Continue Reading Daniel Boerman grew up in a close-knit Christian family in the small Dutch Reformed farming community of Oakland, Michigan. He received degrees in psychology and ministry from Calvin College and Calvin Theological Seminary. After God closed the door on ministry, he settled into a hardware career, working at Gemmen’s Hardware in Hudsonville and Modern Hardware in Grand Rapids. His more than twenty-five articles, not to mention his short stories and poems, have appeared in numerous periodicals, including the Storyteller, Mature Living, Evangel, the Pegasus Review, the Cresset, Touchstone, the Banner, Restoration Quarterly, the Church Herald, and Prism. Boerman lives in Hudsonville, Michigan, with Linda, his wife of thirty-two years. He enjoys working in his vegetable garden, selling produce at his roadside stand, and reading literature, theology, and history.
