Stephen F. Huss, Ph.D.

I am                

        A seeker

                             A learner

                                                A teacher

 Welcome to my website.

The five books and other writings found here are the direct result of all of the above. Each effort required me to seek knowledge and truth. Researching and writing each one allowed me the opportunity to learn something that helped me improve my own life—sometimes very profoundly. And, through writing, I have attempted to share something important with others that might enrich their respective lives through thought and observation. Like all life-time learners, my interests and personal life situations determined the topics presented here. Like all teachers, I want to share.

For those who wonder about the integrity of the work, I do have some more formal credentials.
