Erron Wright is familiar face for many - he owns Wright Quote Insurance and also Goo's Dojo Karate Studio, both in Neosho. He also has written some devotional columns in the past for several publications including the Neosho Daily News.

Now his first book is available on Amazon.com or directly from Wright. Like his earlier writing, it's a devotional book - and more.

Titled "God's Dojo: Survive The Battle" debuted in late February on Amazon.

Wright explained the title.

"Dojo - in Japanese is "the place of the way," he explained. "What it means is a place to train - commonly it's going to be karate that's trained and that's the reason for the name of my karate studio.

God's Dojo is a place to train up in the word of God and looking for the wills and ways of God."

Wright's desire to write dates back to his time at Missouri Southern State University and one of his instructors.

"I was inspired to write by my instructor at Missouri Southern and he told us not to let anyone else tell your story better than you can tell it yourself. He told us that - I don't know if that's his original phrase but it stuck with me through the years. I had the opportunity to write for a couple of papers including the Neosho Daily - I was blessed with that opportunity - to write with and for them," Wright said.

He also explained the title of this first edition and why it's "Survive The Storm."

"I - and other people - view our walk as a walk of warfare - the enemy as a lion is always lurking about trying to find who he can devour - so we look at it as a walk of warfare. In God's Dojo

you can get training out of this book and good words out of this book. The Bible is the best place to get the Word. Getting to church is a great place to get the Word - witnessing among friends

Iron sharpens iron as we talk and so the world is the training facility. It's also the place to use the training that you get so God's Dojo is just where you choose to train."

Within the book itself, Wright states there is a preface followed by miracles he's had opportunity to be part of, accounts of things he's done and experienced and Christian principles reinforced by his personal experiences.

Wright stated he's not a novel reader but more of a Reader's Digest type reader. So when he sat down to write, that's the style he chose.

"I thought it would be nice to pull my devotionals together and put them into a book like this so that's how I was led to put it together in a book form."

Also, a book is a tangible realization of his goals.

"I think we all want to have something in our hand that we can say we produced and that's a nice feeling and as God led me to write the book to compile all these devotionals together my goal

was to just hope that one person in the world was helped immensely by this book. That's my first, purest goal, my smallest quantity goal but my biggest quality goal I'm looking for out of this book.

I want to reach just one person who can be blessed immensely by it."

The current cover will soon change to the one in the accompanying photo.

Wright has already received a few reviews and plans to hold some book signings in the future. And, for those who enjoy this work, there will be another.

"There will be another one available around the first of the year. I have some more material, not enough to fill a book yet but I plan to write another," Wright said. "If they like this one, they can look forward to the next."

The book description on Amazon reads: "God's Dojo "Survive the Battle" is NOT a replacement for the greatest book ever written; The Bible. This little book gives the reader a word of encouragement and battle plans to survive the walk of life. The book is written from the view of a warrior, an athlete or someone seeking God's face. Use it to develop a greater love, knowledge and understanding of the great and sacred word of God."

"God's Dojo: Survive The Storm" can be found on Amazon or purchased directly from Wright.

The book was independently published and is 124 pages in length.
