"Life is not easy. If you have any doubt, read Just Breathe, the narrative of Keith Repult's life. It is a story of one man's struggle to overcome physical abuse, abandonment, homelessness, sexual promiscuity, loneliness, deceit, manipulation, regret, addiction, and the loss of hope. As you read his story you will marvel that he lived through it all. And at times you may wonder why he bothered to keep going. At points in the story, you may concluded that his was an irredeemable, unsalvageable life. But in God's eyes there is no such thing as a life that is irredeemable or unsalvageable..." -George Barna, New York Times Best-Selling Author.

This is for the people who are drowning in the pain of addiction and for all of us to know that no one is too far away from experiencing the grace of God.

You can be free and create a new way of life to change your life and legacy.

It’s a unique story that hasn’t been told. There have been some, though not many, books written and stories told about women leaving the porn industry and the pain it has caused. Not many men (if any) have been telling this story. The porn industry gave Keith everything he thought he wanted, but his choice to walk away from it is powerful and unique.

Just Breathe uses letters from the acronym BREATHE to take people on a journey from addiction to freedom.

  • "If you feel like you've somehow outrun God's grace, think again. Keith's story and journey to freedom is proof that God will go to any lengths to save anybody....including you."

  • "My wife and I decided to get scuba certified for our twenty-fifth wedding anniversary. It was just one of those bucket list things we'd always wanted to do—to renew our vows on the bottom of the ocean. We did this using only sign language, of course. Picture thumbs up for "better" and thumbs down for "worse", and youll get the idea. Looking back, I cant tell you why we chose to do this. Most of the scuba certification is about learning how to be safe in case something goes wrong. The actual art of scuba is not difficult to learn. Mostly you need to learn to breath with a mask on. I have to admit, it's a pretty strange feeling at first, but the most common mistake people make is that they, well, freak out. First-timers suddenly realize they are actually under water, and their natural tendency is to start breathing too fast. In golf, the number one rule is to keep your head down. In baseball, it's to keep your eye on the ball. In scuba diving, it's just breathe. Keith's book brings that scuba diving lesson to dry land. His story seems like something a screenwriter wouldn't even try to write. It's one chapter after another of a life's downward spiral. Keith is fortunate to still be with us after his battle with the addiction monsters. But somehow through it all, he was able to keep breathing. I know Keith. He's a walking miracle in many ways, but the first rule of scuba will always ring true for him: just breathe. My hope is that you will see parts of yourself in Keith's story and realize that none of us live too far away from the grace of God. I hope you will see addiction for the monster that it is and seek some help before it is too late for you. So read on. Keep your mask on. Don't freak out. Just breathe. And discover the hope you need."

  • "Sometimes 'amazing grace' seems like just a phrase, or only the title of an old hymn. And then you read the story of a life likes Keith, and it becomes clear once again that this grace is a power stronger than death and the hope of the world. Read about it — and come home."
    John Ortberg
    Senior Pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church

Keith's story continues to be a vivid reminder to me that Jesus doesn't just make us better, He makes us new!"

Jen Oakes, has been writing since her mom gave her a pen and a journal when she was a little girl and made her sit in her room for an hour of “quiet time” every day. And now that she’s a mom, she realizes that her mom was a genius—not just for the whole “send your kid to their room for a quiet time” thing, but also because it developed in Jen a deep love for writing. She considers it one of the greatest privileges of her life to be a part of watching and telling stories of individuals who have been redeemed by the grace of God. Jen is passionate about coffee, listening to vinyl records, open windows, reading, writing, hiking, being outside, and peo- ple. She currently serves on staff at Mission Church in Ventura, California and is happily married to her favorite person, T. D. Oakes. Together they have two incredible kids.
