In 1983 Jack Hartman, a businessman close to bankruptcy and a nervous breakdown, wrote Trust God for Your Finances. The first 25,000 copies printed immediately sold out. Jack and Judy’s flagship book now has over 180,000 copies in print, has been translated into nine languages, and now has an accompanying free, perspective-changing curriculum (see www.lamplight.net). Jack founded the still thriving and industry leader, Northeast Planning Associates, at age 28 and continued mentoring financial advisors until 2013 (see www.northeastplanning.com).
In 1991 Jack and Judy established Lamplight Ministries, Inc., (debt free since its inception) so that anyone whose life has been transformed by the Word of God in their books can invest in sending Lamplight books to the nations as well as to prisons and jails.
Jack and Judy have written 33 Bible-based, Christ-centered topical books. Although both are college graduates and Judy has a Master’s Degree in Secondary Reading, their writing makes the Bible simple and easy to understand. At ages 85 and 77 Jack (born in Vermont) and Judy (born in California) continue to write two books each year from their home in Florida. Their mission is to introduce people to Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Savior of the world, and to teach them how to live in the love of God in Christ Jesus.
