Introduction When a lawyer asked Jesus which is the great commandment in the Law, Jesus quoted Deut. 6:5, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind ...and the second [greatest] is like it; You shall love your neighbor as yourself." (Matt. 22:36-39) Since the moment I became a Christ-follower, God gave me an insatiable desire to study God’s Word. It is my heartbeat and passion to study His Word and share those biblical truths with practical real-world application. One of my favorite verses over the years has been Jeremiah 20:9, "If I say, 'I will not mention him, or speak any more in his name,' there is in my heart as it were a burning fire shut up in my bones, and I am weary with holding it in, and I cannot."
Interests Family time, creating videos (few and far between these days since I lost my Mac), games, music, and doing home improvement projects...really. You can check out a couple of my video creations at www.youtube.com/truthfarmer.
Favorite Movies Harvey, Rear Window, Vertigo (notice a theme?), any Clint Eastwood western (with The Outlaw Josie Wales being my favorite), Star Wars, Bourne Identity, Session 9, Avatar, Equilibrium, Happy Gilmore, Groundhog Day, Oh Brother Where Art Thou and the list goes on.
Favorite Music Music has been very influential in my life. Most often I listen to Contemporary Christian Music but I have an eclectic taste. I also love Trip-hop, (Massive Attack, UNKLE, DJ Shadow, Zero 7, Enigma), Radiohead, Justin Nozuka, Kurt Elling, Casting Crowns, Hillsong, Jeff Buckley, Seal, Nick Drake, Santana, Hendrix, Etta James, Lori Chase, Captain Geech and the Shrimp Shack Shooters.
Favorite Books The Bible, Tozer's The Knowledge of the Holy and the Pursuit of God, The Call by Os Guinness, Prayer: The Great Adventure by David Jeremiah, How Long O Lord by Carson, Genesis Unbound by John Sailhamer, Finding the Will of God by Waltke, Suffering and Sovereignty by Piper, The Mystery of God's Will by Swindoll, The Cost of Discipleship by Bonhoeffer, Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis, Autobiography of George Mueller.

What comes to mind when you think about God? The answer to that question is the most important thing about you!
