Who I am: I am a child of God who loves to go to the Bible and ask the question, “If these things be so, what manner of person ought I then to be? God has designed me with a “So then, what?” brain. Then, to help me find and share answers, I was saved at 5, raised as a missionary child in India, earned a MD in psychiatry and worked as an ordained minister helping thousands of my brothers and sisters find practical answers in God’s Word. I want the Lord to be worshiped for his caring, practical wisdom and see lives changed as a result.

My credentials: Missionary child so I understand what ideas are cultural and what are universal. Observed the technology cited in the Bible, as nothing had changed in 4000 years in rural India. I watched the oxen treading out the corn and food being ground in a mortar and pestle etc. I grew up constantly studying the Bible and helping reach my classmates for Christ. I earned an MD and went on to become a board certified Psychiatrist. I have helped people apply God’s word practically to the worst possible life realities and never found a need to water it down. I have worked for 4 years for the USAF and served in state hospitals, community mental health centers and private practice. I am currently the doctor in charge of the partial hospital program at Pine Rest Christian Hospital in Grand Rapids Michigan. More importantly, I have been saved by the blood of Jesus Christ and walked with him in friendship as fellow laborers, sufferers, servants and builders since 1955. I have been married since 1970 and helped raise 5 children and now 10 grandchildren.

Thank you for your service. I will never forget my experience as your patient and the wonderful tapes you made available to me.
I do my blogs mostly for my own growth since I get so few comments so it is pleasant to have an encouraging comment such as yours. Any particular questions or issues you would like me to ponder and share my ruminations on? They would be most gratefully accepted.
Hi Dr. Bell you do great work! It was a pleasure working with you. Please email me I need a letter or Recommendation if possible.
