Inserts from "The Devil's Playground" by Dutchess & Walter (Chris) Taylor (Non-Fiction)

~CHRIS~ ​I must say that reading what Dutchess (Pearl) wrote was truly difficult for me at times, because there were things that made me feel like a complete animal.  Yet, I shouldn't have been surprised at anything she wrote because I know what kind of man I was all the time.  But reading and hearing the truth is never easy.  Nevertheless, I was able to get over the past and move forward with God's love and grace, knowing that my life was changing and I would become the way the Lord meant it to be.  This was indeed a true healing process for me.  My wife had worked for so long and hard to help me change, but what was more important to her was that I became a child of God.  My love for God has gone from zero to a million, and Dutchess was happier about that then she as about me becoming a good husband, friend, lover, and partner...
​**********
~DUTCHESS~ My family was warning me that I was making a big mistake by being with Chris, so I never told them what my life was really  like during the bad years.  But now it's completely different, and I'm proud of my husband and marriage.  Actually our marriage now is better than the marriages of some of my family and friends.  It's wonderful how God and His love can change us and make all things new and allow us to appreciate the bigger picture of His plan for our lives...
​**********
~CHRIS~ Those in my family who read this book weren't surprised at all by my actions in the beginning of my relationship with Dutchess.  They pretty much knew what kind of a dog I was and what my way of think was, but what really surprised them was the big change that came over me and how I gave my life to Christ and how I became a better man in so many ways...
​**********
~DUTCHESS~ My mom was a sweet, calm lady.  She knew things weren't always the way I led everyone to think.  But being a faithful, loving mother she never said anything.  She just prayed always for Chris and I, and  let God take care of the entire situation.  She was always there when I needed encouragement and prayer.  Many times she was my rock.  Her prayers gave me strength and courage to keep going.  As for my children, none of them have read this book, even though all of them know of it.  But one thing is for sure, my relationship with each of them and my grandchildren has grown stronger over the last few years.  One of my sons has become a Christian.  He, his family and I worship together.  Another promise God has fulfilled for me.  One day all of my dear sons will serve the Lord...

Insert from "Women Of Faith: God's Word" by Walter Chris Taylor (Fiction)
Three hours had passed since Pee Wee, Jump Shot, and Theresa left for the store.  Loretta wasn't worried, but knowing that Theresa was with a mad man didn't make her feel really comfortable either.  She knew God would protect her, but yet she also wanted Theresa to hurry back to them as well.  As she was thinking, she heard the sound of a phone ringing and almost jumped out of her skin.  She ran to the bottom of the stairs to see if Pretty Boy would come rushing out, but he didn't.  Instead he did something that caught her off guard.  Pretty Boy called out, "Mrs. Taylor, I'm more than sure you're at the bottom of the stairs, and yes that was them.  They're on their way back!" He yelled.  "Thank you!" She yelled back to the young man, then she dropped to her knees to thank the Lord.  Once Loretta opened her eyes she was surprised to find Janet kneeling beside her, and praying right along with her.  After they had finished, they smiled at each other.  They knew all was well without even having to ask...
