  1. And, Dr. Shade was my second “boss” (my dad was my first) just out of college.and was one of my Favorites.. He reminded me one day that when I became a new person In Christ, that Jesus’ death on the cross paid for my past, present And Future sins, and that I could freely serve Him with no condemnation.. Very soon after, a lightbulb went off in my brain, in my heart and I had an insatiable desire for God’s Wird that I have to this day, now FORTY YEARS later <3 Thank you, Dr. Shade And "Ms." RubyShade <3
