Meet David

DAVID TEEMS LIVES IN FRANKLIN, TENNESSEE with his wife, Benita. They have two sons—Shad and Adam (Adam and his wife, Katie, have three children—Julian, Evie, and Audrey Gray).

A self-confessed logophile, David will tell you his higher passions are literary (as are some of his lower ones). He earned his undergraduate degree (BA Psychology) at Georgia State University and attended graduate school (educational psychology) at GSU until music proved too strong of a temptation. He abandoned the academics to pursue music.

His father was a worship leader in the church he grew up in, but it was his paternal grandmother who taught him the joy of words, the constructions, the magic they can make. She was the first to put a guitar in his hands at the age of seven.

Transitioning from music to books just a few years ago, To Love Is Christ, a devotional, was released in 2005 by Thomas Nelson Publishers. And Thereby Hangs A Tale: What I Really Know About the Devoted Life I Learned From My Dogs released from Harvest House Publishers (June 2010) and went into a second edition within a few months. Majestie:The King Behind the King James Bible released in October 2010 from Thomas Nelson. Discovering Your Spiritual Center released in October, 2011 from Leafwood Publishers (Abilene Christian University Press). Tyndale: The Man Who Gave God An English Voice, a biography of the bible translator and martyr William Tyndale released in January 2012.

Okay, yeah, he has been busy. Four books (350,000 words) in two years. With much more to come.

David has recorded eight albums now, including three recordings featuring voiceover/music: Hope, More Hope, and his latest, Speak To Me: For A Faith That Comes By Hearing, featuring the ambient music of Phil Keaggy and Nashville studio guitarist, Tom Hemby.
