“The book, “It’s Okay, You're with My Father" (A Child Abuse Investigator’s Call to the Church), by Chris Shelton, is the inside story of one who has been there, one who has worked with victims, but one who still had the love of Christ in him when dealing with perpetrators. There was never a task too small or too large for Chris to tackle if it helped to find justice for victims or their families. Chris stood for the children, and often the terms of justice were creative, sometime amazing, but always filled with his prayers. While reading the book, I could visualize the characters and could see Chris giving support, but never losing sight of the importance of his belief that we are all children of God. I always felt during an investigation that Chris Shelton “had my back”. He took small pieces of evidence and worked with each piece until the justice system had the whole. I am honored to recommend this book; it is written by a man who has been in the trenches, but did not forget what was important.”
