What do you do to relax and find balance in your life?
I love the outdoors and any type of hunting is great! When we look for it, a quiet time can be found in many areas of life. There is no substitute for spending time with the Lord.

What is your favorite thing about Leoma Baptist Church?
Anyone can belong here. No matter what walk of life you are in, you will feel welcome and loved.

What’s playing on your iPod/cd player?
Everything (except heavy metal) but it has to have meaning and be a complete story. Christian music that I can worship to when I’m alone driving down the road and can sing really loud.

If given the choice, the one thing you would never taste again would be…
Coconut! I’ve tried it right off the tree in El Salvador and fresh coconut is not any better than store bought.

What is the most memorable quote you have heard or read recently?
Temptation is not designed as a moment to struggle and fail.  Temptation is meant as an opportunity to glorify God.

What makes you laugh?
My kids, Oh and funny cat videos.

Are you a morning or night person?
Morning. Early to rise work hard and to bed early.

What is your favorite movie?
This is a tough one, we must guard our hearts against evil. “Swiss Family Robinson”-the original.

What was your favorite book you read as a child?
That’s been awhile, must not have one.

Desk: Messy or organized?
Organized- Everything must have its place.
