Paper Tears

An autobiography of Fire Chief Jerry Austin

For out of much affliction and anguish of heart I wrote this book to you, with many tears, not that you should be grieved, but that you may know the love that I have so abundantly from Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 2:4 Paraphrased



The author, Jerry Dewayne Austin, Sr., shared "his story," which is a remarkable journey that is still being traveled. It is evident that God had plans for his life, and showed His grace and mercy at every turn to give the author the privilege of experiencing and growing through his accomplishments. Mr. Austin's story, an engaging one, demonstrates the love, grace, and mercy of the "God of Creation" he serves.
