Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind.” At the beginning of creation, Adam and Eve were holy, undefiled by sin, and it was that “kind,” that consecrated state of mind, that God commanded be reproduced.
Jerry Blout’s series of devotional messages give guidance to face every practical bump on the road of our journey here on Earth. I found that in some of these lessons, Jerry’s personal experiences modeled many of my own, and the counsel coming from the Bible verses he cites made me feel I was hearing directly from Jesus. I highly recommend these messages of life lessons to those who desire spiritual growth.
I have been reading your daily devotional messages and have been blessed. I know that Adrian would be honored that you took his thoughts and wrote devotionals from them. May God bless many lives through this book of devotional thoughts.

About the Author
Jerry Blout was born at home in London Mills, Illinois; a river town of less than 150 people. Only Jerry and mother Charlotte were present for his birth that October 4, 1942. His father Bartley had gone to fetch the doctor and was yet to return when his mom delivered. Jerry graduated from Lewistown High School in 1960. While attending one year of college at Canton Illinois Community College, he met Carolyn Bishop, the girl he would marry one year later.
His 45-year career was chosen for him by the supermarket industry. During high school and two-years following graduation he worked at his hometown supermarket as a meat cutter. In 1963 he joined Kroger as an apprentice meat cutter—a job change that would see several moves in location and in responsibility. In 2003 Jerry retired from Kroger Indianapolis to join a friend in the brokerage business. Dick Taylor of Central Sales and Marketing said, “I’ll be the best boss you ever had.” Jerry said that he and his son Chad were.
He and Carolyn have two children. Gregg, born October 12, 1962, lives in Parker, Colorado. Sheryl (Sherry) Borzych, born June 2, 1965, lives in San Antonio. They have four grandchildren: Brad, Brandi, Megan and Mia. Jerry & Carolyn retired in November of 2006, moving to San Antonio, Texas in 2007 where they currently reside.
Footnote: Jerry’s 45-year year career included 12 years with Gooding’s supermarkets of Orlando, Florida.
