What are you reading, Jim Creech?

I recently finished Donald Miller's A Million Miles in a Thousand Years: How I Learned to Live a Better Story, and I would recommend it enthusiastically to others! Readers will be hooked from the start by Miller's unique and disarming style, and the stories that he shares will definitely keep the pages turning. Above all, however, this book is a sweet reminder to pay attention to the stories that our own lives are writing.

We are excited to have James "Jim" Creech head up the Fall 2011 semester's round of "What are you reading" submissions. Jim currently holds a private optometry practice in Temecula and still manages to teach an Environmental Science class here at HIU. Indeed, his talents are many and varied, and have manifested themselves in both a Doctor of Optometry and a Masters in Biblical Studies and Theology. His skills have taken him from a medical post in the U.S. Navy to an associate pastorship at First Christian Church in Santa Maria. Jim has five children and will be celebrating his 40th year of marriage to Kimberly this November.
