About the Author
Hi, my name is Dave Butcher and I grew up living with grandparents that drug me to church each week. As a teenager, I decided that all those biblical stories sounded like the fairy tales I learned as a kid. When I was able, I left the church and waded out into the world on my own. I became a drinker, a liar, a cheat, and a thief. Eventually I landed in the Los Angeles County Jail after getting fired from my job "for reasons of honesty." I had been arrested for drunk driving. After a week, I was convicted of reckless driving and released with time served. After my release from jail, I felt like my entire world had fallen apart. While reading a book, I had a spiritual experience and my life changed dramatically. In the years that followed, I read a number of self-help books and researched the Bible. I eventually was able to get my life together. My wife and I went on the road with a musical ministry for several years. As things progressed, I wrote a few articles and people told me I should write a book. Handling Strife is the result.
