The Writer

North Carolina native Nelson Haynes loves to write!  When he learned that Creative Writing was an elective choice for completing his Masters in Christian Education at Dallas Theological Seminary, his eyes widened with excitement.

He has journaled for over 30 years and he currently submits creative meditations for this writer’s blog and articles for Good News magazine.

Like a pair of glasses with two lenses, Nelson is thankful for a balanced perspective of the world he gained after rubbing shoulders with both the sacred and the secular worlds.

After graduating from Columbia International University he spent 15 years in full-time Youth Ministry, followed by an additional 20 years in the Disability Insurance industry.

He loves spending time with his wife and two grown daughters and one son-in-law.  He also loves to go on adventures with the family’s Labrador Retrievers, Bentley & Sadie.  Besides writing, Nelson’s secondary hobbies include movies, music, traveling, reading, photography, gardening, riding his mountain bike and painting watercolors.
