Painting a picture of the struggles he endured and finding hope through them is what you are sure to find in his first two books.  Joshua has given many copies of his books away to warriors in aspiration of bringing hope to them.

Joshua served his country with honor and courage. During his military service, he faced life-altering injuries that left him paralyzed. Despite the physical challenges, Joshua's spirit remained unbreakable.
