About David Ettinger

Thank you for visiting my web page!

IMG_0759 - Copy (2)Born and raised in a Jewish family in New York, I moved to New Mexico in 1979. I got married in 1980, earned my BA in English in 1981, became a father in 1983, earned my MA in English in 1985, got divorced in 1986, and gave my life to Jesus Christ that same year. I have been walking with the Lord ever since.

I began my journalism career in 1980, writing for The Roundup, the school paper of New Mexico State University. In 1981, I became a sportswriter for the Las Cruces (New Mexico) Sun-News, and eventually became an editor. I worked at the El Paso (Texas) Herald-Post as an editor/writer from 1987-1997. I worked at the El Paso Times in the same capacity from 1997-2001.

In 2001, I moved to Orlando, FL, where I was the writer/editor at The Holy Land Experience until 2005. I served as writer/editor at First Baptist Church of Orlando from 2005-2010. I currently work at Zion’s Hope, Inc. in Winter Garden, Florida. I also taught English Comp at Valencia College in Orlando from 2010-2012.

I have been published in various Lifeway publications, Single Parent magazine (Focus on the Family), Zion’s Fire magazine, and Real Life magazine. Additionally, I served as managing editor for Zion’s Fire and Real Life. In all, I have written more than 800 articles, about 300 of which are Christian-related.

My book, Overcomers: 30 Stories of Triumph from the Bible, was released in May 2015.

  2. You got me at Focus on the Family! (I mean, I had already clicked the follow button before that, but you know what I mean….) James Dobson helped raise my three children! Glad to have found your site!


  3. I am so glad that I found your blog, David. I have really been enjoying your posts, they are so informative and, from what I know about theology, your posts are right on.


  4. Looking forward to sharing with you David, one thing I respect greatly in Men is when they stand firm on God’s Truth, it shows Strength of Character and Integrity.

    Christian Love and Blessings – Anne.
