** Most asked question**

"May I quote or reference your original material for a paper I'm doing? What is it you do?"

YES! My preference is to merely cite "ProvetheBible.net". I'm the sole author of any original material on this site. If you must go by the Chicago Manual of Style, inquire for details. (Always do so for the published works of others.)

I'm an architectural designer. I don't have a personal online portfolio, but my work can be seen here and here.

My background and how I came to believe in Jesus at age 28 is explained here.
