** Note to the dpReview forum community **
I am no longer posting on dpReview, but will respond to emails or private messages. Fifteen years and 7,777 posts are quite enough for one lifetime.
By the end of 2019, I hope to have several of my threads re-created and posted to my website at
This is a project I am undertaking due to loss of the images which are an essential part of those threads.

To have great value, life and knowledge must last, therefore we should first seek eternal truth and life, available to us through the abounding love and grace of our Savior.
I find inspiration from the following authors and works, which have my highest recommendation. Please do not miss reading at least a few of these!
The Word: Holy Bible. H. A. Baker, Rolland and Heidi Baker: various. Pastor Surprise Sithole: Voice in the Night. Mel Tari: Like a Mighty Wind. Dr. James Maloney: various. Guillermo Maldonado: various. Anna Rountree: Heaven Awaits the Bride. Dale and Paula Black: various. Rev. Elwood Scott: 40 days in Heaven, the story of Seneca Sodi. Praying Medic: Made Simple Series. Blake Healy: The Veil. Howard Storm: various.
