John Longworth writes spiritual non-fiction with the desire to encourage people to follow Jesus as directed by Jesus. He has worked as a farmer, teacher, business manager, and systems analyst with large computer systems. His family moved from Appalachia to Indiana in the 1940s and he grew up on a dairy farm. His religious experience began with his grandmother, Ida Taylor Parman Duke, when he was a small child and continued with attendance of fundamentalist churches until he was 19. After a fourteen year “sabbatical” from church, he returned to church to continue a life journey seeking Jesus. Life eventually led to a desire to write and speak to help make the world a better place through love as taught by Jesus.
