About the Author

The Shepherd’s Pen is simply a journal venue to share biblical understandings of the shepherding paradigm (Shepherd to Shepherd), church and ministry reflections (Musings from a Shepherd’s Pen), and philosophical forays (Something to Chew On), all from a shepherd’s perspective.   May it be a comfort, encouragement, and reminder that you are not alone in your journey.
