Charles L Stambaugh grew up in York, PA. He became a Christian, in his bedroom when he was in the ninth grade. He had heard the Gospel since he was a child but never accepted salvation until reading a book called This Way to Happiness by Clyde Narramore. He attended York Gospel Center in his youth and presently Church of the Open Door of York Pa. He has a wife Susan, two sons and two granddaughters. He graduated with a BS in Radio and TV from Liberty University 74-78. He spent over 45 years in church media ministries and several years in various church children programs. His employment as been in the control electronics field (38 years) and as a part time tax collector.
     On April 29, 2014, he had a near death experience. Through that experience, the Lord directed Charles to walk away from church media and start a monthly devotion ministry. He started with a hand full of email addresses. He received an overwhelming response and has so much material to share that in a few months, he was lead to design and start this website. He is not a pastor, nor is ordained. He considers himself a conservative fundamental independent that uses the King James Version but he does not consider himself aggressive, legalist nor dogmatic. His beliefs are attached.
    This website is a part of New Heart Beat Devotions, an email
devotional ministry, started by Charles on September 1, 2014 with a
handful of readers. The website was launched five months later, March
1, 2015. At the September one year anniversary, the website contained
24 illustrated devotions, 45 mini devotions, 22 quotes, 4 white papers
and 150 Bible chapter outlines written by Charles, with over 70 illustrated
jokes. At the one year anniversary of the website, it was switched to a
free sever and updated with a improved website builder with a free
newer computer. At that time, the site had over 1,200 hits and over 200
email monthly readers.
     It was added to FaceBook and is now linked from Christian
Fellowship Devotionals, God's Minute Devotions, The Christian Counter,
21st Century Christianity and Bible Sprout.
