Hi, my name is Roy Troyer. I grew up Amish in Holmes county Ohio in a family of 11 children. I live in Holmes county once again and have a little family of my own now. Featured in the picture above is my wife Mary Sue, and my son Oliver Lewis.
Lacking television growing up, I spent many hours reading books. I had, and still have, a great desire to learn new things–especially how life works. But it all remained a mystery to me until I received the Holy Spirit at 19. Before this, darkness and confusion reigned in my life. I struggled mentally and emotionally. I did a lot of drugs and drank a lot.
But after receiving Christ into my life–and a little later, being baptized in the Holy Spirit–light shone into my life, and darkness crept back. The Spirit of God illuminated more and more. I began to understand some of God’s design. I also began to have victories in my life that I never imagined were attainable. This is an ongoing process, and I give God all the glory.
My aim on this site is to blog about these little nuggets God has given me, and share them with those who are interested. I hope I can be an inspiration to some. To shine a light in this dark world as God enables me.
I also write about politics. I think believers have given up ground in so many areas in which they once carried great influence. Politics is one of these. I hope to contribute my small portion in restoring some Christian influence in politics.
I have other aspirations as a writer as well. If God grants these to come into fruition, you will see them featured on this site. For now, please feel welcome to browse through my blog-posts. Comments are welcome; I only ask that you keep them civil and respectful.
