About Hill Country Thoughts

Hill Country Thoughts: A Coffee Cup Ministry

“Write from the Heart and Walk One Day At A Time with the Lord!!” The Mayor ๐Ÿ™‚

P.S. The Mayor, is a nickname that my friends gave me yrs ago

One heart, laid bare, letting others know they are not alone if they know Jesus. It beats inside Paul Dawn Jr., a prolific writer who created Hill Country Thoughts to encourage people to walk more closely with the Lord.

After a battle with cancer, two major surgeries, a divorce, after 29 years, not by choice, the Lord has taken what seemed like defeat and out of the ashes has brought forth life and focused him on what was important, the Lord Jesus Christ!

Paul pens his innermost thoughts about his journey as a Christian and all that the Lord is teaching him. His honest and poignant writings tell of his personal struggles, hard-won victories and the joys of learning to trust and follow Jesus Christ.

Paul, now lives in Smyrna, Georgia.

Moved to Georgia, after nearly 30 years of living in Junction, Texas.

Hopefully Hill Country thoughts is a place where people can come and be encouraged online by hearing about the faithfulness of the Lord.

My hope is to exhort others, lift them up, to let them know that we are never without hope and the Lord is with us in all that we go through in life.

Paul, a freelance writer and researcher, started Hill Country Thoughts in April 2004. The Pinecrest Bible Training Center, now know as Bethany Bible Training Center, graduateโ€™s website has attracted more than 60,000 visitors. Many have come from other countries,Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Malaysia, to name a few.

I see the Lord intertwining His people together.We have been given a great opportunity to use the Internet for the Lord.

We need to share and let people to know there is hope in a world that seems to have very little.

In addition to his web page, Paul also writes for the website Crossmap.com, as well as several other online e-zines, writes devotionals, was co-moderator of Christian Writers Group (CWG) for ten years and now serves on the advisory board, member of the Christian Authors Guild, in Woodstock, Georgia.

Paul has a coffee cup ministry. A lot of his writing is done at various coffee shops, but mainly at The Rev ย ๐Ÿ™‚

A market place ministry that allows Him to meet people of all ages, to have an ear to listen, exhort and hopefully encourage others.

Paul attends Cumberland Community Church, Smyrna, Georgia

    It was great to meet you tonight!! We both really enjoyed talking to you and I can personally vouch for how encouraging it is to meet another strong Christian with a PERSONAL relationship with God. Sometimes you look around and wonder if you aren’t the only one with a heart for the things of God (Colossians 3) and evenings like this are encouraging to show me just how wrong that is. We may be the few on the narrow road… but not alone :).

    Carry on,

    Hey Paul,

    This is Matt, whom you talked to last week @ Starbucks, and is a part of Pastor Richard’s ministry. Just thought I’d drop you a line here on your site, and let you know that my prayers are behind your ministry and your own personal journey to know the Lord.

    God bless
    Ephesians 1:16-23

    Hey Paul,

    Was just thinking about you today and thought I’d drop you a line just to say hello! I knew you’d lived in Kennesaw–then Dallas–and now Smyrna? You sure do get around, my friend! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I see your web site and ministry are yet up and running–as are you, in your own way! Good to see it.

    How’s your puppy? ๐Ÿ™‚

    Take good care and God bless!
