Life Is Just a Journey: My Journey through Life
by William Kenneth Meadors
Everyone has a story, and Dr. William Kenneth Meadors shares his story by describing his journey through life, which has included both triumphs as well as tragedies. He and his wife Nancy have spent the entire 57 years of their marriage in ministry, including pastoring, counseling, and teaching.
Dr. Meadors takes the reader on his journey from his childhood days in Northeast Arkansas that proceeded to his teenage years in Southeast Missouri, and then finishing high school and college in Memphis, Tennessee. Although he and Nancy had met as teenagers in Southeast Missouri, it was later when they were reunited in Memphis, where they married and began their life together. This life would take them back to Southeast Missouri, where Dr. Meadors began his journey as a pastor while teaching high school mathematics. For the next 50 years or so, his journey continues taking him and his family to full-time pastorates in Texas as well as Georgia.
Dr. Meadors has faced personal tragedy in his journey of life that started with the death of his father, mother, sister, and niece in a fiery crash in 1979 in Missouri. Through various experiences of meeting life’s demands, including having to deal with addiction problems with two of his sons, the journey continued. His oldest son Ken, as a 15-year old, had survived the accident that took the four members of his family. Ken would battle drug and alcohol addictions for most of his life and is now in a discipleship program that is leading him to fulfilling his purpose in this life. Ken’s story is told in the book he has written, Decisions of Change: the Choice Is Yours, which is available through Amazon.com.
Five years ago, Nancy and Dr. Meadors, received a telephone call that marked the greatest impact on their lives up until that time. They were told the shocking new that their middle son, Brandon, had been killed in a head-on collision. Brandon had lost the love of his life, wife Hope, in a similar automobile accident eleven years earlier. Further tragedy occurred in 2015, when the Meadorses received the news that their youngest son, Lyle, had been found hanged in the Georgia State Prison after only two months imprisonment. This happened, even though Dr. Meadors and his daughter had made numerous appeals for Lyle to get the medical help he needed. These appeals were of no avail. Lyle had lived a tormented life of mental and emotional issues that led to a serious addiction to drugs and alcohol and ended in a tragic death.
Through all of the triumphs and tragedies of their lives, Dr. Meadors and Nancy have continued to trust the God, whom they had committed themselves while just children. Dr. Meadors has stated that there are times when you don’t understand the circumstances around you, and you don’t seem to have faith, you have to just trust God.
The story of Dr. Meadors’ journey through life chronicles their triumphs as well as tragedies. This story gives real-life situations of which others can identify. There are events that are both informative and amusing, as well as inspiring.
