I am a middle-aged male who now lives in Jackson, Michigan. I spent nine months of my life serving in the United States Navy, two years as a volunteer for the government volunteer program called VISTA, and five years in college to earn a Bachelorís of Science in Business Administration. For three years, I was the coordinator for the Jackson Talent Exchange, a program geared toward building the Jackson community by encouraging people to utilize their talents to help another in need. Two years ago, I started my own Internet ministry known as In Pursuit of Freedom Ministries, which still remains. Today, in my spare time, I lead bible study.
My greatest desire is to save a life Ė just like how mine was saved by my former college instructor. Before I met Professor Duane Dobbert, my life was in ruins and seemingly had no chance for future success. I was controlled by an illness unknown to all. Being a psychology insructor, he saw my troubles and took an interest in me when most people seemed to do otherwise. Less than one year later, he sent me to the school counselor who referred me to a physiatrist for help. That doctor soon after discovered I had bipolar disorder. Three years later another physiatrist diagnosed me with an additional disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder. Today, after the right medications and much therapy, life is great. I owe my life to a teacher who believed my life was worth saving.
Both God and I believe your life is worth saving. Through my writings, I hope to sow Godís truth to this dying world and let God be the Savior that we all desperately need Him to be. I want people to be free from their chains. Christ can make that happen. I am just His messenger.
