Read full description of the books:
In Forest Gump, Sally Fields says, "Life is like a box of chocolates; you never know what you're gonna get."
MI VIDA is like a Latino Forest Gump story. However, it is the true-life story of José Harris: his challenging childhood; Army enlistment as a cook but eventually ending up a Paratrooper, Airborne Ranger then Green Beret; obtaining and losing success, and ultimately finding out what matters most in life.
Around 56 A.D., the apostle Paul wrote the Corinthian Christians about the importance of faith, hope and love.
Harris takes the reader along on his life's journey . . . on the road to finding peace, love and happiness. Along the way, he works to strengthen his faith in God and his hope for the future.
At the end of the book, the reader may ask the question that Harris asks himself throughout, "Who Am I?" The reader may discover the answer, and find out today's meaning and importance of the three attributes that the apostle Paul wrote about, 2000 years ago.
