I am a retired CRC pastor who was an English teacher with an English Master's and a sales manager, while running away from God's call ot be a pastor. During my last year of teaching, our son Keith died from leukemia, a very traumatic event that God used to re-direct our lives toward seminary and 27 years in the ministry in seven CRC churches. In 2008 God guided us into retirement and gave a fourth career writing Christian books, thus combining all of my previous careers into one. My first published book is Doubtbusters! God Is My Shrink!
