Picture: It's of me and my crazy family on The Color Run in 2012.
Family: I met my wife JoLynn in college and she has given me four wonderful children: Megan and Amanda (both now married), Micah, and Caleb.
Education: I went to a bunch of schools (fun, but not too productive…) finally getting my life together and graduating from Criswell in Dallas and Moody Grad School in Chicago.
Personal Stuff: As a missionary kid, I’ve always known who Jesus was, but it wasn’t until college that I really began to look at how He fit into my life. Discovering the answer has been a mysterious, exhilarating, long (and sometimes difficult) journey, but I could not imagine a life without Christ.
Outside of Church: I love eating, archery, rappelling, fixing cars (too often), spending time with friends (never enough) and raising my children. Some of my favorite books include Mere Christianity and all things CS Lewis, Blue Like Jazz, and Crazy Love by Francis Chan. A few of my favorite movies are Napoleon Dynamite (ughhhhhhhhh), Princess Bride (Inconceivable!), Shadowlands, and Blues Brothers (We’re on a mission from God!)
My book BIZARRE Bible Stories was just reprinted in paperback, and BIZARRE Bible Stories 2 is at the printers, due out in bookstores in Spring 2013.
