There is not much personal information on this website about me because it's not about me, it's about Jesus and who He is.
Even with the mistakes and failures along the way I have been a Christian most of my life, attended some Christian Bible schools and studies; the proud father of three daughters, six grandchildren, and (at last count) seven great-grandchildren.
There have been some fascinating personal times with the Lord, plus jobs, and hobbies that include the Lord that I may write about in the future.
In my early twenties, I seriously wanted to witness for Christ and did, but there seemed to be something missing. Years later I realize God wanted my messages to be in writing, and I love to write.
However, it was and is not easy. In building this website, the Lord has drawn me farther out of an overly-coveted "comfort zone" than I would have thought possible.
But the "Trusting in Jesus" website has helped me reach more people than I would at one time have ever thought possible with a message of hope and a solid foundation for Christian living and eternal life through the Good News of Jesus.
I have always wanted my Christian writings to be in line with God's Word. So when I first began writing, I asked, "Lord, how should I write about miracles and things I have never seen or personally witnessed? And difficult Scriptures, such as Mark 11:23?
With a distinct response, the Holy Spirit, answered, "There will be times you will need to teach things in My Word that are perhaps beyond your understanding, but if you will write only what My Word says you will always be correct! And do not repeat or write an opinion that cannot be verified by My Word."
That was many years ago, and perhaps the best guidance ever, and I have never forgotten. And now, after witnessing many miracles and answers to prayer, I can confidently say, "What god is great like our God?" (Psa 77:13)).
Most days I am at my computer working on the website or writing. And when I can spare time I ride my old bicycle along the trails of the foothills of the "Great Smoky Mountains".
You can reach me from any form on any page of this website. I love to hear from you and will try to answer.
