A Brief History
As a minister of pastoral care, I have had the immense privilege of counseling hundreds of families when their loved ones were near death. I also became aware of the depths of grief that families experience, and their questions about life after death. My study and experience with impending death led to a fascinating review of Scripture on that topic and the writing of The Coming Glory: Hope Now for
Life After Death.
I met Janiece at an Inter Varsity conference in Urbanna Illinois. Although
Janiece grew up in one farmhouse, my sisters and I lived in a number of
places because of my father's service in the Navy. In spite of our different
backgrounds, Janiece and I soon discovered we were soul mates. We
married after Janiece's graduation from Hope College in Holland Michigan.
My life-long passion to make a positive difference in peoples' lives began
with some serious study. My major in college, Psychology, helped me
understand individual behavior more fully. I mastered in American Culture to study how our environment shapes personal thought. My study in Theology enabled me to understand better a person’s relationship to God. I earned a doctorate in effective communication at the University of Michigan to determine how we can
better relate to one another.
Janiece and I care about you. We would love to hear from you (firstname.lastname@example.org) and keep you informed of the latest updates on our newest book, The Coming Glory: Hope Now for Life After Death.
