Steve Baker has a life-long service for Jesus Christ in the United States, Canada, Africa, Mexico, and, most recently, Russia.
After graduating with a B.A. from the University of Iowa, he joined a mission agency where he met his wife, Kathy. Steve assisted in Bible translation projects, teaching literacy, technical writing, and anything else English majors might do in obedience to the Great Commission.
In the summer of 2006, Steve endured a horrific bicycle vs truck crash. (Steve was the bicyclist.) He endured years of pain with additional mental and emotional traumas. During his career as a content-management technical writer, in 2015 he began a stretch of two years with major, clinical depression.
During his darkest times, with perpetual anxiety attacks, he kept studying God’s Word, church history, and selected books on neurology. As a result, he wrote the Daily Focus meditations and developed the meditation method that pulled him out of darkness.
