Note: Somehow my entry was either not recieved, or just didn’t win. I never heard any results, except an automatic win at the lodge level. Either way, I hope you are blessed and that this possibly unheard audio will inspire you to defeat apathy in our nation today.

Tim Sweetman


Tim Sweetman is a young writer, blogger, and student who lives near our nation’s capital, Washington D.C. He has been much more widely known by his “code-name,” Agent Tim. This name also served as the name of his popular blog, which received over 750,000 visits between 2005 to 2007. In 2005, he quickly rose to become a leading teenage spokesperson and cultural critic within the booming blogosphere, taking on issues such as MySpace, alcohol, homeschooling, pride, racism, tolerance, and other topics relating to our culture today. His blog has come to the attention of people such as Albert Mohler, C.J. Mahaney, Alex and Brett Harris, and La Shawn Barber. Tim’s written work has appeared in Lifeway’s Living With Teenagers (February 2012), Lookout Magazine, FUSION Magazine, The Brink Online, The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, Virtue Magazine, Regenerate Our Culture Online Magazine, and on many other blogs and websites across the internet like Marry Well and the Lies Young Women Believe Blog. He has also been featured in WORLD Magazine, The Towers Magazine, and Maryland Newsline. He is scheduled to have an article appear in Veritas Magazine this December. Most recently, his work can be found on Focus on the Family’s Boundless Webzine. His personal interests include writing (surprise!) and sports, both watching and playing. He is a die-hard Washington Redskins fan.

  1. Neat–my friend Caleb entered and his was really good. :-) I’ll go listen to yours now!

  2. Great job!! Thanks for posting the file.

  3. It’s funny that you did this. I was a four-time participant, placing every year in Post-level, twice in district level, and once at the state-level. My sister entered too, placing in both post and district. This is an excellent program, too.

    *now to go listen to it*

  4. Very good entry!! It is sad how freedom can make a country so selfish and apathetic. I would also like to say that I found your blog about two weeks ago and I love it! You do such a great job of writing down your thoughts and you are such an encouragement.
