About the Author


Paul Hornback has met the challenges of a United States Marine Corps Helicopter Pilot, government engineer and operation research analyst, lay speaker, and church leader but the greatest challenge was his diagnosis of Early Onset Alzheimer’s disease at the age of 55 in 2009.  With courage, Paul has turned a seemingly disastrous event into a faith-building milestone while battling Alzheimer’s for seven years.

Paul has also used his experiences throughout his long battle with Alzheimer’s to write a devotional book entitled God Still Remembers Me. This devotional was written for people in the early to mid stages of Alzheimer’s disease. It is a 52 week set of daily devotions organized under weekly topics of interest to Alzheimer’s patients. Since an Alzheimer’s diagnosis doesn’t necessarily come on the 1st of January, the devotional is designed to be started at any point in the year.

Paul and his wife live in Hodgenville Kentucky with their three long haired Chihuahuas, one feisty cat, twelve laying hens, and a guinea. They also have three grown and independent children who have left the comfortable nest of the Hornback Homestead.

    Hi Paul,
    I came across your book on line just over a week ago. It is so good, so encouraging, so faith building! I am so happy to have found it. I work in memory care in activities in a secular facility and one of my jobs is to lead devotions. I want our Lord to be able to reach these people’s heart so I look for good messages. Your book and your website are a treasure to me and my friends at work.
    Thank you so much and may God bless you.
    Your sister in Christ,

      Chris, thank you so much for your kind words. I am so glad you are able to use my devotions to help the people in the memory care unit where you work. It is why I write! Please keep up the great work you are doing and share anything that I write. God bless, Paul
