Embraced - A New Book Co-authored by Jordan Jantz

 We are all writing the story of our life. We want to know what it’s about. What are its themes and which theme is on the rise? People demand of it something deeper, or richer, even more substantive. People want to know where this book is taking them and where they are headed.
Not to spoil our heart-embracing ending, but I want to ensure that when the ending comes, it won’t be shallow. I will have done something life-transforming for others through this book. Honestly, I mean particularly, in this book, Embraced, I will not have squandered everyone’s time. This book is about that life-transformation we all want for ourselves. I began this book because I hit that point in my life. I became intrigued by people who had unearthed their true calling …or those who were at least willing to try. 

In this book, Embraced, nothing seems braver to me than facing up to one’s own identity and filtering out the chatter that tells us to be something we’re not.  In this book I hit on an incredible well-spring of honesty. Complete strangers opened their lives and their homes to me, confessing honesty and events that had never been revealed to ordinary people. By that I mean they did not have the resources available to them, the resources or the character traits that gave them an uncommon advantage in pursuing a better life.
 I’m not an expert of any sort. I have not one credential and nothing to speak about in the academic department, just what you all read about from the book produced by author and owner of Jewel of the West Publishing, Jewel Adams, Out of the Closet and Into the Light, and the live video produced by the President of Northstar International and Voices of Hope, Ty Mansfield. These are the only things I did that ever can be considered helpful additions to the human world we share. I did learn from working on this book, Embraced, that it is the hard times that change the course of our lives. In this book I reveal these moments to show my own fallibility. This book is far different from what I originally envisioned. It reflects what I’ve found not what I predicted. This book does not follow a conventional outline because as you all know, real life is not conventional. Each experience can become embraced in our life.
So this book is to unearth the psychological secrets that haunt us. It is not organized by industry or personality type. It is not a travelogue. It is about misconceptions and fears. When people heard this book’s title, the most common question I got asked was, “So is your book about your life, or about careers?” and I’d laugh and warn them not to get trapped by semantics. I answer, “It’s about people who’ve dared to be honest with themselves." When reading it, I know you will become embraced.

About Out of the Closet Into the Light
After living a life of abuse, abandonment and homosexuality, Jordan Jantz made the ultimate choice. Leaving his old life behind, Jordan came to know and understand God's love for him, as well as discover his own part in the eternal plan. But this book isn't just about his Christian conversion and lifestyle change, it is also about all the things he suffered that helped to bring him to this point. It's about everything he was, everything he is, and everything he is on his way to becoming. Simply put, this is the story of his journey from the painful, cold darkness into the light. A portion of the proceeds from Out of the Closet Into the Light will be donated to The Christmas Box International to support abused and neglected children.
