The two best decisions I ever made were both made early in life. At a young age I decided to follow Jesus, and not too much later in life, I decided to follow around a cute brown-eyed girl named Lea. After 23 years of marriage, Lea and I find ourselves loving our marriage together and the joys of raising our four boys, Taylor, Parker, Connor & Cooper.
At our house you’ll find a crazy cat named Dummy-Cat whose only goal in life is to figure out various ways to sneak into the house, and a very old poodle named Cocoa, who refuses to go and be with the Lord. It’s also not unlikely to find at our house a few extra boys over for supper or a baseball game.
I’ve been in ministry for twenty-three years and actually feel a little guilty that I’m getting paid to do what I love to do. I love to try and live my faith out-loud. I personally believe that church isn’t something you simply do on Sunday, but how you live every day of the week.
I love simple things like a good story, a good joke and a good cup of coffee. I’m also an avid runner.
A battle with cancer in 2003 helped me to rediscover the important things in my life … faith, family and freedom in Christ.
