BRAD CAPSHAW'S BIOGRAPHY
Ordained Minister of The Fishermen Ministry Located in South Carolina
I was born April17, 1961 to Bill & Naomi Capshaw, in Edmund, Oklahoma. They were from Chattanooga, Oklahoma. It’s a farming town of about 300 people, where my dad’s dad had a grocery store. My mom’s dad died from injuries sustained in WWI, & her mom died a bit early from raising 9 kids alone, so I never knew them. Mom & Dad loved me, which is no small thing. They had 3 boys, about 4 years apart (so they could help pay for our college), & I was in the middle. Which stunk.
Dad was an Air Force as an officer & I liked it. We moved about every 3 years, & attended Protestant chapel services Sunday mornings. Not on Wednesday. Do right, live right, some Jesus, OK.
So, I loved Christ. Then, we moved a few times & I walked away. I dropped out of college & joined the Navy. I married a free spending girl, then lost my left arm in a car wreck. She took my money & kids, & I died inside. My oldest son served with distinction in Afghanistan & Iraq. My daughter has 3 boys. It was unbearable to lose them, & to be alone. But, they are well, as am I, now.
That’s good, but i was simply destroyed, initially. In my despair, The Lord found me. I remarried, & we had 2 boys, in defiance of medical science. I finished my Bachelor’s, moved up the ladder at work, & now I’m a supervisor. I’m also happily married. I always wanted to be in love. Ahhhh. She loves Jesus enough to truly love me. The Lord is very kind. We home school, live near friends, & have a content life. Outside of Christianity, my life makes no sense, & that’s comforting.
