About me

Name: Paul David Brown
Born: August, 1981
Age: Do the math :)
Location: Columbus, Nebraska, USA

I was born in North Carolina but moved to Iowa when I was 8 years old, so I consider myself more of an Iowan than anything else. I went to college at Iowa State University and then at the University of Porto (Portugal) for my Master's. I worked for Peak Power Engineering, Inc. in Golden, Colorado, for about three and a half years, the moved to Omaha after Holly and I got married and continued working for them remotely for another three years. In 2013, we moved to Columbus, Nebraska, where I work for Nebraska Public Power District in their Transmission System Engineering - Protection department.

In February of 2009 I was married to my best friend and greatest encourager, Holly. It is my joy and privilege to be joined with her as "one flesh" as we pursue the Lord together. My experience confirms Prov 18:22 and Prov 31:10. Holly and I have been blessed with two children: Claire and Iain.

I love Jesus and as try to let him be the one that directs my life. My favorite Bible passage is Philippians 3:7-14. God has blessed me with many, many things in my life, but they all stack up as nothing compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ, God's greatest gift of all.

My hope is that this brief introduction is enough for you to make some sense out of my posts even if you don't know me already.


To a wonderful (totally humble) lady who loves you very much! ;)

I finally updated the text to reflect that we are married!


So, I just found your blog... And I didn't know you were married now! Wow! Congratulations my friend!
