"The O.A.K. Ministry was born one day when God showed me a simple truth through an act of kindness on the side of a road. Since then, it has become my mission to share that truth with as many as I can. My means were limited but God's are not. He gave me the ability to string a few words together and create poetry. From that poetry the idea of writing this book was created." -Jim Clements
A native New Yorker, Jim Clements spent his early adult life as a carefree biker. The same year his first son Patrick was born, his lifestyle took an abrupt change after a motorcycle accident left him with a debilitating head injury. Four years later, after regaining the use of his left arm and leg, he began his career as a firefighter and he and his wife, Joan, welcomed their second son, Christopher. The death of Jim's father and the model of his faith put Jim on a search for the God he had long ignored. Now as a retired firefighter/paramedic with an R.N. degree, he lives in Ormond Beach, Florida with his wife Joan. He longs to share his faith and love for the God he now knows.
