Jacques Gauvin

Biography

I took a road less traveled and learned to trust in God.

I did not get a university degree but I did get a university education. Through the years I’ve taken courses at University of New Brunswick in Fredericton, Dalhousie University in Halifax where I gave three five minute lectures, Algonquin College in Ottawa, Mohawk College, CDI College and McMaster University all in Hamilton. The most significant course I took though was a Bible Correspondence Course through Ambassador College based in Pasadena California. Ambassador College, now defunct, was associated with the Worldwide Church of God which is now toting a totally different religion than when I was affiliated with them. I do not recommend it now.

I spent a few summers in army camps during my high school years. Sold bread in the States one summer. Worked for the City of Bathurst surveying for three summers during my university years. Worked one summer surveying for New Brunswick Electric Power Commission in Dalhousie. Worked for a Land surveyor in Fredericton for a few months. Worked for a Land Surveyor in New Liskeard Ontario briefly. Worked drafting for a Land Surveyor in Calgary for five years. Worked as an Instrument Man and Party Chief for a Land Surveyor in Hamilton for over eleven years. Have done computer drafting and calculating for another Ontario Land Surveyor in Hamilton since 1999.

I’ve traveled across the country from P.E.I to British Columbia. I have visited England, France, Germany, Greece, Turkey and Israel. I have also taken numerous trips to the U.S.A. notably to Ohio, New York, Kentucky, Indiana, South Carolina, Florida and California. In France I visited the port of La Rochelle where my original Canadian ancestor sailed from to come to Canada back near 1665. I also visited Croix Chapeau where he had lived. In Greece I went to the Acropolis, in Athens, where Paul, Christ’s disciple, was questioned by the Athenians concerning his knowledge. I also walked from the Acropolis to Socrates birthplace, I don’t recommend this to anyone. In Turkey I visited several of the places mentioned in the book of Revelation. I also saw where Philip was buried and where Mary the mother of Jesus lived, or so local tradition has it. In Israel, my most memorable and significant trip, I saw much of the country from the Mediterranean to the Golan Heights to the Dead Sea. I visited Armageddon, Nazareth, Galilee, Jerusalem, Masada and many other places. It gave me a new perspective and insight into Biblical places and events.

Although I have had most of my education in engineering and spent most of my working life in surveying, my goals and interests lie predominantly in religion and my relationship with my Creator. I have read and studied the Bible and related material substantially since 1978. I was baptized in 1985. My primary visible work is my website. It can be found by searching for Jacques Gauvin in Google on the internet or at www.jacquesgauvin.com.

Not too bad for a schizophrenic I’d say. Thanks for your interest and may your life be prosperous. Hope to see you in God’s Kingdom!

Smashwords Interview

How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords was a real game changer for me. Before discovering Smashwords I thought that publishing would remain out of reach financially and I had all but buried the idea. When Smashwords offered me free publishing I immediately checked them out and pleasingly saw that the process was straight forward so I quickly got to work, assembling my computer files and producing a published book in short order. I found the whole process very satisfying as the guideline was easy to follow and thorough and progress and service were fast. Smashwords is a real good fit for me.
What do your fans mean to you?
Unfortunately so far, it seems that I have very few fans if any. I have received a few encouraging compliments from a few personal friends but otherwise there has been very little response to my books. My aim in publishing my works is to spread and share the information that I have discovered and the perspective that I have on personal experiences with as many people as possible. I want to share the knowledge of the offer that God is giving us of eternal life with Him and His Son Jesus in the Kingdom of God and the freedom that is found through the Bible and the only acceptable way of life that is disclosed there. I do it my way and try not to sound like a broken record and I try to do it with love and respect for every one of my readers with hopes of giving them hope and by encouraging them to commit to God as I have or at least as I try.
