Herb and Carol Munson
Who am I? Well, I'm a husband, a dad, a grandpa, a guy who loves God's Word, but most of all I am a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ. I have been a pastor of four churches and led numerous bible studies over the years. I have two degrees, a BS in Biblical Literature from Multnomah University (at the time known as Multnomah School of the Bible) in Portland, Oregon, and a BA in English Literature from New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
I have also been a truck driver, a courier for a hospital, a manager of two real estate offices, a mortgage broker and a medical office manager. Right now, I am semi-retired and live in San Antonio, Texas, where I work with my son, Dave, in his Saddleback Leather Company … an Internet business Dave set up to support missions. He and his wife, Suzette, manufacture and sell the world's coolest handmade leather products including luggage, briefcases, duffle bags, travel cases, backpacks, satchels, iPad sleeves, gadget pouches, wallets, desk pads and so on. You can check them out at: http://www.saddlebackleather.com. Oh yeah, for a real treat don't miss Dave’s tribute to his black lab, Blue, when you go there. He was Dave's constant companion during his single years and the founding of Saddleback.
Carol and I have five children: Jeanne, Patricia, Deborah, David and Jonathan. We also have fourteen grandchildren and two great grandchild. Our oldest daughter, Jeanne, and her husband, Tim, live in Keller, Texas, near Fort Worth. They adopted a little girl from Russia, named Maria, bringing their family to five. Patricia has four children and also lives in Keller. She and her husband, Dennis, own Chamberlain Shipping, LLC, a fulfillment shipping company that looks after Saddleback Leather Company's quality control and shipping. Deborah has 3 grown children, one grandchild, and is working on her Culinary Arts Diploma. She and her husband Jaime are actively involved in prison ministry and advocacy and reform. Jonathan, our youngest, served in the Marine Corps as a Marine Security Guard at the American Embassies in London and also in Tunis, Tunisia, graduated from Wheaton, and currently works with Chamberlain Leather Milk (http://www.leather-milk.com/) in development and marketing.
Our first great-grandchild, Avalyn Kay Franklin, came along to our grandson, Aiden, and his wife, Cinnamon, and our second, Wyatt Anthony Clanton, to our grandson, Jacob, and his wife Renee. Truly, our cup runneth over!
Finally, one of my life goals is to write commentaries on four books of the Bible ... Genesis, Daniel, Matthew and Revelation ... and make them available in a set. These four books are uniquely linked together in presenting the whole picture of end time prophecy in the Bible. I have completed the Genesis commentary which I call First Work, also the Daniel commentary called Kingdom Work and the Revelation commentary called Strange Work. Matthew is still under construction and will be called King's Work.
