Chris was born in 1992 to Rod and Kathy Hutton in Jacksonville Florida, which they moved from in less than a year. He was born a military brat, and has moved to places like Hawaii, Virginia, Italy, and now resides in the corn-filled city of Omaha, Nebraska. He is also an Evangelical Born-again Christian, who was saved by the Grace of Jesus Christ. He is 17 years old, and has been homeschooled since the 6thgrade. He has 4 siblings and two loving parents
Christ has been reading ever since he learned how. In elementary school, he was always caught reading when he shouldn’t have been. It was his big interest. He was also an inactive child, with few interests outside TV, books and video games. In 2004, Chris was taken out of Private School to be homeschooled by his parents. He moved to Virginia that same year, and had a complete change of life. He soon found a taste for more books, thanks to his parents, and to God. But 2008 changed everything. He moved to Naples, Italy, home of the Pizza. His mom got pregnant, and he had to become her “big helper”. He had few friends there outside of his family. But that allowed him to mature within the home. He started cooking all the meals, exercising, developing his body and his mind. In 2010, his dad got the next assignment, sending the family of 7 to Omaha, Nebraska. And now, Chris is involved in kid’s church, as well as graduating from high school, working 4 days of the week, and maintaining this podcast, as he attempts to get the world to read more Great Books.
Chris’ current interests include reading, writing, working out, cooking, conversation, helping around the house, podcasting, and keeping up with school.
