I am first and foremost a follower of Jesus Christ. Beyond that I am blessed to have a great wife, Denise. She does her best to keep me in check while supporting me through this whole journey as I’ve dragged her along. Plus she’s smokin’ hot. I also have two children in college that I am so proud of. My son Mason is a musical guru that blows me away not only with his talents, but his heart and convictions as well. My daughter Kaylee has the perfect blend of her mother and I; She is bold and very strong willed, with a heart that is full of compassion for people. Both stand strong in their beliefs and challenge me in mine all the time.
I love engaging the culture and challenging ideas and concepts through thoughtful debate (with a smidge of sarcasm and a dash of humor). I am just a screwed up sinner that is constantly striving to become more like the one I serve. I am a defender of the traditional family; I avoid holding grudges and try not to let anything get personal, as I understand that many of those who oppose me are screwed up sinners like me. I realize that sometimes people that have been hurt tend to lash out, but I try to love and pray for those who attack me. I’m just one beggar telling other beggars where to find water. With that in mind, I detailed much of my past and served up all my dirty laundry for the world to see in my first blog post. >Click here to read all about it< I described not only my struggle with anger and bitterness, but the journey I’ve taken from abuse and violence to healing and forgiveness. I am living proof that redemption is real, Jesus was raised, and salvation is a free gift available to all who seek it. Without all that, the change in my life would not make any sense.
I will give you my 2 cents and in return I only ask that you give me yours. Then then we can all better understand and defend what we believe.
