Sommer-Floyd

 

If you look up “All American Girl” in the dictionary, chances are the definition will be accompanied by a picture of Sommer Floyd. Growing up in the Texas Hill Country, Sommer was an honor roll student, gifted athlete, beauty queen, and genuinely nice person. Voted “Class Favorite” and “Most Talented” by her high school classmates, she was the quintessential cheerleader, earning four individual high school All-American designations, and three All-Star Team National Championships. Attending college on a cheerleading scholarship, Sommer was designated a college All-American as a freshman, an almost unheard of accomplishment. She ran on the varsity track team, played tennis, showed livestock, participated in rodeos, earned her Deep Sea Diving certification…

Oh, and she sings and writes songs too.

While Sommer certainly has all the credentials as an All-American, she is also 100 percent human. She is the first to admit, she has made her share of mistakes.

“As a teenage girl, I made some poor choices that changed my life’s direction dramatically,” she confesses. One of those choices resulted in Sommer becoming a single mother at a young age. Broken-hearted and at the lowest point in her life, Sommer returned home to her loving, supportive family. She began to dig deep into God’s word, and discovered a fountain of acceptance and blessings

The transformation from everyone’s All-American to God’s empty vessel didn’t come quickly or easily for Sommer Floyd. But being forged in the refining fire of adversity can have a profound effect on a willing spirit. And the songs that emerge sound somehow sweeter, ring truer, and hold the capacity to scatter the darkness like a ray of light on a cloudy day.

Look for Sommer’s Debut Project “Ray of Light” Coming Soon

Dimas

 

On the streets of New York, darkness and violence reigned. Dimas “Daylight” Salaberrios began selling drugs when he was eleven years old, and by sixteen he had served his first stint at the notorious Rikers Island prison. Dimas saw only one way to survive: by reigning over the streets. He would be the richest, most powerful ruler in the hood . . . or die trying.

Today I have the privilege of speaking with former drug lord Dimas Salaberrios about his book STREET GOD, the true story of his dangerous journey through the underworld of crime, drugs, and almost certain death. It was an encounter with the real God that saved his life—and then made it even more dangerous; because that God sent Dimas back down the darkest streets he’d ever known—with others’ lives depending on it.

A dramatic, compelling memoir full of twists and turns, Street God delves deep into a world from which few ever emerge—and shows how a single spark of light can illuminate even the darkest existence.
