Ken Pierpont is a pastor at heart, who loves people. He loves his wife, he loves his children, he loves God and he loves life. This love spills over into each of his stories. Everywhere he looks he sees extraordinary truths about God demonstrated in ordinary people and common places. He is the father of eight children and he has been a rural and small-town pastor for nearly twenty-five years starting the summer after his junior year in high school when he was only seventeen years old.
Ken likes to say, “My life goal is to communicate the truth of God and nudge everyone who reads my stories one step closer to Jesus.” His stories have done just that for thousands of his readers.
Ken contributed to Chicken Soup for the Grandparent’s Soul before he himself was a grandfather. You can order this book on-line. The story chosen by Chicken Soup was an old favorite he has told for years about something he discovered about his grandfather many years after his death.
Ken’s story A Wrinkle in my Hood was published in one of Alice Gray’s story collections. Ken has spoken to groups of young people frequently and often tells stories, including the story published here, when he speaks.
You can read a version of the story here and see a picture of Holly and the car she wrinkled.
Ken contributes to each issue of the Home school Digest.
