Are you looking for Christ-centered devotionals, encouraging your faith and walk with Jesus?
As a writer, I love to take a Bible verse and dive into its truth and application, especially how it relates to and testifies of Jesus. The Bible is the grand testimony of the person and work of Jesus Christ. He said: "You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me" (John 5:39).
The goal in all my devotional writing is to explore His beauty, excellence, and glory, for the Christian life is about growing in "the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2 Peter 3:18).
I was born and raised in the Netherlands. My Dutch name, Jan, is the equivalent to John and is pronounced "yawn." When I was 19, I entered the U.S. and volunteered at Times Square Church for one year, working on the Raven Truck and at The Upper Room, reaching out to the homeless.
When I returned home, I started my external undergraduate degree program with Global University (at that time known as ICI University), while working at the Salvation Army at a homeless shelter in Rotterdam.
In 2001, I had the opportunity to pursue my graduate degree program on a work scholarship in Florida. I taught various Biblical and theological subjects at the seminary for six years.
I got married to Rachel in 2007 and we have two children. We reside in the Daytona Beach area and attend Christ Community Church.
