  • Happily married, proud father of eight children and proud grandfather of two grandchildren.
  • I am the oldest of four and enjoyed coming from a huge extended family (My father was the youngest of ten)
  • I am extremely grateful for the many skills my father taught me in terms of working with my hands and doing for myself, skills that most everybody had just a couple of generations ago
  • I am constantly amazed at how much I can learn from those of humble occupations and of lowly status
  • I enjoy hunting, fishing, camping, backpacking, and the great outdoors.
  • I very much resonate with the following ideas: Popular and trendy does not make right, We should always give our ancestors a vote, Perpetual progress is NOT a real thing, Educational attainment does not equate to wisdom, and That God exalts the humble and not the proud.
  • I am reminded daily that technology does not seem so much to be serving us as we are serving it
  • I try to remind myself daily that it is about the kids and NOT about us
  • I much appreciate a good book, faithful friends, and a loyal dog.
  • Thanks be to God for the many blessings He has given me, unworthy though I am!
