About the Author

Norman Mears, having walked with the Lord for over thirty-five years, strongly desires to help believers in Christ enter into deeper intimacy with God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

He has served as a deacon, an elder, and a lay-pastor—conducting home group meetings, teaching Sunday school, conducting midweek services, occasionally conducting or speaking in Sunday morning services, and ministering to individuals.

Norman has also ministered in churches in eastern Europe, ministered for a season at a maximum-security prison, and occasionally taught as a nonfaculty substitute at a local Bible college.

He waits regularly on the Lord and writes his impressions. He has compiled notes on a number of subjects, some of which have become these chapters.

Norman and his wife Vicki reside in North Carolina. They have five children, seven grandchildren, and three great grandchildren.
