“For while we were still weak, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. For one will scarcely die for a righteous person – though perhaps for a good person one would dare even die – but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” -Romans 5:6-8 (ESV)

First, I am very thankful to God for His tender love and mercy toward me by sending His Son Jesus Christ to die on a cross for my sin. I was an enemy of God, but now I have been adopted and have become his son. I trust that just as Jesus rose from the dead; defeating death and sin, I also will rise to meet my Savior when He comes. He is my portion and my joy. I will love, worship, and delight in Him forever for His lovingkindness is from everlasting to everlasting.

Second, my wife is a precious gift from God. I love her deeply. Bethany is truly a Proverbs 31 woman. She respects me and serves me in amazing ways. I am humbled continually as I reflect on the goodness of God in bringing her into my life. I have an excellent wife.

“An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.” -Proverbs 31:10 (ESV)

Third, I love our church. They are an amazing gift from God. Every week I receive grace through men and women who encourage and challenge me as they seek to know and obey God.

“Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly , makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.”

-Ephesians 4:15-16 (ESV)


The Lord is my chosen portion and my cup; The lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; indeed, I have a beautiful inheritance. -Ps 16:5-6

The grace of God is my theme, I embrace the sovereignty of God with great joy -He is my all-in-all. I am married to the most incredible man, who I love dearly and we are on this wild ride called LIFE! I love the journey, and I’m loving the people in my path!

A bit about me:  I’m the oldest of 4 kids, my siblings are Melissa (now married), Luke, and Rachel.  I grew up most of my life in Northern Maine.  One of my favorite places is my parents camp on Square Lake in the Northern Maine Woods.  I have visited 13 countries in 5 different continents.  I have climbed Pike’s Peak (14,110 ft) in Colorado, twice and Mount Katahdin in Maine, twice.  Before I die I want to visit, China, Ethiopia, Pakistan, Egypt, Israel, Ireland, Switzerland, Australia, and the Grand Canyon.  I love to run but haven’t lately since Joshua and I ran a 1/2 marathon in April 2007.  Its a goal of mine to someday do a triatholon, but I’m not that great of a bike rider.  I’m rediscovering the joys of playing piano and I love to sing.  My favorite color is orange and I wish I knew how to decorate things with that color nicely.  Joshua and I are currently pursuing an Ethiopian adoption!  We couldn’t be more excited about how God is building our family this way.
