Warren is currently employed as a supervisor in the environmental department at a Midwestern electric utility company. The Lord Jesus Christ has been the love of his life since he was born again as a young man in 1979. Warren was raised in the Milwaukee area and attended church but never studied the Bible. He was just "going through the motions" of religion when he met a deacon from a different church who showed him what the Bible says about our sinful condition and how to be forgiven through faith in Jesus Christ. This spiritual birth resulted in a radical change in behavior that almost ended his marriage. Even though it might have cost him everything, he committed that he would not deny the change that he had experienced or the new love of his life. God honored this and his wife, Diane, was born again about one year later. Warren's children, a son and daughter, accepted Jesus as Savior when they were young. Today Mindy and Jacob are married and Warren has three grandchildren. His love for Gods Word led him to join the Gideons in 1988. He has spoken in over 100 churches, served as a deacon, taught Sunday School and many small groups. Through daily Bible reading and prayer for the past 27 years, Warren has come to realize the fundamental need for understanding and memorizing scripture. Many Christians limit their relationship with Jesus by relying on others to define it through religious observances and beliefs. Warren believes there is no substitute for searching the Bible to better know God and walk in his ways. Theologians and other Christians can be helpful but should not replace or define the personal relationship with Jesus. This belief led him to write his first book titled Truth Seeker: Straight Talk From The Bible in 2005. Since then Warren has written six books and over twenty articles for two Christian web sites. Warren runs three miles two or three times per week. He says that running teaches him to focus on the fundamentals. Through the discipline and pain of running, he has realized that life is an endurance race that requires us to set our thoughts on Jesus for strength to complete the course set before us (Hebrews 12:1-2).
