood, teen years and young adulthood.

The author begins with his first childhood memory, living in a small camper, trailer on the edge of a field. From there he takes us on a journey to The Opal Parker Place, The Miscarriage, The Tractor, The Kehrt Farm, The Move, The New Shoes, New Farm / New School, A Little Down Time on the Farm, The Measles / Chicken Pox / Mumps, The Skunk, The Lost Horse, Another Sibling, Milk Cows, Falling off the Tractor: My First Encounter with God, The Meeting in the Hay Field, Things Start to Change, A New Brother, The Ice Trip Down River, The Stanton’s Get Guns, Putting Hay in the Barn, Hunting to Survive, Hauling Corn, A Horse of Our Own Acting like Men, The Farm Sells, The New School, The Cows, We’re In the Money, The Creek and Learning to Swim, The Old German Lady, The Bull, Football Practice, Summer Break is Too Short, Dave’s Family Moves, Dad Has a Heart Attack, The New Place in Town, The New School in Town, A Business Enterprise, The Fish Fry, Granddad Intervenes, The Harley, Summers Spent Talking to God, My First Car, DeMolay, Dad Gets a Motor, I Will Graduate, Married Life, Selling Insurance, Pickled Eggs, Burgers and Beer, The Blizzard of ’77, and Studying the Rich Folk.

I share the author’s story headings inside this memoir, because I believe after reading the titles, you will find something of interest that you would like to read. I have a couple of favorites. Growing up where I could roam freely on foot and travel great distances on my bike, I remember exploring everything in hopes of finding hidden treasures. The author’s story ‘Were In The Money’ was extremely interesting.

I enjoyed getting to know this author and I enjoyed some of the photos that he shared in this book. I found his ‘Studying the Rich Folk’ enlightening. His title ‘Path To Truth’ is a good fit, because he searched for and found truth. God spoke to Ray at age 27, when he was holding a gun to his throat. This book is a testimony to God’s goodness and saving grace.
