Nick Costas, having coped with and overcome his rough upbringing in abusive foster homes and on the streets of L.A., having undergone a spiritual transformation, and having become a loving and passionate father of a family of seven, continues to inspire those around him but with newfound struggles. Nick now struggles to accept and perfect his newfound fame as an author and a touring speaker while also trying to build a safe haven home for boys. And he struggles to balance these new gigs with his health and with the wants and needs of his ever-changing family.
Join Nick on his journey of inspiration as he transitions from a successful music producer and a loving and spiritual father of a family of seven to an inspiration to those around him. Follow him as he inspires others through his speaking engagements and his love and passion for his wife Barb, his five children, and scripture. Follow him as he directly and indirectly guides his friends and his children through their own courtships, love lives, and marriages. And follow him as he works to build a Home for Boys as a place where struggling youths like he was can have the same opportunities for redemption and success that he experienced.
If you enjoyed the stories of personal redemption, spiritual transformation, and loving couples, parents, and families contained in Book 1 of the In Your Arms series (Nick’s Choice), then you will enjoy continuing to follow Nick as he uses those stories to inspire others in Book 2 of the series (Nick’s Heart). The story of Nick Costas, as told in this book, is here to continue inspiring and guiding you in your own personal, parental, and family life.
