Stuart and Jill met each other in the context of youth ministry 60 years ago when he was a bank examiner and she was a school teacher. They married and based their life together on the biblical verse, “As for me and my household we will serve the Lord” (Joshua 24: 15). Individually and together they have written scores of books, pastored a church in the United States for thirty years, and founded Telling the Truth. Now in their eighties they continue to talk to anyone who will listen! They have three children and thirteen grandchildren.

Stuart and Jill call suburban Milwaukee, Wisconsin their home. When they are not traveling, they spend time with their three children, David, Judy and Pete, and thirteen grandchildren.
