“diving into destiny”

an Ebook written by Paul O’Brien

“I lay face down under two feet of water. From the corner of my eye, I could see the sun shimmering on the water surface above me. The last breath I'd inhaled before I hit the water was expiring rapidly. I wasn’t going to last much longer.”

in the summer of 1973, Paul O'Brien was a normal teen…

He had spent the entire morning swimming, and was on his way home when he met a group of friends going back out to the same swimming spot where he had just left. A few hours later, Paul plunged headfirst into the shallow water, ramming his head into the sand bottom. Immediately, he was paralyzed. For a couple of agonizing minutes, he lay motionless in the water. He had crushed his C5 vertebrae.

From that day on, Paul O’Brien was a quadriplegic.

How do you recover from life-changing devastation? Where is God when your dreams are forcibly removed from you? What happens when all that is familiar to you is taken away? What happens when all your resources and your best efforts aren’t near enough for what you need? Paul discovered answers to all of these questions and more.

in this candid ebook, paul shares his journey of Faith and perseverance.

He also unpacks the incredible transforming message of ‘Christ as Life.’
