Hey, I'm glad to be here. I'm looking forward to participating in discussions, sharing and learning with you all. I've been a follower of Jesus for over 30 years. I'm happily married to my girlfriend--25 years and counting. I have an 18 year old daughter, 11 year old son--both homeschooled. We live on our hobby farm in Oregon with our boer goats and honeybees. I'm a clinical social worker trained in psychotherapy, serve as the head elder in my church, and blog at www.jonbeaty.com.
