Hi, My name is Bob Smith. I am a happily married conservative Christian writer and I live in Rochester, New York with my lovely wife.

I am a narrow-minded Christian but like to think of myself as just broad-minded enough for God's use. (I am just not accepting of all human belief and behavior). I'm dogmatic on Scripture as the sole rule of truth and practice, but everything else is up for debate. I believe I am teachable, but because of that narrow-mindedness, I am not often budged from what I see as basic truths.

I have attended Logos Bible Institute and American International Bible Institute. I most enjoy writing inspirational and doctrinal articles from Scripture. The idea of family is also very precious to me and there are many articles here about healthy family life, and recently about my interest in music.

I began my writing career after high school. I first published a help newsletter for newly adopting parents who had adopted crossing the line of racial differences. It dealt with the care of skin, hair, and also the coming social struggles that their child would face being a person of color (especially those with "white" parents). I next published a church newsletter called "Look Up And Not Down" for two years. I've had other small projects and, of course, Hubpages.

I have known much pain in my life, and it is said that pain matures a person quickly. My pain has helped me in various ways to be the man I am today. Now after retiring from the human service field after 40 years, I have rededicated my life to loving God and serving Him. It is a very exciting life when you live it with God.

Since my retirement, I have fulfilled a childhood dream of learning a musical instrument. I now am the contact person for the Upper New York State Chapter of the United States Ocarina Association.

I'm on Facebook. Come follow me on Facebook and enjoy some good reading. Feel free to chat and/or drop me a line or ask a question.

May you be blessed by my writing, my life, and my friendship. With much Christian love, Bob Smith (No Body).
