James W. Gunter // Author, Curator



James is the Youth and Associate Pastor of Antioch East Baptist Church. At the moment, he’s also the lone sheriff on our site. TBR’s broth cooks in the up-to-no-good musings of James and his dogs, with hints of stout coffee and Virginia flake.

Joanna L. Gunter // Editor



Joanna joined the team December 19, 2019 – so don’t blame her for the poor quality of prior articles. James and Joanna were married November, 2018 and enjoy writing together. Her addition makes TBR a familial effort.
