I grew up in Brevard, NC for the first 9 years of my life. Moved to Columbus, NC until I was 19. Spent about a year in Charleston, SC as well as Bremerton, WA then in 1990 returned to Columbus, NC and in 1992 moved to Hendersonville, NC and have been here since that time.
I am married and have 4 children. Two older boys currently serving as submariners in the USNavy. The other two are in college. I love my family. They are my joy and delight.
I have very deep Southern Baptist roots. My grandfather Reese was a preacher. I grew up being drug to church every time the church doors were opened. While these are my roots, I prefer to say that I follow Jesus, rather than be tied to a specific denomination. I learned years ago, that Christianity is a way of life. It is not based on what religion you claim but based on the One you follow and the relationship you have with Him. I choose to follow Jesus because He is the only way. John 14:6
I am about as far from perfect as any human being can be. I have my issues and my quirks. I am just trying to live for Jesus the best I can and sometimes that’s moment by moment.
