Tell us a little about yourself. I live in Rockland County, New York, with my wife of twenty years, our teenage daughter and our cat. I recently retired from the local phone company after almost twenty-five years. I've been Born Again for over thirty years.
What was your motivation behind this project? I felt there are too many Christians who are easily offended. I felt the Lord leading me to write this book to show His children that while the world is politically correct, we in the Body of Christ are to be spiritually correct. To show the Body through the Scriptures the tools He has given us to resist getting offended.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope people will gain revelation that we in the Body of Christ don't have to act like the world. We don't have to get offended at every little (or even big) thing because, among other reasons, the Greater One dwells within us, IF of course you've accepted Jesus as your Saviour.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I've grown closer to the Lord by virtue of the fact that I've had to spend more time in the Word. One of my favorite experiences (which happened more than once) were the times during my morning devotional prayer, God would lead me to my computer to what I thought would be to add just a sentence to the book. Many times it would end up a few paragraphs and once, almost an entire chapter.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I would have to say my influences would be my Pastors Greg Carr and Ed Pfundstein, Kenneth Copeland, Creflo Dollar, Joel Osteen, Jentzen Franklin and Joyce Meyer to name a few.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Even if you don't buy my book, don't let the devil get you offended. Meditate on Psalms 119:165, especially in this election year (2016). Don't get offended at the politicians, pray for them. And don't let the media tell you who to vote for, ask the Holy Spirit.
