Jim Rayburn Jr., my father, was the founder and leader of a worldwide work known as Young Life. From 1981 to 1983 I wrote his and my mother's biography. In 1984 Tynale House published this biography, Dance, Children, Dance,and in 2000 Morningstar Press published the second edition, "From Bondage To Liberty, Dance, Children, Dance."

As this book is out of print it is no longer found in book-stores. Copies are still available on this site. Orders coming through this website will receive a discounted price of $16.95 plus shipping (usually $4.95).
