Wow. Where do I start?  Ok…

Who We Are:
We are the Randleman family. Jeff, Heather, and seven wonderful kids: Hannah, Lydia, Titus, Jadon, Abigail, Jude, and Mercy Dawn. (Insert your large family comment here… I’ve probably already heard it.) I am the lead minister at Cabool Christian Church, in Cabool, Missouri.

My Passion:
One of my main passions is creationism. I believe that we can take the Bible literally; when God says he created the earth and the universe in six, 24-hour days, I believe that is exactly what he did. I believe that he did that around 6000 years ago, and that the earth is NOT millions or billions of years old.

I believe that a flood covered the entire globe in the days of Noah, around 4500 years ago, and that eight people were saved in the ark.  And I believe that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is our ark.

One of my hobbies is landscape and nature photography.  I’ve posted a few images here, but have built another website to showcase some of my best shots. You can find it at Jeff Randleman Photography. Connected to my photography, I love being outdoors. I love to hike, bike, kayak, camp… I love being outside with a camera and a piece of beef jerky, usually Jack Links.

I also enjoy coffee.  I enjoy it a lot.  I have begun roasting my own and selling it locally to friends and family.  I built a website around it, which you can check out at Coffeelogical.com.

Another interest is reading.  I love to read.  I read  anything that sparks a passing interest in my mind.  Favorite topics include Creation, American History, and Leadership.  Some of my favorite authors include Ted Dekker, Tom Clancy, Henry Morris and Jonathan Sarfati. As a result of this, I have connected with several publishers and review books for them. You will find those reviews on this blog.

I also love to collect and examine coins.  Right now,  my favorites are Jefferson nickels and Franklin half dollars, although I collect much more.  You can learn a lot of our history by examining coins. This is a fairly recent interest that has become quite a main hobby of mine. I can sit and examine coinage for hours, simply enjoying the detail, the history, and for me, the particular tone/hue/color a coin develops as it ages. I especially love the way the Roosevelt dimes tone.

The Wrap-Up:
Well, that about wraps it up. As I think of more stuff about myself and my family, I’m sure it will find it’s way here…
