James Finley lives in a cruel, poverty-stricken environment in the slums of New York City during the Great Depression. The family moves from tenement to tenement, struggling to pay the rent. After attending 17 schools in 11 years, James drops out of high school and joins the United States Navy at the age of 17.
But what unfolds next, can only be described as miraculous. In ways he could have never predicted, James’ life becomes radically changed. And through his example of unwavering faith, optimism, love and prayer, he and his wife, Gloria, start a business and raise four children who make a difference in the lives of tens of thousands of others.
