Book Review: From Baptist Preacher to Mormon Teacher

From Baptist Preacher blog tourAbout the book:
Wain Myers thought he knew what he believed, but after a revelation from God, something had to change. This former Baptist preacher tells his fascinating story of following the Spirit’s voice and ultimately becoming a convert in the LDS church. This remarkable true story will inspire you to follow your own promptings and share truth wherever you find it.

About the authors:
Wain Myers is a native of Dayton, Ohio. He served in the United States Army in Bad Kissingen, Germany, where he received his call to the ministry. After his military career, he returned to the U.S. and began preaching at True Vine Missionary Baptist church, where he preached for over five years and was then introduced to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by his lovely wife Sebrina. He’s been an active member of the Church since 1995 and has served on his stake’s high council and as second counselor in the Genesis Group leadership.
Wain and Sebrina are the proud parents of seven amazing children; Le’Roy Jr., Isaiah (who recently returned from a full-time mission in the Louisiana Baton Rouge Mission), Bradford (and wife Paige), Quesley, Braxton, Spencer, and Ammon. Wain is a firm believer that no amount of success outside of the home can make up for failure inside the home. Check out his website at
Kelly L. Martinez has written about sports and entertainment for most of his professional career, though he has also dabbled in travel and tech articles. His writing has appeared in several national and regional publications, such as USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, Meridian Magazine, and the Deseret News. He comes from a long line of Mormon pioneers on his mother’s side and is of Hispanic, French, and Native American descent on his father’s. This is his first co-authorship and published book.

From Reidhead Randomness:
This inspiring, quick read will take you on the journey and trials of Brother Wain Myers as he moves from the Baptist Preacher life, to a brother in the Priesthood (in the LDS church).  It is so touching as he shares his experiences and testimony.  As the book goes back and forth between his Baptist life, and his LDS life, the story of each religion is shared with insightful perspective.  The wonderful, tender moments of life that Brother Myers shares is what makes this book so endearing.  In chapter 16, there is great advice to parents that have been through divorce, and how to handle 'exes.'   What a wonderful, though provoking, and inspiring book!
