Recently, I noticed a few hits on this particular page, and realized, oops, I don’t have anything here to let people know who I am in the blogosphere (or in real-time, either). So, read on. (Be sure to click on the “Where Have We Been” link at the bottom of the page)
As of November
2009 2014),(2016) I am a God-fearing man of 42, 47, 49, a husband to the same wonderful woman (Sharon) for 20 25 27 years, a father to eight (!) children, and a signalman (a signal maintainer since 2012) for one of the nation’s class I railroads.
I was a pastor for seven years, and a paid IT guy (computer geek) for 12 years. I’ve also worked construction, and have been published as a writer. I’ve been involved as a trainer (other than for my own children) and an educator at various points along the way over about 15 years. I have been blogging, now, for ten years.
My family and I live on a 10-acre “hobby” farm in Southwestern Minnesota. We have egg-laying hens,
a few goats, some sheep of several varieties, a few cows, and a few dogs, including two Newfoundlands, a few pigs, and several cats.
Oh, and did I mention? We (!) home school. I say, we, but actually, Sharon obviously is the primary teacher.
There you have it, for now. It’s not exactly in a nutshell, but, it’s who I am. More than I had here yesterday.

Thanks for the comment, sir. As I recall, A.W. Tozer was a pastor in Toronto for some time. May the Lord bless your desire to draw near to Him and to His will for you. Your son looks to be a joyful child; surely children are an heritage from the Lord!
Great to read about your life! Encouraged that you’re seeking Him in everything, and that you delight in that. I would love to do what you do, and I can only say “one day…” and sigh. My small family (wife and one two-year-old) live in Toronto, with a population of almost 3 million. Not exactly space to spread your wings. But it’s a place to live, and we are blessed in so many ways. But one day….!
I just started micro-blogging on Twitter. My link for prayer requests (from me and others) is: http://twitter.com/prayer_requests
That’s a picture of my son, Jasper. God bless!
I just noticed that you linked to one of my blog post and after reading your bio I see that we have much in common. Lord Bless!
Thank you, and I appreciate the invitation.
