My name is Jeremiah Wayne Heaton. I'm the son of John and Eileen Heaton of Atlanta, GA. I was born and raised in and around Atlanta for most of my life. In high school, I played sports and eventually won a scholarship to college for sports. Thanks to a knee injury in my Junior year, that ended abruptly.
I found myself angry for a while and then, I decided to go to seminary. I'd always loved working with the Youth at our church so I wanted to be a Youth Pastor and that's what I did at First Christian Church in Atlanta, where my daddy was the Music Minister and my Mom played the piano and organ.
A couple of years after I started, I met the most beautiful girl there. She came to church one Sunday with her parents who had been coming there for a while and she was visiting. Her name was Karen and the rest was history. She moved to Atlanta and started helping with everything she could at the church. We finally got married and had two beautiful children, Nicholas and Lindsay.
Almost a year ago, we were coming back from a revival in North Georgia and we came around a bend in the road and there was a car in our lane. There was no time to react except to grab the steering wheel and hold on as I tried to swirve and miss the car. He hit us head on and I lost my whole family.
I was in the hospital for weeks and when I was able to finally get out, I learned that the driver had been drunk and he was killed too. I was numb for weeks. I ranted and raved to God as to why He didn't take me instead. There have been no answers as yet and I wonder if I'll ever get them.
I have a younger brother Weston who is a total Hellion. He settled down some when Mom and Dad died back in 2000. Mom went first and then about 6 months later Dad went. I think he just missed her.
A friend told me they had heard about this place in the Caribbean where you could go and be away from everything. He said it was mostly for celebrities but he bet they'd welcome a Pastor here so, here I am.
Maybe if I am busy helping other people, it will in turn help me. I hope so. The place is beautiful from what I can see so far. Look forward to meeting everyone.
