Where We Are Now

After finding and remediating mold twice in our Colorado home, we abandoned ship in October 2008. Because of the high levels of exposure, our entire family was affected. After months of seeing different specialists for all of the problems, we came to Arizona to begin comprehensive treatment to rid our bodies of the toxic buildup. In August 2009 we moved into a larger home, four bedrooms, south of Tucson, north of Mexico. I am doing my daily radio program/ writing from that location. Thanks for praying for us. We really feel it.

This is exactly how I remember Jim Warren.
A phone to his ear, a newspaper in his hand, a big calendar behind him, and his Bible open. Jim knew that just covering news wasn't enough. Other outlets could do that well and had more staff. What they weren't airing was a Christian perspective of news events. So every day he took us to places and into people's lives who were on the front lines--and around the world.

Jim had a heart for people going through difficulty. He had a heart for people who were struggling. He loved music. He loved to laugh. In fact, he actually played ME singing a song I had written specifically for April 15th called, When My Taxes Are All Done. I sang as "Johnny OutaCash" and Jim howled.

Today Jim entered heaven. No more radio programs, no more pain. I'm sure he's already seen many friends he interviewed over the years. Francis Schaeffer. Jerry Falwell. He and Brandt Gustavson are probably telling some Moody stories. In fact, he's probably met D.L. already.

We mourn with Jean and the rest of the family. But we also rejoice in his homegoing. He's been promoted. While we still look through the glass darkly, Jim now sees his Savior face to face. That is our blessed hope.

It was Jean's birthday. Poignant. Also it was the day that Joel's mom passed away in 1996. We are imagining Jim finding her in Heaven, sitting down, and telling her that Joel is now married and has a baby son - what she always wanted for him. Of course, she probably already knows, but what a great thought.

Amen, Chris! Jim was a gentle giant of a man - a godly, creative, joyful man. I had the honor of working with him for almost 10 years on Family Forum, and have been in and out of touch with him over the past few. It is a hard good - hard for us, but oh, so very, very good for Jim. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with all of us!

Chris: I had the honor of working with Jim on Family Forum for a number of years. He was a kind, gracious giant of a man - godly, funny, intuitive, thoughtful. It is a hard good, as someone told me recently. So very hard for us, and especially for Jean and the family, but so very, very good for Jim. Can you imagine - seeing Jesus' face! Maranatha!
