Robert J. Morgan's Bio:
I grew up in Elizabethton, Tennessee, a mountain town near the North Carolina border. My parents were both school teachers who enjoyed their summer vacations, so I grew up loving to read and travel. After my education at Columbia International University and Wheaton Graduate School, I married my college sweetheart, Katrina, and we've been married thirty years, twenty-nine of those serving in two different churches. From 1978-1980, I was pastor of Harris Memorial Church in Greeneville, Tennessee, and since 1980, I've been the senior pastor of the Donelson Fellowship in suburban Nashville. About twelve years ago, some doors opened for me to extend my work through the written page, and my published works include:

He Shall be Called: 150 Names of Jesus in the Bible and What They Mean to You (Warner Press, 2005).

Come Let Us Adore Him - The stories behind our favorite Christmas Carols (J Countryman, 2005).

Jesus Loves Me, This I Know: The Remarkable Story Behind the World's Greatest Children's Song (J Countryman, 2006).

Then Sings My Soul (Thomas Nelson, 2002) - 150 of the world's greatest hymn stories. This was a CBA Bestseller and a Crossings Bestseller with over 750,000 copies sold. It was Books R Fun's best-selling book for 2004, winning that award in two categories: religion and general.

Then Sings My Soul, Volume 2 (Thomas Nelson, 2004). On the CBA Bestseller list.

Moments for Those With Prodigal Teenagers (NavPress, 2003) - Prayers and promises for worried parents and grandparents.

The Children's Daily Devotional Bible (Thomas Nelson, 1996) - Best-seller. Winner of the 1997 Gold Medallion for the Elementary Division. Over 100,000 in circulation.

The Red Sea Rules (Thomas Nelson, 2001)

My wife, Katrina, battles Multiple Sclerosis and is wheelchair-bound. We have three daughters and five grandchildren; and we co-own and operate Roan Mountain Bed and Breakfast in Roan Mountain, Tennessee.
