I’ve known Pastors Ricky and Cyd Texada for two decades, only to discover in reading his story – I didn’t know him at all! There are songs in this book for weeping and songs for rejoicing. You’ll do both as I did."

"From the moment I opened this book I experienced the liberating presence of God as I laughed, cried and worshiped. No doubt many comforting answers will slip from heaven and accompany the reader in the painful and beautiful saga of Ricky Texada’s journey – Oh, for grace to trust Him more."

"The redemptive story of Ricky and Cyd Texada has challenged me to realize how God is sovereignly in charge of even the disappointments of life. God has done a miracle and thrust the Texadas into fruitful pastoring after devastating disappointment. If God can bring together such a "dynamic duo" from the brink of devastation, what can He do for you to turn your "mourning into joy?" Read this book and let God open a new window of opportunity in your heart: "the best is yet to come!""

"MY BREAKING POINT, GOD’S TURNING POINT is all about Hope and the fulfillment of Jeremiah 29:11 “I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for” (MSG). The image we have of ourselves and our future is not always what God has planned. Pastor Ricky and Cyd are very real and transparent in telling their story of tragedy to triumph. They show us the importance of trusting in God when it does not seem practical or realistic. It is a book about finding the strength to get up one more time than you fall and knowing you will make it."

I believe this book will be a "go to" gift for everyone you know that has taken a big hit in life and needs encouragement."
