  1. Hi all. I saw this was a friendly Christian forum and thought, "Just what I'm looking for!", so I signed up. Not to say that there aren't other friendly sites, but a quick skim through says this looks the best I've found.

    Anyway, my name's Andrew Bernhardt, and I live in the tiny town of Beatty, Nevada, just east of Death Valley. (It has been a tad warm lately, but I've gotten used to it.) I moved here from South Jersey 26 years ago, and I've been blissfully married to my wife, Wanda, since 1999.

    I like reading (Christian bios, CS Lewis, Tolkien), playing piano (classical and praise), listening to music like Brooklyn Tabernacle, Damaris Carbaugh, Michael Card, Fernando Ortega, J M Talbot, and Maranatha! Praise, sci fi, hiking and some off-roading, Bible study, writing, and computer programming. I've been online since the mid-80's, when I wrote and sold an electronic bulletin board system for the C64. I also used to draw very difficult mazes (which I have on my website).

    I'm an elder at my church, where I sometimes teach an adult class or fill in for the pastor. I also recently wrote my first book on discipleship called Seeing Jesus - A Disciple's Perspective. My goal in life is to help other believers to a closer knowledge and walk with Jesus.

    I'm introverted and not talkative by nature. I used to hate to write and talk. I still find it difficult at times to write... the words don't always come to me like with most people. (It usually takes me an hour or so to put together a few sentences on a greeting card. :rolleyes: ) So, I don't post as much as others, but when I do, the perfectionist in me tries to do the best possible.

    I guess that's enough about me... for now at least.

  10. Welcome the forums Andrew!
    Checking our your book and sites now.
    I also play a little keys :whistle:
  11. I practiced as a child for 10 years beginning around 1968. My dad taught me at first. (He still teaches piano!) I hated practice, and stopped playing for another 10.

    When I moved to Beatty and got involved in the local church, I picked up a cheap keyboard and started accompanying the pianist and organist. This helped me learn how to sightread. Now I have an Alesis QS8 and still play for my church. I consider myself a good amateur, but I don't have the time for serious practice.
  12. Hi, how are you doing? good to see you; God bless His Word to you.
  13. Welcom to the forum
