I grew up in Fresno, California. I currently live in Oakhurst, California, after living in Louisville, Kentucky, for a couple years. My wife, Megan, and I were married in July 2012. We have three children.
Psalm 63:3. “Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you.” This is one of my favorites because God’s love for His people is steadfast. Through faith in Christ, we are more loved and accepted than we could ever imagine. Philippians 1:21. “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” For the Christian, all of life is meant to be lived for Christ, no matter what vocation God calls us into. The second half of this verse is important as well, because death is the worst thing that can happen to us, but for the Christian it leads to our greatest gain: eternity with Christ!
