Welcome to “theidolbabbler”!

I am a homeschool father of three, and I have been married since 1991. My wife became a Christian in 2000, and then The Lord converted me in 2001. At the suggestion of a friend in September of 2013, I started blogging and “theidolbabbler” was born. The purpose of “theidolbabbler” is to encourage my brothers and sisters in Christ.
