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?

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; deceived into thinking I was saved when I was living an unredeemed lifestyle; 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 and holy by having a superficial faith. I was a hypocrite who was under the righteous wrath of the Almighty Creator, until I was 19 years old...

Who I am now: In Christ, dead to the Law and sin, but alive to God through Him; 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).
