Joseph Weber

The quick version is I was raised in a Christian home and eventually I drifted away from my faith. In college, I became interested in martial arts and I spent a ton of time exploring new age spirituality, Buddhism, and Hinduism. Once I graduated from college I became a tremendous workaholic trying to live the "good life." I spent a fortune on toys and things to impress others such as a big house on a golf course, a Porsche (two in fact), a Rolex, and all sorts of stuff I could not afford. A crisis of career and my health caused me to re-examine my beliefs, faith, religion, and my new age thinking. Praise God because I came back to him and on June 29, 2002, I committed my life to The Lord. My life has radically changed for the better. I certainly have had my share of problems since that time, however, I now have a solid foundation in The Lord and I have become happier, stronger, and more loving throughout the years. You have to buy me a coffee to hear the rest of the story - see my favorite coffee below (lol).

My Life

Favorite Quote

“There is but one good; that is God. Everything else is good when it looks to Him and bad when it turns from Him.” C.S. Lewis

Friends describe me

Funny, dedicated, a good listener, and a small bit OCD (smile)

My hobbies

Love hiking, spending time outdoors, attending conferences, and learning something new every day!

Fantasy dinner guests

J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Warren Lewis, Chuck Norris (yes, the karate guy turned Christian). I have a black belt in karate too. I thought if I get in over my head with Tolkien and Lewis, I will send in Chuck to rescue me!

Best advice I ever received

Never, ever quit! My mom gave me that advice. She said, always stand strong in The Lord and no matter what happens, He has you covered!

Nobody knows I

My brother and I frequently performed chemistry experiments...in the garage...unsupervised...we had some minor explosions and I once passed out from fumes. Humm...maybe this is why I eventually didn't like chemistry classes - too many near death experiences as a child from chemistry (lol)

My latest accomplishment

I'm just finishing to be a C.S. Lewis Fellow in the C.S. Lewis Fellows Institute. Absolutely love it!! Transformational program reading some of the greatest authors of Christian apologetics in the last 100 years!
