JR Thompson was born and raised in West Virginia. For more than fifteen years he worked with at-risk youth there. He married and moved to a small ghost town in Montana, where God called him to preach. He now serves as an assistant pastor in a neighboring town.
On more of a negative note, JR humbly admits that he is an addict – that’s right, he can never get enough Dr. Pepper and has been that way for years.
In addition to writing and ministerial work, Thompson loves the outdoors – he and his wife enjoy going camping in tents (and they make sure to take their bear spray with them – especially since a blackbear got inside their Jeep and ripped up the seats in recent months), hiking, and doing anything to enjoy the beauty of God’s creation.
