A typical day in my life…
includes prayer, reading, exercise, study, meeting with incredible people, being with family and friends, thinking about the future.
I was born… a sinner.
My favorite thing about Arizona is…
everything. I love it here. Where else can you live a few hours from the beaches of California and Mexico, the cool mountains of Flagstaff and not to mention all the beautiful places to visit, hike, and mountain bike around Scottsdale…and the food scene is amazing too.
I’m listening to…my kids tell me it’s time for a new hairstyle.
My family… is a gift that I get to receive every day.
If I could have dinner with anyone…
it would be my dad who passed away a few months ago.
One thing I cannot live without is… my Bible.
When I was younger, I wanted to be…
a dinosaur trainer and then I became a bit less realistic and wanted to be a professional athlete.
I’m inspired by…
those who desire to live for something bigger than themselves.
The one person who motivates me is… Jesus.
If I could change anything in the world, it would be…
Me. When G.K. Chesterton was asked, “What is the problem with the world?” he said, “I am.” There’s a great deal of self-awareness there.
The perfect day…
would be spending time with family and friends. Life is about relationships.
My first job…
was a landscaper…in Phoenix in the summer.
My favorite escape…
is the beach in Hawaii.
My life… is very busy and very joyful.
I’m currently working on…
a new teaching series through the New Testament.
Always… admit when you are wrong.
Never… forget to tell your family you love them every day.

Biggest Dream…to die and then hear the words, “Well done!”
My Pet Peeve(s)… rudeness.
