“This Book will keep you from sin or sin will keep you from this Book.”

Favorite Verse: 2 Corinthians 11:3

As a child, I dreamed of becoming...Superman.

I trusted Christ as my a five-year old boy in a Lutheran Sunday school class.  A dear, white-haired old lady gave us a clear presentation of the gospel and led us in the sinner’s prayer.

My favorite song is...”Bow the Knee” by Ron Hamilton.  It reminds me of the true authority of Christ our Saviour. 

Something that makes me smile is...seeing people make right decisions.

Spiritually speaking, the One Person who has had the most significant impact on my life is...the Lord Jesus Christ.  As I listen to Him in His Word, receive His instruction, and do what He teaches me in all areas of life, I have grown as a husband, father, pastor, and, now, grandfather.

I desire to be known for being...obedient to Christ.

My favorite attribute of God is...that He IS love- 1 John 4:7-10.

I feel most loved when...people listen to me.  They do not have to necessarily DO what I say but, I do want them to know what I have learned in order for them to have some better choices in their decision-making process.  

Recently, God has taught important the heart is in maintaining good health in ALL areas of life- physically, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally (Proverbs 4:20-23).

Besides the Bible, some books that have revolutionized my life are...the works of Matthew Henry and Charles Spurgeon.

My idea of a relaxing “get-away” would be...going skiing or reading a good book.

I am motivated to serve the Lord because...even in my sinful condition, He loved me and gave His life for me.  Now, MY life’s purpose is to love and serve Him by entrusting my life to His Word and His promises.
