About the Author:

I was born in a small Northeast Ohio. The area received more rain than Seattle a few years ago. My family moved from Worn Out to a more rural area seven miles away named Champion, Ohio when I was 2-years-old. The new homestead had neighbors nearby but was still considered the country. I’m 59-years-old, I’m currently diagnosed as bipolar and give all the credit to the Lord Jesus Christ. In no way am I comparing myself to the Apostle Peter, but he used profanity, was violent and erratic, and turned his back on the Lord. Yet Peter loved Christ with all his heart.
