About Greg

by greg stone

My name is Greg Stone, author of The Yellow Cap, and the upcoming book, Pieces of the Puzzle. I am also the associate regional director for Young Life in southern Missouri. My wife, Jodi, and I have been married for over 28 years, and we have two young adult sons, Casey and Drew. I am a native of the Ozarks, and live now on the land I grew up on about 10 miles from Branson, Missouri.

Young Life impacted my life greatly when I was a teenager. In the summer of 1981 I backpacked with others in Wilderness Ranch, Colorado, a Young Life camp. During that time God touched my heart deeply of His everlasting love for me. Since that time I have been a volunteer leader and staff person with Young Life off and on for over 20 years with students from Branson, Hollister, Joplin, Reeds Spring and Galena, Missouri. 

Writing has always been a passion of mine. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Journalism from Central Missouri State University, and a Master's in Ministry from John Brown University. I hope that my books and blogposts will be used to encourage, challenge and strengthen the hearts and minds of those who read my works
