I am Larry Who.

If you look at the author’s name on the cover of The Day LA Died or Jonah or one of the other e-Books, you will see the name Nevenhoven. This is my surname, but usually, no one can pronounce it. So, what do they do? They wrinkle their nose and say, “Larry who?”

I am a Christian, a husband (wife’s name – Carol), father, grandfather, writer, businessman, former California licensed real estate agent, dreamer, and more. If I had to list all the companies and positions I have worked at over the last thirty-four years on a single sheet of paper, the paper would be blacked in. No white at all. Many jobs. Many cities. Many states.

It is hard to believe, but I am seventy-four years old. 74-years old! President Bush, President Clinton, Sally Fields, Diane Keaton, Dolly Parton, Liza Minelli, Reggie Jackson, Priscilla Presley, Cher, Duane Allman, Donald Trump, Jimmy Buffet, Suzanne Somers, and Sylvester Stallone are among those born in 1946, the first year for the Boomer Generation.

And oh yes, I live in Gilbert, Arizona.

  2. Very interesting information

  3. I’m curious to know why the things you write seem so divisive, yet, you announce yourself as a Christian.

  4. I just realized that what I wrote may have sounded disrespectful. It was not intended, and if it came off sounding like that…I ask you to forgive me.

    Thanks for stopping by.

    Actually, the same words were said about Jesus. We, somehow, overlook that point when we talk about His earthly ministry.

    It did not sound disrespectful to me, but if it will make you feel better – you are forgiven.

    Excellent blog. I’m so blessed by what you write and the way you communicate. Keep ’em coming! God bless! Lenae

    Thanks. God bless you.

  9. How can I not love a guy in a Giants cap? (Both the Giants and me arrived in 1958, so I’m a little partial.) I’m not commenting on baseball, although we can do that someday. Instead I’m sending thanks for sharing your witness. Like you, I understand first hand how God goes to work when you place all your troubles in his lap and just let go. We’re not in control, although we like to think we are. I hope more people like you are willing to display vulnerability so that others can get a glimpse of God at work in our lives.

    Nice job, Larry.

    Pastor, I call you that for in all these years the words (seeds) you prayed over me, preached at me and politely fussed at me (well sometimes not so politely) and rightfully so, have harvested. I’ve been reading. I am emailing you to let you know that June 24th I am walking the Commencement of my College with a GPA of 3.99 and the honors of Phi Beta Lambda. In September I will start my Masters and am getting a teaching certificate in post secondary education. I have a double major. Communication and Applied Science and my minor is in Fine Arts. I have finally learned that it is all about having that relationship with God, not about the religion. You were right, I was my own worst enemy. Please tell C I said hello! I love you guys, and once again thank you for your honesty, your dedication, and your faithfulness to our Lord…and not giving up when it all seemed useless. You showed me something more thousands of miles away than others did right here. Mike and I just celebrated 23 years and the birth of our 9th grandchild! May God blessed you, your always a blessing.

  16. Terri Shaw,

    What a delightful surprise! You have made my day.

    There is not a doubt in my mind that whatever you have done for the Lord so far in your life will be but a drop in the ocean compared to what you will do in the near future. Expect bigger battles followed by bigger victories followed by even bigger battles followed by even bigger victories and so on and so on.

    You’re ready!

  17. very interesting blog, you have given me some things to think about and I look forward to reading more.

    God bless.

  18. mcoville,

    God bless you.

  19. I’ve had time down from school and I am trying to catch up on my online and offline reading. I have perused your site and found it quite enjoyable. Thank you for linking me I believe we are a good match in terms of blogs. Blessings, Andy

  20. Great blog !!

    Blessings !!

  21. rebecaurora,

    Thanks. What a great name you have.

  22. Nice to meet you, Larry Who:) Thanks for visiting my blog. I am enjoying yours!

  23. Judy,

    Thanks. I appreciate your visit.

  24. Hi Larry,
    I’ve nominated you for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award. My latest post includes details of the award. Thanks for your inspiring work!

