New Release Hooks Readers with Stories from the Past
One man's detailed account from the King of Rock, to rock bottom, to living for the Almighty King
MAITLAND, FL— Not many can say they were part of Elvis Presley’s inner circle, and there is only one who can say he stole a girl named Elisabeth from the King of Rock, but that’s exactly what Rex Mansfield did. Take a trip back in time with Mansfield’s new book, Living the Moments: My Journey with Elvis, Elisabeth and Jesus, ($27.99, paperback, 9781545612453; $9.99, e-book, 9781545612583), and walk alongside the author as he discovers the world around him, finds the love of his life, and falls prey to the ultimate price of a life built on a shaky foundation instead one built on God.
“God had a plan for me back as early as my formative years on a farm in Tennessee. I just didn’t recognize it until it was almost too late,“ the author states. ”I climbed the corporate ladder to a six-figure salary that bought nice cars and a beautiful home, but I built that life on materialism, not God. My world crumbled until I became born again. Since devoting my life to God, I have been able to once again climb the ladder of success as a Christian, with the aim to show Him in all things.”
Rex Mansfield served in the U.S Army, and upon returning to the States, turned down a job as Elvis Presley’s Foreman to marry the woman of his dreams.The author, a successful business man, knows what it means to come face-to-face with his sinful life and begin anew as a child of God. Mansfield, now a leader in international sales and marketing, seeks to share his journey from the days in Elvis Presley’s inner circle to his current life within God’s inner circle.
