Marty Cole began his journey Sept. 17, 1953, when he was born in Santa Monica, California.
At six years old, he entered military school, and from age six to eleven, he was verbally, physically, emotionally, mentally, and psychologically abused. Sometimes, he was beaten so badly, he bled.
When he returned home at age fifteen, it was tough to adjust to home life after nine years away. He asked his father if he could get his own apartment. “No problem, son. I’ll get you your own place to live,” he said. And he did.
Finally, Cole started living, enjoying the sexual freedom of the late 1960s and early 1970s to the fullest. Life was amazing.
But when he was sixteen and eighteen years of age, two different men raped him. Later, he was diagnosed with cancer. He sought counseling, and what he learned is that he needed to forgive – and that love heals all people, places, and things if you believe it will.
Whether you’ve suffered abuse, are trying to help someone who has, or are battling a serious disease or illness, you’ll be inspired by My Amazing Transformation of Love, Courage, and Wisdom.
