About Mark Anthony

Name:  Mark Anthony Escalera, Sr

Personal:  I am a sinner saved by grace, and learning every day how much more I need the Lord directing my life.  In a graceless world, my desire is to show to others the grace that has been extended to me.  My lovely wife, Violet, and I have been married for almost 25 years and we have been blessed with five children with the oldest three proudly serving in the US Air Force.

My passion is writing and teaching others about the wonderful grace of God!  Humbled that He would choose me as one of His children! I also have 6-8 books that I am reading at any one time. Quotes from these books will eventually be found here on my blog.

I am originally from Ipswich, England, and hold dual citizenship with the UK and the USA. I served in England as a mission pastor from 2002-2007, and our family has many fond memories of the time we spent in Suffolk. We do like football (soccer to the Americans here) and although not a Premier League team, we do support Ipswich Town Football Club. Currently, our family lives in the beautiful state of Wyoming where we enjoy rock climbing, hiking, and trying to stay warm during the cold months.

Preferred translation:   English Standard Version (ESV)

Currently studying:   Ecclesiastes

Currently reading:    1) The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment by Jeremiah Burroughs; 2) James Gilmour of Mongolia – a missionary biography.
