Paralegal Goes From Despair to Ripley's Believe It or Not

Terry Dwight Coleman, a paralegal in Colorado, released his first book, DON'T GIVE UP, DON'T GIVE IN, with the message that no matter your background or problems, God can use you to his glory.

Coleman draws from his own struggles, and he believes that the book will inspire those who seek to overcome their troubles. Abandoned by his mother and raised by his grandmother and aunts, Coleman is no stranger to despair. By the time he reached adulthood, he felt he had no purpose in life, and he turned to alcoholism to fill a void. Fortunately, a friend introduced him to church, and Coleman's conversion gave his life new meaning and direction.

Coleman, who in 2005, sang a record-breaking 849 church hymns for 40 hours 17 minutes, at the age of 54 to bring awareness to the plight of the homeless, has vowed to donate twenty percent of his royalties to four different charities that help the homeless.
