“Stories are webs, interconnected strand to strand, and you follow each story to the center, because the center is the end. Each person is a strand of story.” ~ Neil Gaiman, Anansi Boys
I believe our lives are like books; Every one with a story to tell. I want to know the stories.
I am a Christian, a husband to Virginia, the father of four adult daughters, one elementary-aged son, and grandfather of two beautiful girls. I’ve been happily married for over three decades, am a native Michigander, proud resident of Muskegon, lover of Lake Michigan, writer and compulsive book hoarder.
My personal vision is to serve others so that they are able to live full and rich lives, and share their stories with the world.
I believe that much of our soul is hidden, even from ourselves, and that only an encounter with a living God can help us discover who we really are.
I love to hold hands with my wife, read good books, winter camp, and walk our dogs. I enjoy using social media, pursuing an odd assortment of eclectic interests, traveling when I am able, and engaging in great conversations over a good cup of coffee.
My heart is committed to the city, and my soul is committed to God. It is in the city that I long to see Divine love lived out in the midst of ordinary moments. It is then, that those moments become sacred.
