About Jerome Davis:  Jerome was born on August 10, 1972 in Colorado Springs, CO where his father was stationed in the military. Six months after his birth, he and his family moved back to Archdale, NC to the Davis Family Ranch where he grew up and still lives today.

jerome

Jerome’s shining moment was in 1995 when he became the 1995 PRCA World Bull Riding Champion. He continued to rip through PRCA and PBR. He was ranked in the top five each year in the PRCA since 1993 and was a National Finals qualifier since ’94 in the PBR (more Career Stats).

Tragedy struck on March 14, 1998, when Jerome was thrown from a bull breaking his neck. The injury left him with paralysis from the chest down. Although Jerome is paralyzed, nothing can keep him down. He is a true inspiration of how you should live your life and keep moving forward with a positive outlook. He inspired his wife Tiffany, as they were married October 17, 1998. He also inspired the PBR- as he was awarded the “Ring of Honor” during the 1998 PBR Finals.  For more info visit http://www.jeromedavis.com/meet_jerome.asp

Sponsor in the upcoming movie “The Longest Ride”(Nicholas Sparks Movie The Longest Ride The film is based on the novel The Longest Ride by Nicholas Sparks) to be released April 2015 (USA). The Davises are members of American Bucking Bull, Inc., and as such participate nationally in stock breeding.

Heaven is for Real the Movie

Image

Looking for a great movie to watch over the Easter Holy Days? Then you may want to see Heaven is for Real the Movie. Heaven Is for Real is the true story of a four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who experienced heaven during emergency surgery. He talks about looking down to see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn’t know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.

In heaven, Colton met his miscarried sister whom no one ever had told him about and his great-grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born. He shared impossible-to-know details about each. Colton went on to describe the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how “really big” God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit “shoots down power” from heaven to help us.

Told by the Colton’s father often in Colton’s own words, the disarmingly simple message is that heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and to be ready … there is a coming last battle. ~Ray Publishing Reviewsynopsis

The Burpos are the perfect picture of a small-town Americana family: mom and dad, daughter and son. Young Colton and his dad are inseparable until an illness lands Colton in the hospital. Fearing they will lose their son, the parents cry out to God to spare him.

While Colton’s amazing recovery should lead his family back to normalcy, they quickly discover nothing will ever be the same again. With childlike innocence, Colton begins talking about having visited Heaven and his incredible experiences there … including meeting family members he never knew about.

Based on the beloved book, HEAVEN IS FOR REAL tells one family’s story about Heaven and the impact it has on their community … and the world.

ABOUT THE BURPOS

Todd Burpo is the pastor of Crossroads Wesleyan Church in Imperial, Nebraska (Population: 2,122), where his sermons are broadcast every Sunday via the local radio station. In emergencies, Todd can be found working shoulder-to-shoulder with the Imperial Volunteer Fire Department as a firefighter. He is also the chaplain for the Nebraska State Volunteer Firefighter’s Association. Todd graduated from Oklahoma Wesleyan University in 1991 summa cum laude with a BA in Theology. He was ordained in 1994.

Todd and his wife Sonja,who is a children’s minister, busy pastor’s wife, mom, and office manager at a local realtor, are the parents of Colton, now an active teenager; Cassie, his older sister; and Colby, his younger brother.
