Sweet 16…my…not so little baby girl!
What a great week to spend time with my youngest daughter. She turned 16 this week! I took her to get her drivers permit…Yeah Gabs…you passed the first time…quit sweatin’ it…you did great!
Off to the bank to work on her accounts, then I got to take her today to have a procedure done on her hand. OUCH! The first time she has ever been cut…she is hoping it will be the last. It was all better after we went to Dairy Queens for a Heath Bar and Banana Split Blizzard!
She is downstairs sleeping. Hard to believe how fast they grow up. I love her every bit as much today as I did the moment I first held her in my arms.
It has been great to just hang around my baby. In fact…I got to take both of my girls to Paris, France and spend 2 weeks alone with them on a missions trip over Spring Break! I love my kids! I will never sacrifice my time with them over my work or my ministry. I love you Gabby…and I want you to know how much Jesus loves you and I want more than anything for you to arrange your life to live life with Jesus everyday, because without Him…you have no life…at least not REAL LIFE! Happy Birthday!

I am a visionary architect who is passionate about seeing dreams realized and implemented so that together we can better our world physically and spiritually. I get excited about leadership development and seeing the church multiplied as people embrace their creative side and breathe life and hope into their world. There is nothing that motivates me more than serving the young, the lost, the poor and the elderly.
I have been serving the Lord full-time for over 35 years. I consider myself a ‘life coach.’ For many years I was on the playing pitch. My role today is to train and invest in the next wave of ‘players’ who are serious about winning. My team runs to ‘win’…to win the prize of knowing that we embraced the high calling of God. To serve him with all that we have and give him all the glory.
I have been privileged to serve God as a youth pastor, school administrator, church planter, lead pastor, mission director, business owner, crisis and catastrophe director and college professor. That God chooses to use me to direct our amazing team blows me away. I love my job!
