Introducing I Wish It Would Rain...

I Wish It Would Rain is the autobiographical story of Jimi's journey through the pain of drug addiction and depression. After traveling 200 days a year performing concerts and appearances, life took a different turn for 6 1/2 years. I Wish It Would Rain is that story. Jimi tells of his years growing up in a small NC town and later on the road as a touring musician. The often graphic chapters of being addicted to pain medication are harsh, sad, and at times unbelievable. However, the outcome could have been much worse. This book is actually a book of hope. It ends in redemption and hope. Jimi's wife also contributes a chapter about what addiction looks like from the eyes of the innocent. This book is also written for the purpose of helping others who struggle with these diseases to realize that there is a way out. Written from the perspective of Jimi's faith, it is powerful and a testimony that God never gives up on his children. Jimi is also currently out sharing this story along with music at various churches and organizations.ย
