Jim Ertel

Jim is a husband, dad and grandpa. He and his wife of 50 years have raised two children, both happily married. Between the two, they have blessed Jim and Shirley with six grandchildren. Jim writes articles for parents and family but especially likes writing stories for middle school grade readers with enough excitement and intrigue to keep them reading. Like a tapestry, virtues and values are woven into the fabric of these stories. Jim says, “I’ve discovered only a few things that truly matter: God’s unconditional love, the love that my wife has bestowed upon me and the joy of family.” His desire is to help build strong families through story telling.
