Although I grew up in a church and became a Christian at age 18, I did my best to avoid God. That changed once Rhonda and I were married and welcomed our daughter, Emily, to the world. Wanting to bring her up in a Christian environment, we started attending church. Our son Nick joined us for the ride a couple years later. But I was still playing at being a Christian.
In 2000, after health issues, I realized I needed to learn what the Bible said for myself. So I started to attend Bible studies and took formal classes. I certainly have had some great teachers along the way and am happy that I have an authentic relationship with Jesus. Now my goal is to pass along the truth of the Scriptures to others.
