In essence I communicate down to earth stories that shed light on everyday life.

My name is Ernie Heavin. I’m passionate about serving people and writing. I have 30 years of serving as a pastor/chaplain and 20 years as a library assistant at Georgetown College. My writing experience includes publishing four books (three from a traditional publisher) and various articles for Kentucky Christian Magazine, the Georgetonian and Lexington Herald Leader among numerous human interest stories on my website. In essence I communicate down to earth stories that shed light on everyday life.

Thank you for visiting my website,



Birth Place: Enid, OK USA

Accomplishments: I've been married to the same woman for 30 years. I have two wonderful Christian daughters. That's quite an achievement!

I am a retired pastor of 29 years and for the past 19 years have been working at Georgetown College and for 16 years have served as a volunteer chaplain for the staff. I have had several books published but now just write short stories and articles. I think outside the box, but tend to look in it from time to time to see what can still be used.
