MDiv Pastoral Counseling
MEd Elementary Education
I grew up in Southern California, but I have lived all over the United States, including Arizona, Minnesota, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Virginia. We currently live on a hobby farm in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. I married my best friend, and we have four children, who all have been homeschooled.
1 Corinthians 16:14. “Let all that you do be done in love.” This is my family’s verse and what we try to live by, so it is important to me. I think this also encompasses what Jesus asks of us. If whatever we do whether it be for others or for him, if it is done in love, then we come from the right place.
I mowed lawns, dug trenches, and helped install irrigation systems for my dad’s landscaping company.
My hobbies include reading with my kids, writing stories, rocking on my front porch watching birds, fishing, tubing behind the boat, dancing, car karaoke, and farming. More than all those things I love to share the Gospel.
Bucket List Item
I want to visit every state with my children (we still have 20 states to go).
I love the Colorado River in Arizona, but I also love the green of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Person I’d Like to Meet
I would want to meet Martin Luther. He is quoted saying, “I have so much to do today that I’ll have to spend the first three hours in prayer.” I think that says a lot about the man.
