Jesus On My Shoulder

I had great enthusiasm for my brother, Dennis Sands, in writing his book, "Jesus on My Shoulder". What a great accomplishment, hard work and dedication that went in to writing and publishing this book.

Each story kept my interest and it seemed like I was wondering what to do as well. I could not put the book down until it was finished, as one story seemed as exciting as the next.

Thank You for allowing me to review this book. When you see someone who risk his life every day please say "thank you for your service.

Jesus on My Shoulder

This book is full of mind-blowing stories. While dealing with stressful situations, Sgt Sands found a peaceful way to handle each of these situations. His stories are inspiring and an example of "good" law enforcement officers.

Could Not Put it Down!

As soon as I picked this up - I could not put it down. I immediately read through the whole book and loved reading all the exciting, nerve-racking, and sad stories through the eyes of a police officer. Sgt. Sands showed the readers that he was truly never alone and his career/life could’ve been completely different without Jesus on [His] Shoulder. This is a great read for anyone wanting to learn more about law enforcement, courage, bravery, Jesus in every day life, family and community. Highly recommended!
