    • Kevin

      It’s all mine and all original. Well, it’s actually God’s, but we both knew that already. I’d love for you to use it. I would appreciate some links or credit, but I’m not demanding it. Just no money makin’ without an email first.

      • John

        Hey Kevin can you email me – I’m actually writing something similar and want some help from somebody like you.

  • Sarah Falck

    I love it – its absolutely inspiring. And, your whole website is wonderful.

    • Kevin

      Thank you Sarah!!

      • Sarah Falck

        I just have one question for you. Do you know of any Bible translations that are similar to yours? I have looked many places, but unfortunetly cannot seem to find any. A Bible like that would be amazing.

  • Havnen’t wandered off, Kevin. Just buried in activities to help Matt launch his Deep Rivers Famiily Ranch. I’m a wee sad that there doesn’t seem to be a lot of response to this wonderful major work. Am printing, keeping, sending it on. Soon, we’ll contact you with some personal thoughts on making DRFR a resource for your ministry.


    Please run 2 Corinthians 2: 1-5 thur the (SCV). THIS WORK IS AWESOME.

    • Kevin

      Here you go:

      So I figured I wouldn’t let my next visit to y’alls place be so awful. If I have to get on to y’all, who’s gonna cheer me up if you don’t? I’d like for things to go smooth for all of us. I didn’t want my next visit to be uncomfortable. When I had to write to you and get on to ya, it grieved my heart somethin’ fierce. My purpose wasn’t to make you feel like crap, I only wanted to show you that I cared that much. I dang sure don’t like to point out the cancer-eyed cow in the herd, but the fella that was causin’ the problems caused y’all more hurt than he did me.

      • STEVE MART

        Thanks Kevin. Keep up the great work that He has started in you. God bless

  • Susan Karschnia

    Kevin with Valentines coming up, do you have 1 Cor 13 (Love Chapter)in the Cowboy Bible? Figured there was no more important verse then this one, for me to understand and to put in practice, since our God is the GOD of LOVE. Thank you SO MUCH! God’s blessing to you, and your loved ones.
    P.S. These words will be shared on the island of Kwajalein (Marshall Islands). Yes, there are a few cowgirls at heart here…HA! Just missing the horses and cows, but we sure could wrangle up some mosquitoes with a nasty bite.

  • Would love to use these scriptures on posters for my page. Will definitely put your link on.

  • Joe

    Thanks for this. Ministering to the Cowboy culture is a true blessing!

  • I was suggested this web site by my cousin. I am now not certain whether or not this publish is written through
    him as no one else know such precise approximately my problem.