  25. Judy,

    Thanks. I appreciate it.

  26. Caddo Veil

    Hi Larry!! I love all the pictures–you and “Honey Who” are especially adorable!! God bless y’all–love, sis Caddo (if I’m in spam, kindly take me out)

  27. Caddo Veil,

    You were lost and now you’re found. Thanks for the kind words.

  28. Caddo Veil

    So, is it Dutch, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish? “Nevenhoven”. Inquiring minds want to know….(and nosy sisters).

  29. Caddo,

    Nevenhoven is Dutch and lost a couple of vowels when it was Americanized. Thank God for that. I’m a farm boy from Northern Illinois where every farmer had a German or Dutch name and drank lots of black coffee.

  30. I am reading your Prophecy One O One. Fascinating.

  31. Chrystal,

    Thanks. I think it will help. The whole blog site was written to be a book, which will soon be published as an eBook.

  32. You are young Larry – 66 IS THE NEW 46 🙂 ……Enjoy reading your posts….Blessings Darrell

  33. darrell,

    Thanks. When writing, I feel 46. It’s when I stand up that I realize my age is on the other side of the hill.

  34. Enjoy reading your post, and when I visit my family in Murrieta and Wildomar this summer, I just may run into you!

  35. Yvette,

    It’s a small world, right? Better yet, if you have time, when you are in the area, let’s make a point of meeting each other. I drink coffee or whatever and will drive to where you’re at. Who knows? Maybe God will bless our time together.

    Last year, I met a blogging friend from London, England, when she came to America with her family. It turned our to be a glorious time for us.

    Keep me in mind. Thanks.

  36. Diane

    I read your Jonah book. I liked it very much.

  37. Diane,

    Thanks. I appreciate your feedback.

  38. Thanks for visiting Larry – I appreciate your appreciation. The Lord bless you and keep you my brother and fellow blogger.

  39. Richard.

    Thanks. Go with God.

  40. Sounds like you had a lot of different jobs =) and I guess you lived out your dream! Great!

  41. colouryourdream,

    Thanks. So far so good.

  42. Just a quick note for the “drugstore cowboy”–I’m at Grace Pieces now. There may be a big lallapalooza unveiling in May; depends on how fast the testimony comes together: “struggle and victory = souvenirs”. Just in case you were wondering…..no obligation a’ tall, Bubba. God bless you (Big).

  43. jaels,

    Thanks. I just pull on my boots and skedaddle over there.

  44. Maybe, being a guy, you’d rather not be associated with the word “lovely,” but as a woman with a heart for people in 3rd world countries, I think what you do here is exactly that – lovely. Therefore, there is an award for you (One Lovely Blog) at http://lessonsbyheart.wordpress.com/2013/06/09/whatever-is-lovely-award/ 🙂


  45. lessonsbyheart,

    Thanks. I appreciate your kind words and the nomination for the award. The only reason I haven’t accepted any awards so far is the time involved for following up on the awards. So, thanks for your kindness in thinking of me.

  46. I couldn’t agree with you more. I usually save them as a draft, and work at them a bit here and a bit there. Don’t feel obligated to do anything with them, just wanted to let you know that you’re highly regarded. (Besides, it causes some of those who follow my blog to check out yours…even if you do nothing with the award.)

    By the way, this one is “different.” It’s for my Blogtopia family…that would include you, so here’s another one you can smile about. If you don’t post it, you won’t hurt my feelings one bit. Couldn’t leave you off the list though!
    (I have 3 more to process…they came between the last one and this one – and you’re not on those – woohoo!)

  47. Hi Larry! I have nominated you for a WordPress Family blog award! Please check it out 🙂 http://kingintraining.wordpress.com/2013/06/18/i-am-part-of-the-wordpress-family-award/

  48. kingintraining,

    Thanks. I am so honored, but due to time constraints I have never accepted an award. Thanks for thinking of me. God bless you.

  49. Very creative writer. With wisdom. Great!!!
