Author Mark C. Overton is a retired Chief Master Sergeant from the U.S. Air Force who developed a love for writing after transitioning. He first wrote the "Career Progression Guide for Airmen" series.
Through his faith, Mark turned to the Christian Living genre, penning "Chapter and Verse: Daily Devotions for Your Work Week" and co-authoring "Lord Teach Me How to Pray". His experience leading laymen ministries – usher, television, media, information technology and a men’s group – as well as founding and ministering the Good News Book Series website has helped him to build and spread his faith.
Mark practices his faith by attending the First Assembly of God in North Little Rock, Arkansas. He is also a Champion of Hope, partnering with Joel Osteen Ministries.
His latest book, "I Like to Start with Something Funny," is a collection of short, witty Joel Osteen jokes that bring joy and encourage laughter.
This book is a 31-day roadmap of God’s conditional promises structured around three guideposts: the promise’s meaning, an engaging story of fulfillment, and fruitful application. The stories are inspiring. But more than the information, motivation and practical guidance, what stands out is the appeal and journey to trust in and live out God’s promises.
“I Like to Start with Something Funny” is a compilation of many of Joel Osteen’s witty remarks and “laugh-out-loud” funny jokes that put his captive audiences at ease and inspire them to be engaged and uplifted. One touch of humor at a time, Osteen’s words of wisdom speak to the individual while also reaching out and providing comfort to the masses.
