Dedications & Acknowledgements
I dedicate “Change Your Shirt. Change The World!” to the following:
To my Heavenly Father,
Who called me out of darkness into His marvelous light.
To my wife Melody and my children Nikolas, Cassidy, and Kyle,
Your love energizes me every day!
To my Mom and Dad, Margaret and Don Kennett,
Who told me I could accomplish pretty much whatever I put my mind, sweat, and persistence to—and turned out to be right.
To my brothers and sister, Al, Tom, and Cynthia,
Who have all had a hand in my life and success.
To the amazing people of “Team Kerusso”,
Who put their hands to the plow with me and made my vision their own.
To my Pastor, Gary Hayhurst,
Who for over 25 years has taught me about my Lord Jesus and our loving Heavenly Father. You’ve inspired me to reach for all God wants me to be. I’m forever grateful to you my friend!
As I say later in this book, there’s no such thing as a self-made man – similarly, there’s no such thing as an author who produces a book by themself. I am certainly no exception to either of these statements.
My special thanks go out to:
- My 25 Artist and Author friends who selflessly lent their names, time, and words to this book’s devotions. Thank you for believing in the cause of T-shirt evangelism!
