My name Eldon Yoder.
I was born in Guatemala where my parents where missionaries in the late 80’s.
I am the middle of five children. All told there are three boys and two girls. As I said, I’m right in the middle of all of them.
That little guy in the picture at the top of the page. He’s my nephew. He’s brilliant… He’s also one of my favorite people in the world.
I am a Christian. I believe that what the Bible says is true and I try to pattern my life and all that I do after it.
What I Do
Lately I’ve been doing a lot of marketing for my Dad’s farm. Marketing is fascinating to me…
I’ve been writing words for quite some time. They don’t always make a lot of sense, but I find I process a subject in a deeper and different way when I write about a it.
I drink a lot of coffee. Probably too much. Current favorite is Lavazza made with an Aeropress. (Those are affiliate links. You can help me pay for my habit, at no extra cost to yourself, by clicking those links and buying stuff.)
I actually enjoy writing. When I have something to write about.
I grew up and live on a farm. Like a real farm. I love the country.
I dropped out of college. I don’t recommend it necessarily.
I shave my beard about once a week. Just because.
I lived in Guatemala for a year. Half of that year I navigated a river with a boat. I tried to learn Spanish while I was there and can generally get along in a conversation. But this takes my “hacker” mentality to a whole new level.
As much as I love my hand-held technologies and computers I still like to scribble notes on paper. I now use Google Keep for notes and todo lists.
And I think that’s enough for now, thanks for stopping by.
