Storm Warnings

Fascinated with the meteorological predictions of the coming hurricane season, Jim senses that more personal, devastating storms are on the horizon. Could his family withstand the winds that were about to blow their way?

Events as devastating as a hurricane have hit Jim Carpenter. The dissolution of his seemingly perfect marriage and the tragic loss of his son are threatening to overwhelm him. It looks as if there is no way out. This work of fiction is the story Storm Warnings, it also mirrors the real life of author Gary Morris.

Fascinated by weather forecasting and a devotee of The Weather Channel, thirty-something Jim Carpenter senses a personal storm developing in the distance. He notices that the cracks in the foundation of his marriage have widened with neglect, and the death of his son only hastens its collapse. Divorced and alone, Jim discovers a force greater than a hurricane that gives him renewed hope.

With over twenty years in ministry and a successful career in the finance, insurance, and medical industries, author Gary Morris has also lived out a hurricane in his personal life. During the rebuilding of Mississippi immediately after Hurricane Katrina, Gary began to write about his life through the fictional character of Jim Carpenter, and Storm Warnings is the result. After the Storm, a continuation of this fictional recreation of non-fiction events, is in the works.

Born out of a time of great personal pain, Storm Warings is Gary Morris's warning to those who think this could never happen to them and an encouragement for those who are experiencing storms themselves.

Excerpt
Jim heard very little after the heart-wrenching words, “I’m sorry.” He knew in his heart that Jon was gone, but somehow in his mind he thought he could dispute reality.


“No,” he cried. “There’s no way! He was too full of life! He had just recently told me his plans for the future! We just talked to him on the phone. Are you sure you have the right
person?” [Chapter Six]

Not wanting to spend the night in jail and face murder charges, Jim walked to Steven’s pickup. He started the engine, put it in drive, and drove off, leaving them sitting there. He’d held up quite well, until now. [Chapter 14]

As though God had been waiting so long for this moment, Jim felt the love of God fill the room. He began to weep as a voice spoke gently to his heart, “Be still and know that I am God.” Jim
knew at that moment that he was going to make it through this storm. [Chapter 15]
