J. Thomas

J. Thomas lives in New Jersey with his 5-year-old daughter who loves being read The Daisybears and the Great Door

As a religion major at Dartmouth College, he studied philosophy, biblical studies, and the sociology of income inequality. He has worked as a youth pastor, a corporate paralegal, and has been working in the affordable housing industry for the past 15 years.

When he’s not writing, J. Thomas plays guitar to express his love and worship for Jesus. During the pandemic, he also picked up a new hobby, tweeting under @dryandbarren where he enjoys translating mainstream Christian truths for our generation.

He writes about his journey as a newly divorced father in his blog Best For Katie: A Blog For Fathers Who Do It All at bestforkatie.com

Last year, J. Thomas published his writings in a Christian blog Dry and Barren Land: Walking Through Spiritual Drought.
