About

faceMy name is Timothy. I became a Christian when I was seventeen years old. A few weeks later I surrendered to a call of God on my life, though I did not really know what that was going to be. I started preaching at that time and have continued to do so through the years. Like most, I have had my ups and downs in my Christian walk. In college I received a BA degree with a double major in History and Religion. I then attained an MDiv degree. After receiving my graduate degree, I continued my studies and received a ThM in Biblical Studies focusing in Old Testament and Hebrew.

I have been married for over ten years. I have a teen-aged step-daughter and two younger daughters, one is six and the other is four years old.

I began this blog because it is something I had long wanted to do. I have always loved writing and composing thoughts on page. I have written all sorts of things: sermon manuscripts, poems, short stories, research papers, among others. I have always considered myself a writer, as well as being an avid reader, but until now have not found the time (or had the discipline perhaps) to put it all together.

I also enjoy gardening, which I have been doing for the past six years. I mainly plant vegetables, along with some fruits. I enjoy reading, research, travel, and a good comfy leather chair. I am an avid Bob Dylan and Bob Seger fan.

Some of my favorite authors include: C.S. Lewis, Francis Shaeffer, Wesley, Calvin, Augustine, Luther, Edwards, Arminius, Chesterton, and Tolkien to name a few. Favorite poets include: Shelley, Poe, Tennyson, Whitman, Shakespeare, Byron, Donne, Pope, Frost, Dickinson, and T.S. Eliot. Musically, I am more inclined to folk music and classical (Tchaikovsky is my favorite, followed by Mozart).

Aside from Hebrew and OT studies, I enjoy historical theology and theology proper; especially Trinitarian theology.

    I’m glad I found your blog. I like quite a few of your favorite authors. I’m not sure if he is considered an author, but I would add Spurgeon to the list.

      Yes, Spurgeon is well worth mentioning. I have used his Morning and Evening as a devotional many times.

    Good to meet you, Tim! You’re an excellent writer. I finally found out what Lent means. I always thought it had something to do with lentil soup 😉 Just kidding…

      Thank you for stopping by and the kind comment! As for Lent, with small children, I was almost certain it had something to do with a dryer! Feel free to interact as you wish.

    Pleased to meet you Timothy my elder brother in Christ. And just like everybody else i would take some precious time of my life to type a few words on your beautiful “Choco” theme.

    “There are patterns which emerge in one’s life, circling and returning anew, an endless variation of a theme”

    GOD bless you.
