The author of “Not Without Purpose,” Phil Sims will be in the Lincoln Community Room at 6 p.m. Tuesday. In Sims’ first mystery novel, a young marine is challenged to believe, a teen's obedience to God is tested, and a small North Carolina mountain town is brought to its knees in prayer.
Sims, a Vietnam veteran, served in the United States Navy for seven years, five of them aboard the USS Midway VA41. He is a Boy Scout scoutmaster and a member of the Gideons International. Phil and his wife, Alma, reside in West Monroe. They have three grown children and six grandchildren.
