A new week brings with it a new guest blogger. We’re very happy to have as a guest someone whose name most regular T & S readers will recognize: bloggernacker and frequent comment participator Daniel H. Bartholomew, aka Danithew.
Our new guest grew up in White Plains, NY and attended church at Westchester Ward (in Scarsdale) with esteemed guest-blogger Bryce Inouye for approximately fourteen years. He earned a BA in English from BYU with a minor in Hebrew, where he also studied Arabic and lived in the Arabic house for a year. Since then, he has lived abroad and studied Hebrew and Arabic at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem for three years. (He writes: “For six of those months I lived in a Palestinian village called Zaim and for two of those years I hometaught the only Mormon family in Gaza.”) Danithew is planning to finish his master’s degree in Middle
East Studies (emphasis in political science) at the University of Utah this academic year. He’s also holding down a full-time job to support his wife through medical school, where she is now a fourth-year student. Finally, we would be remiss not to note that he is an expert in Chupacabra lore, and that he served his mission in Guatemala.
Further biographical information can be found at his own blog, at:
Welcome aboard, Danithew!
