About the Author

Why I am posting this profile when I already have a profile: I like to know a little about the people I meet. I think you are probably like me in some ways, maybe not in others. So here it is, info about myself to help my readers know who they are talking to. Maybe, even some "people from my past" will find me here?

Penn Tomassetti
Location: Gap, Pennsyvania
Occupation: Graphic Designer (Photo manipulation spcialist)
Schools: Home Schooled; Lancaster Mennonite High School 1998-2002; Art Institute of Pittsburgh 2002-2006.

Bible verses that have changed me: Romans 2:1-2,3,4,5; John 6:37; John 8:31-32,34-36

Interests: Reading and understanding the holy Scriptures; helping others understand them; witnessing in cities; doing whatever I can to spread the fragrance of the knowledge of God in Christ Jesus my Lord; photography; design; spending time talking with people; meeting people with foreign accents and languages; learning new languages; blogging; learning how to do things; reading Bible-based, Christ-centered books; learning about Creation; creative artistry, writing and music.

Who I used to be: Totally selfish; self deceived into thinking I was saved when I was abiding in death; shy, lonely and sad; wanted to set myself up as better than others so that I could have a reason to get praise for myself. Excused my evil desires, disobedience to Christ, and hatred for what is righteous by claiming to have faith, when I had none. I was a hypocrite who was under the righteous wrath of Almighty God, my Creator. Until I was 19 years old...

Who I am now: dead to the Law and sin, but alive to God in Christ; free from the guilt and condemnation that my evil heart deserves; justified forever through faith in Christ Jesus who died for me and rose again; desire to serve my family for the sake of His name; love talking to people about God's Word; I have met hundreds of individuals from every class and lifestyle and culture, and I have tried to point them to my Savior; I love sincerely and dearly my fellow laborers and all who call on the Lord from a pure heart; I also love doing good to all men, but especially to the household of God (pray I will be more diligent in this).

Family: I come from a family originally of six.

Thanks for sharing. It is nice to know more about others. You were honest about who you were and who you are now, which is a testimony to God's power to free a person from shame, and I think that's cool.

In Christ
