Bio of Richard P. Ware

— Updated May 2019

In February of 1973, I married a young lady from Marceline, Missouri. And, from that marriage four children were born: Shane, Brandie, Robert, and Kevin. All are grown now with their own families, and actually, in spite of their dad, all have grown into really cool people. After leaving home in 1972, I turned away from God and walked the more traveled roads for about 27 years. Actually, I ran down the hammer lanes of life as fast as I could run. I thought, as many men do, that I was the "big dog in the puppy pen", and I preceded full steam ahead just having a lot of fun. In reality, I had so much fun, it led to bankruptcy in the mid 1980's and divorce at the end of that same decade. As a note, that's where the fast lane of life takes most men!!

In 1999, I re-dedicated my life to Jesus and shifted lanes. Currently, I am retired from my job as an Over-The-Road truck driver. I now work full time for my Lord and Savior...King of kings, Lord of lords, Jesus Christ. He has called me to be an evangelist, sharing the gospel through word and song with whoever will listen. In college, I discovered the love of writing and have been blessed with the ability to write songs...which is amazing because I neither play a musical instrument nor read music. The truth is that I am just the "pen" that God uses to write down the lyrics. Now, as I drive down these highways and byways, in the Jesus RV or on the Harley, God gives me a melody to the words. I then record my vocal to the words and send my rough vocal recording off to Nashville where professional musicians put everything into the final song. Be sure to visit our music page, where you can hear, and even download, some of those songs.

‐ Blessings, Rich Ware



Bio of Joanie M. Ware

— Updated May 2019

I met Richard the end of August 2013 on Match.com! When I was searching for my sweetheart, I used keywords like "Music", "Christian", and "Harley"! So, as you can see, I got exactly what I was searching for!

By the end of 2014, we were man and wife. We believe it was a match made in heaven. We have a lot in common. I've written a few songs myself, as well as a LOT of poems! We love singing for our Lord! We love working for "Jesus Cross My Heart Ministries" together. We love sharing the Good News of God's unconditional love for all mankind through the Gift of His Son. Be sure to visit the history page for Jesus Cross My Heart Ministries to find out more about how the ministry got started and what it's doing now.
