At present, I'm diligently collaborating with my publishing team to ascertain the precise release date, and I am eagerly counting down the moments until I can share this invaluable information with you.
This book is a departure from my earlier works; it's a profound metamorphosis—a meticulous fusion of two literary gems: "A Beautiful World: One Son's Escape from the Snares of Abuse and Devotion" and "God Must Be Sleeping" (January 1, 2011). It's not a mere revision; it's a profound rebirth—an ascension akin to a phoenix soaring from the ashes of the narrative.
The Genesis of This Revelation
The spark that ignited this transformative journey was born from an unwavering passion—to unearth the concealed emotions and the secret chambers of my life story, not just recount it, but to allow you, dear reader, to vividly experience it. As you turn the pages, you won't merely be a passive reader; you'll become a trusted companion, journeying alongside me through the intricate corridors of struggle and the ultimate liberation.

This is not just a narrative; it's a vibrant testament to the unconquerable human spirit, a heartfelt tribute to unwavering faith, and an eloquent chronicle of love's transformative power. Each word has been meticulously chosen, imbuing the work with purpose and transforming it beyond storytelling—into something akin to a spiritual revelation.
A Covenant of Shared Experiences
As you navigate the intricacies of my life's tapestry, I hope that you will find echoes of your journey. I invite you to tap into the infinite reservoir of resilience, faith, and love that guided me through life's darkest valleys and loftiest summits. My deepest aspiration is for this book to serve as a mirror—a mirror that encourages you to contemplate your moral compass, sparks introspection, and illuminates the timeless themes of resilience and hope that defines your very existence.
Embark, Experience, Evolve
The book release is coming soon in 2024.   Within its pages, you will unearth profound truths—a guiding light that will illuminate your innate capacity to conquer life's tempests and flourish in the face of adversity.
I extend my deepest gratitude to you for choosing to embark on this extraordinary odyssey—a journey brimming with revelations, self-discovery, and revitalizing truths. I eagerly await your unique insights as you delve into this soul-stirring narrative.  Stay tuned to for updates on the release date.
Warm regards, 
Dr. Gregg Tyler Milligan, In Resilience and Love. 



As I delve into the vivid tapestry of my own memories, there is one truth that resonates at the very heart of it all—a truth that I hold dear and wish to share with you, my dear readers. Jesus is responsible for all of this. In the forefront of this scene stands an ancient apple tree, its imposing stature a testament to the passage of time. Its gnarled branches stretch out like the arms of a guardian deity, offering a leafy canopy that once served as my shield against the emotional whirlwinds that frequented the halls of my childhood home. This tree, I believe, was placed here by divine providence, a gift from Jesus Himself, to provide solace and protection in the midst of life's storms. The rustling leaves, tenderly caressed by the whispering breeze, and the fractured sunlight that danced through the branches were a soothing balm to my soul. It was as if Jesus Himself orchestrated these natural elements to provide comfort and respite, drowning out the cacophony of heated words and tension that too often filled the air. Among the lush green leaves, sporadic hints of crimson symbolized not just resilience but the blood of Christ, a symbol of redemption and forgiveness. By my side stood Sambirdio, a silent but powerful presence. I firmly believe that Jesus had a hand in placing him there, for Sambirdio exuded a gentle strength that provided stability amidst the turbulent sea of my mother's emotions. He was more than a companion; he was a manifestation of Jesus's love, a rock on which I could lean when my world threatened to crumble. The ground beneath us, rich and fertile, absorbed not only our shared stories but also the weight of our fears and aspirations. It felt as though the very earth beneath us transformed, mirroring our emotional journey from chaos to peace whenever we sought refuge in this sacred alcove—a transformation I attribute to the divine grace of Jesus. In a corner of this tableau, the words "For Dad" and the etched year "2021" held a special resonance. They transformed into a heartfelt tribute, not just to a paternal figure, but to the enduring sanctuary that love and friendship could create, thanks to the teachings of Jesus. The apple tree and Sambirdio, in their harmonious unity, were more than just my sanctuary—they were tangible expressions of Jesus's love and care. They symbolized strength, love, and solace, reminding me that even in the midst of chaos, a sanctuary forged from the teachings of Jesus and the love of others awaited me. Now, as I share this tableau with you through words, I want you to feel the profound impact of Jesus's presence in my life—a presence that has guided me through the storms and illuminated my path with His grace. And as we delve deeper into the pages of this book, I invite you to explore the vivid imagery, narrative tension, and character arcs that have shaped my journey, all under the watchful eye of Jesus, who is responsible for all of this. --- This artwork, skillfully brought to life by the talented hands of Gregg Tyler II, to whom this book is dedicated, resonates with the vibrant hues of watercolors and colored pencils. It captures the essence of my boyhood memories in a way that words alone cannot express. I believe that Jesus guided Gregg's hands as he created this masterpiece, infusing it with His divine presence. In deep gratitude, I acknowledge my son, expressing, "Thank you, Son. You have always been 'Your Father's Artist' in so many ways, guided by the inspiration of Jesus. Forever, Dad."
