Getting Up from Being Down

Contact: S. Todd Townsend, 360-226-3488


ENUMCLAW, Wash., Feb. 11, 2019 /Standard Newswire/ -- Ever been down in life? Really down? S. Todd Townsend knows down.


Raised in inner-city Philadelphia in a home with a loving mother and an abusive stepfather, S. Todd experienced the hard life, the cons, and the law of the streets as a law-breaking rabble rouser, a car thief, and a home robber--nothing more than a common thug. But when he heard the gospel, heard that Christ's death and resurrection was for him, he surrendered control of his life to God, who transformed him. Nothing has been the same since.


Now a pastor and educator, as well as a rap and hip-hop musician, S. Todd uses his life experiences to illustrate the necessity of getting back up and staying up, of holding on to the thread of hope even in the dark chapters of life. With dynamic personal stories, original raps, and questions for discussion and review, S. Todd brings hope, inspiration, and encouragement to get back up in life--no matter the circumstances.
