Path To Truth: The Ray Stanton Story by Pastor Ray Stanton
Path to Truth is one of the most honest, funny and heartwarming stories of one man’s journey toward a relationship with God.
Ray Stanton was raised in a poor farming family in Indiana. He always felt the presence of God in his life, though he never really had a relationship with him. His family never really went to church and he, being the oldest of seven kids had to work on the farm from an early age.
When he was eight-years-old, Ray had his first encounter with God in a snowy hay-field. There were many other times when God protected Ray, but it wasn’t until he was twenty-seven years old and thought he couldn’t go on. He was about to pull the trigger when God spoke to him.
This book isn’t a preachy book, it isn’t a “what you should do” book, it is one man’s story. Pastor Stanton has traveled all over the world spreading the gospel and sharing his story with others. It is his wish that this book be an inspiration to you in your walk with God.
Brian Dawson – Mr. Editor says “I feel this book has huge potential! It was funny, sweet, moving and inspirational! I couldn’t stop laughing about the hotel room scene. I love the flow of the book and how he puts details in, but not so much that he loses the reader in those details.”
5 Stars: I love reading memoirs and enjoyed reading Path To Truth: The Ray Stanton Story. Some of his experiences brought a smile to my face, as I too grew up in rural, small-town America where children have the freedom to roam. I would be willing to bet that one or more of his short life experiences will draw you back into your own memories of childhood, teen years and young adulthood.
The author begins with his first childhood memory, living in a small camper, trailer on the edge of a field. From there he takes us on a journey to The Opal Parker Place, The Miscarriage, The Tractor, The Kehrt Farm, The Move, The New Shoes, New Farm / New School, A Little Down Time on the Farm, The Measles / Chicken Pox / Mumps, The Skunk, The Lost Horse, Another Sibling, Milk Cows, Falling off the Tractor: My First Encounter with God, The Meeting in the Hay Field, Things Start to Change, A New Brother, The Ice Trip Down River, The Stanton’s Get Guns, Putting Hay in the Barn, Hunting to Survive, Hauling Corn, A Horse of Our Own Acting like Men, The Farm Sells, The New School, The Cows, We’re In the Money, The Creek and Learning to Swim, The Old German Lady, The Bull, Football Practice, Summer Break is Too Short, Dave’s Family Moves, Dad Has a Heart Attack, The New Place in Town, The New School in Town, A Business Enterprise, The Fish Fry, Granddad Intervenes, The Harley, Summers Spent Talking to God, My First Car, DeMolay, Dad Gets a Motor, I Will Graduate, Married Life, Selling Insurance, Pickled Eggs, Burgers and Beer, The Blizzard of ’77, and Studying the Rich Folk.
I share the author’s story headings inside this memoir, because I believe after reading the titles, you will find something of interest that you would like to read. I have a couple of favorites. Growing up where I could roam freely on foot and travel great distances on my bike, I remember exploring everything in hopes of finding hidden treasures. The author’s story ‘Were In The Money’ was extremely interesting.
I enjoyed getting to know this author and I enjoyed some of the photos that he shared in this book. I found his ‘Studying the Rich Folk’ enlightening. His title ‘Path To Truth’ is a good fit, because he searched for and found truth. God spoke to Ray at age 27, when he was holding a gun to his throat. This book is a testimony to God’s goodness and saving grace.

The way to revive and refresh the church, is through Adoration Prayer.
Now is the time; today is that day. As I begin this book, I can feel the anointing flowing through me. 2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven; and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”

Adoration Prayer Devotional / Journal by Pastor Ray Stanton
I have written this Devotional/Journal to help you begin your journey into Adoration Prayer.
I hope that the scriptures and references in this book encourage you to start your prayer time reflecting on who God is, first.
We need to know that He is more than we can ever possibly comprehend. What is God?
He is All in All. He is all things to all men and more. As you reflect on these pages and begin to journal what God gives you during your prayers, I believe adoring Him will come as naturally to you, as it does to me.
How great it is for us to have the opportunity to praise and worship our Creator. I have designed this book to journal your thoughts about what God speaks to your heart as you pray.
I find that He reveals things to me and I need to write them down, so I can look back on them later. They give me a renewed surge of spiritual energy.
I pray that you will be as Blessed, as I have been through your time of Prayer. Pastor Ray

Waynesville, Indiana: Mother’s Day, Murder
and Mayhem by Ray and Debi Stanton
Waynesville, Indiana, a small suburb of Columbus, Indiana, was the scene of four gruesome murders on May 11, 2013. The 911 call came in a little after 10:30 p.m. “There’s blood everywhere,” Daniel told the 911 operator. “I just walked in and there’s two, I have two bodies here, and I think they have both been shot. There’s blood everywhere.” Daniel gave the 911 operator his location. He explained to him, “There might be three, because I can’t find my mom either.” He told the operator that the house looked like it had been ransacked. “There was a fight here.” Daniel said. Katheryn Burton was shot and stabbed four times. Each of the other victims: Aaron Cross, Tommy Smith and Shawn Burton were shot at least twice. Samuel Sallee has been convicted and sentenced to 4 consecutive life sentences for the brutal murders that changed one young man’s life forever. The next day was Mother’s Day! “That guy killed my whole family,” said Daniel Burton, the son of Katheryn Burton. “I think I’ve earned a front-row seat to watch him die. I’d lump him together with Hitler, because I can’t think of anyone else who is that evil. “Daniel Burton: “The Trial was my family’s story. This is mine.”
