R. Scott Osborne is passionate about his faith, about his family, about his church, about the Jewish roots of Christianity, and about investing in the lives of others. He wants everyone to know that “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.” (John 3:16, NRSVCE).
Scott lives in Columbus, Ohio with the love of his life, Daryse, to whom he has been married over 45 years. They both grew up in Christian homes and have served Christ together since their wedding. They are blessed with two daughters, two sons-in-law and eight grandchildren. Chloe lives in Florida with her husband and three sons, Hannah lives in Ohio with her husband and five children.
Through the years, Scott served in various lay leadership roles in his local church, during which time he regularly taught the Bible, led small groups, and was active in worship ministry. He also volunteers at crisis pregnancy centers where he consults with male clients and leads post-abortion recovery groups for men. Scott has two degrees in engineering and spent most of his career in the medical products industry. His career “fun fact” is that he is a co-inventor on eight U.S. patents. He now works in a senior leadership position at a university.

What People Are Saying
“Just wanted to let you know by example how far reaching an impact the book God gave you has had in people’s lives. I send a blessing, usually 2 or 3 daily, and the response in several cases was such that it came at a time when the “waters were rising”, to coin a phrase. As I say, thanks to your obedience to Him in setting His words to paper. I feel I’m embarking on a small blessing ministry, if there is such a thing. I’m in awe of how God can move.”
“I have really enjoyed your book, and have been able to pass some of the blessings on to my friends. I gave one of the books to a friend last evening for her last night of Hanukah gift. This is what she had to say. <i>”I began reading the book of blessings and was able to share some with the girls. After this beautiful time of encouragement and verbal affirmation through God’s word, I went into my son’s room and began speaking them over him as he slept. I just showed my husband the book and He took it upstairs to read before going to sleep. “Thank you” does not say enough for this meaningful gift that will bring more light into our home. This is an area that I’ve been praying about recently, since critical words fly so easily. I believe that in part, this book is an answer to that prayer.”</i> Thank you for sharing the overflow of what God has revealed to you about the importance of spoken blessings. We and many others will be blessed by your faithfulness.”
