Author Biography

Answered prayers bridged hundreds of miles when Tim and Debbie Bishop discovered one another and became first-time newlyweds at age 52. Then, they hopped on bicycles, cycled over 10,000 miles throughout the United States, and lived to tell about it. They do just that in several coauthored books filled with encouragement, hope, wisdom, adventure, and fun. With backgrounds in business, teaching, and coaching, the Bishops bring a strong Christian foundation to their inspirational self-help books.
