Welcome to my personal web site! God forbid that I should convey to the world any good in my life. I give credit to the Lord Jesus for anything that emanates from this website. I am a total failure as a person, that only Jesus has resurrected and given new hope for the future. From this one web page, you can access over two hundred and fifty pages I have authored on my experiences living as a Christian in the business world. Be sure and read the article in the table of contents (web map) on three ways to make a million dollars. One recent web page is "My Exciting Escape from Prison". The link is at the left of this page. It is an interactive site, and gives you the opportunity to worship God with me.

In November 2012, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and have finished radiation to destroy the cancer. Prayers from my web site friends are appreciated and coveted. I went through radiation treatment for forty four days, and the Lord chose to cure me. My PSA blood test is now at .02 after starting at 8.3. If you want to be updated on this, just join my email list. I also had knee replacement surgery on my left knee on Sep 17, 2013, and am recovering nicely.

During the radiation, I spent a lot of time meditating on God's Word and just plain worshipping the Lord. He gave me some really exciting thoughts about heaven and what was to come in my life.

I have created a web page, to tell this story. I am writing about my experiences.


My most important part of this site is the link on making disciples. I hope I can encourage you to do that. Many men and women around the world are actively involved in this work of my ministry. Thanks to God for those folks. I pray for them on a regular basis. They are my lifeline to eternity, and someday friends in Tanzania and India and many other countries of the world will get to meet me in person at the feet of Jesus. What a reunion that will be one day in heaven to meet these dear friends in the Lord.! It will be real special to meet the young mother from Indiana, who came to me in desperation about to commit suicide in January 2006. God allowed me to help her back to sanity, and now she is a productive Mom of two precious children. She became my adopted daughter. What a joy to my heart to see her walking with the Lord today.

Here are some of my favorite links. I hope you will learn from my mistakes. But I also hope you will learn from my victories. God is in charge, and He wants to change our lives.
Let me show you how you can now refer customers to your own website about stem cells, and earn a nice income.

Look around at my Table of Contents (My Web Map), and see if any of the articles might be of help to you in your business or personal life. Please bookmark this site, since I change it on a daily basis. You may see previews of articles I am writing in Table of Contents.

The things of which I write are geared to help the everyday person who struggles with the complexities of life. The Christian life is not a "bed or roses" but is strewn with thorn bushes, which God delights in pruning and cultivating, until we become more like Him.

During May 2002, the Lord encouraged me with this promise from his Word. "He has already tended you by pruning you back for greater strength and usefulness, by means of the commands I gave you." John 15:3 (Living Bible Paraphrase)

Until the day I die, my credo is "I am guilty, I am guilty, I am guilty." I have failed Him many times, but He is still there. That's the way God operates.

Many years ago I heard a story about a famous theologian named Karl Barth, who had a tremendous grasp of the Scriptures. He had studied many years, and was a sought after speaker. One day, someone asked him what the greatest theological discovery he had made during his life. He thought for some time and finally stated,

"Jesus loves me this I know, for the Bible tells me so!"

All of his years of study and meditation had left him with one indelible impression. The song he had learned as a small child, burned in his mind and the simplicity of this truth jumped to the forefront of his mind after he was confronted with this question.

So as I thought about how I would like to communicate my life to the world, I developed this site:

Are you a defeated Christian today? Many of the folks I meet on line and know in person are? As you read through some of my articles, you will see that I have not "arrived". I have many flaws in my life. As the old saying goes, "Please be patient with me, God is not finished with me yet!" As I look at the Biblical examples of marriage, I do not see that there are many "living happily ever after" stories.

Life is a real struggle. The Devil is the "Prince of this world" and he works a lot of overtime to defeat Christians.

One way that he defeats people is getting people deep in debt. I can help you out of the "debt hole" if you will learn from an old dog like me who made so many mistakes.

In Luke 4: 18,19, Jesus stated his mission statement. "Preaching good news to the poor, proclaim freedom for the prisoners, and recovery of sight for the blind, and to release the oppressed, and to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." I thought to myself sometime ago, that this is the perfect mission statement for our world today. Why not make that my Mission Statement? I did. Click on the link below to read about that. America is indeed a prisoner to debt, and most folks that have money are indeed poor in spirit, not trusting God in their lives. Most are blinded to the real job we have as believers, of proclaiming Him to the world.

If you will access this link on Becoming Debt Free, you can see a practical plan to help you achieve that goal.

I have literally poured my life into the making of this site. I have lived it, messed up in a horrible way, but have survived so far to keep you from making the same stupid mistakes I made. Learn a great lesson here, and save yourself some real grief later on in your life.

You may learn from some of the dumb mistakes I have made over the years, and profit from advice I have gleaned through years of bondage to debt. What better way to reach the world, than help them to get out of debt.

My friend, God is in charge. He wants to make you like Jesus. He does that through adversity. My goal in life and death, is to hear those words of the Son of God, as I pass from this life to eternity. "Well done, my good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your reward!"

The Internet is a practical way to reach the world for Christ. If my family so desires, my words and experiences can last far longer than I will, and they can continue to publish this site, long after I have gone on to be with the Lord.

Here is a little bit about my personal life.

Jim Young

My name is Jim Young, and I live in Yorktown, Virginia. I am a Christian businessman who has had some measure of success in the business world, and discovered the world of the Internet a few years ago. I hate watching television, and have found that I can have some exciting and fun times visiting with folks around the world.

I have written many pages which you may access from my table of contents. As things progressed over the last few years, I realized that while I give great emphasis to the work of God in my life in my website, I would like to associate the title of my page to the Person who has influenced my life more than anyone else in the world.

Hence, my renewed emphasis is on Jesus. He is the glue that holds my life together. Colossians 1:17 states, "And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist." My main objective in life is fulfilling The Great Commission given to us by the Lord Jesus Christ. It is simply, "Go into all the world." Wow, what better way to do that than through the Internet. My website publishes the gospel in several languages. Please look for your language if you do not speak or understand English well.

My objective is to teach folks, using my past record as a real estate investor and building contractor, and my knowledge of the Internet, coupled with my honest reflection of my mistakes in life to guide you.

Perhaps I can teach you something about what I have learned in the last few years, and perhaps I can even steer you clear of some of the dumb mistakes I have made in my life. Believe me when I tell you that I have made plenty of these.

Perhaps you are not interested in the business aspect of my site. I hope you will just want to be friends.

Some folks misunderstand my intentions on the Internet, and they do not like it when I mix business with spiritual things. I believe that a person's business and spiritual life are very much entwined.

The Bible says, that "Whatsoever you do, do it heartily as to the Lord". So all the businesses that I have chosen to affiliate myself with on the Internet, are intended to be helpful to those whom I contact. All of these business websites help us to save money and use our resources wisely.

I do not promote get rich quick schemes, and many of the links on my site are totally free.

Let me tell you that I give credit to God for any money and success I have made in this life. In the perilous world of business, real estate, and construction, I could just as easy be a pauper in the financial world tomorrow, with some turn of fate.

As Paul the apostle said, "I do not trust in uncertain riches", but in the living God who makes us all spiritual millionaires. You know that He owns the cattle on a thousand hills, and if you are a believer, you are a joint heir with the Lord Jesus Christ, and you have unlimited resources if you trust in Him.

Hope you enjoy what you see here, and come back and visit often. Please send my link to this page to a friend.
