I’ve always enjoyed writing–at least since my dusty school days when Mr. Beiler knelt beside my desk and patiently helped make sense of my knotty English composition assignment.  I have written in notebooks and scribbled on assorted scraps of paper ever since.  Some tell me it’s time to put my writings on a blog.

Jesus follower.  Living out my faith in the manner understood by the conservative Anabaptist community.  Blessed husband, and father of nine.  Pastor.  Naturalist.  Worshiper of a Mighty Creator.  Drawn to beauty in nature. Learning to walk closer to my Savior. Desiring to build the local church.  Wanting God to break my heart for those still sitting in darkness.  Abundantly blessed, and wanting to bless abundantly.
