Author Biography

I had no idea that I would be writing this book. It only came about because I had many that would ask me for more details about what happened or tell us some things that has happened since. I have had the pleasure of sharing my testimony with the TV show 100 Huntley in Toronto Canada, Houston, Texas, several visits to Atlanta including AtlantaLive Tv show, cnn.com interview and dozens of churches, civic organizations across the southeast. It wasn't what happened to me in the accident itself but how God was able to use me to share the message of more love-less hate, the power of prayer (I had prayer warriors recognized in all 50 states and 5 countries).

The Night That Changed Our Lives: The Devil Pushed Me In A Pit But God Pulled Me Out by Kelly Garner is the story of what happened to the author one winter’s night and his awakening to life, to gratitude, and to God in an astonishing and wonderful way. His story about discovering a deeper faith in God, the test, the distress and helplessness his family went through is the story of survival. A man who went out one night to help and thought he would never come back after being severely injured and in the freezing cold for 14 hours. Kelly’s story of faith and will power is testimony to his deep faith and determination. Kelly is a living example of how people react when life brings challenges and how they respond to them. Kelly tells readers how the Devil pushed him into a ditch and God pulled him out.

Kelly’s story is an inspiration to all readers and his story of struggles turning into a positive outcome once his rehabilitation period ended is encouraging and uplifting. The narration about the author’s harrowing experiences is palpable to readers but then it is an example of how miracles can happen, and there is no doubting God’s hand, grace, and protection. Kelly’s journey of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual survival, perseverance, and strength to healing and thriving will keep readers astonished. The author is honest and straightforward when it comes to sharing his life and ordeals with readers, and the black and white photographs connect readers with the author and his situation. It is a story that reiterates the power of God and how He will answer prayers if done with faith.
