My name is Nathanael Manthey. I live in Pennsylvania with my amazing wife, Michelle. Marrying her officially made me the luckiest man in the world. We have a one year old son named Philip, who we named after my dad.
I have a very sophisticated sense of humor. [giggle, giggle]
Writing, for me, is an outlet. Whether prose or poetry,I find release in putting words, as limited as they may be in expressing my emotion, onto paper (or in this case, in type).
“Why ‘borrowed breath’ as a website name?” you ask.
I’m glad you did.
My life is not my own. I do not live it for myself. I have been redeemed.
In March of 1998, I had a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ. I realized for the first time He was more than a historical figure. I saw my need of a Savior. And I believed His claims and promises. I surrendered my life to Him, owning Him as my Lord and my Savior and my best friend. So since then, I have been (and still am) learning that this life, my breath, my heartbeat, my hands and feet, my talents, my everything is on loan. And because of that, each day is borrowed, and I am the servant of all.
Hence, borrowed breath.Any-hoo, I love life. I love my wife. And I love Jesus.
