    Episode 66: Norm Schriever

    in Writing

    Join Jerry and Jackie as they finally get a much-wanted in-person interview with show regular Norm Schriever. 
    Norm Schriever is a humorist, cultural mad scientist, enemy of the comfort zone and author of "Pushups in the Prayer Room," a wild, irreverent account of a year spent backpacking around the world. He grew up in Connecticut and graduated from the University of Connecticut, where he was never accused of over-studying, and went on to live in North Carolina, Colorado and most recently in Northern California.  Dissatisfied with a conventional existence, Norm sold or donated all of his possessions and moved down to Costa Rica in 2011 to pursue his passion of writing. His first book was written in the sleepy surf town of Tamarindo with the help of his secret weapons: fresh ocean air and Baileys in his morning coffee. He now resides in San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua where he is writing his next book, 'Get Happy,' a memoir about life as an ex pat, and writing for the Huffington Post. He sees his words as a way to illuminate the commonalities of human existence, and thereby hopes to leave this planet a little better than how he found it.

    in Prayer

    In HIS WORD GOD calls the Church to be ready for immediate action and to be prepared for

    coming events. The implication is that we will needto draw strength from HIM and that we will

    need to stand in the empowerment of HIS might. Events will be such that the Church will need to

    be fully conscious of her union with HIM. No longer will we be able to simply have theories about the LORD.

    Our very survival, existense and hope will be tested. Recieve HIS strength today. Join us for live prayer at 6:00 AM,
