The Realm of the Verbal Processor

Jarvis's Ramblings

About Jarvis

Me and My BrideI am Jarvis Davis…Julie’s husband, Dad to my three kids (two daughters and a son), an IT consultant specializing in Systems Management, a former missionary with Campus Crusade for Christ, and someone who is deeply loved by Jesus Christ in spite of my failings and weaknesses.

This blog came about as a result of the encouragement of a good friend named Philip Turner. Philip and I worked together for nine years, and he was my sounding board for a long time. There were many times that I would come in, sit down at his desk, and he would very patiently listen as I processed what was going through my head. One day when I came in and sat down, he turned around without missing a beat and asked, “Have you ever considered blogging?”

Within the week, I was sitting at a screen trying to figure out what to call my blog…and The Realm of the Verbal Processor just seemed abundantly appropriate. So…for anyone coming across this ongoing missive…you can thank (or blame) Philip!

What should you expect to find here? A good bit you could call my ramblings…about anything that strikes me. Look at the tag cloud to get a general idea. A good bit is simply personal observations on life. I also do a lot of posting about various technology related things…typically something that I am working on or playing with and the things I learned as a result. Really…it ends up being a good cross section of what I have called “the totality of me”.

Some of it is related to my former ministry with Campus Crusade for Christ. My wife and I worked for Campus Crusade for 16 and 15 years respectively.

Anyway…thanks for checking in. Feel free to browse around or leave a comment. I’d love to hear from you.


  1. Jarvis, though I miss processing with you in person, it’s good to see you enjoying “thinking out loud” online – not to mention fun catching up on your life. You’re doing a great job.

    Too, don’t forget, I also said you would be a great story-teller (think 4th grade kids sitting at your feet in the library) as well.

  2. Jarvis,
    Many thanks for taking the time to think on blog…
    Your daughters memory is really an amazing tribute the power of the human mind. Humans fall prey to weakness of our Spirit as we grow old and expect less of ourselves. Best of luck catching up with your 4yr old’s memorization. IT’S NEVER TOO LATE.
    Seeking at any age is the key. God Bless You.

  5. Hey man I glad to see you back posting. I have looked on the verbal processor a number of times to see what was up and no new stuff since Aug 4. I thought you’d got cuaght in a gravity abcess and fell off the earth. Good to read about impending arrival and I will pray for good timely landing. Drop a line on the archaic email and I will catch you up on what I know here in private.

  7. Figured I would say hi. I found your blog looking for the popular “how do I run a command prompt as system on current Windows?” topic, and found myself laughing at some of your family experiences (been there too) and smiling at your mixing religion with technology experiences. Nicely done.
