This book is a spiritual memoir that describes Fred Yocum's spiritual journey from his Quaker roots to his having the privilege of holding lay leadership positions in churches and ministries. It is the third volume of his trilogy entitled Finer than a Frog's Hair Split Three Ways. The earlier volumes covered his early life, family, travels (including his being in every county in the United States), and baseball (Way 1) and his railroad career (Volume II). While this book is part of a trilogy and is autobiographical; it can be useful to many readers on a standalone basis. Many of the issues involving modern evangelical life in America are covered in this book such as lay service both within the church and in parachurch ministries, giving, priorities, and reading The Bible and other spiritual books. Christians who consider themselves reformed will find his discussion of the works of Jonathan Edwards particularly interesting. Fred describes issues relating to his son's death in 1999 at the age of twenty-seven. He hopes that some will find his reflections on grieving to be comforting and useful. This book follows Fred through times when he has lived in various places, beginning in Aldan, Pennsylvania, through stops in Ohio, Iowa, Virginia, and Maryland to the present in which Fred lives in Brewer, Maine, with his wife, Caroline. He is presently a church elder and serves as a board member and treasurer of a Christian school.
