Since Sep 30, 2004
My life verse is Jeremiah 33:3 "Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know." I depend on the Lord for His wisdom and guidance and hope to walk in obedience.
My priorities in life: God, family, ministry, and country. I love music, to travel, to meet new people, international politics, hiking, and roller coasters. Life is an adventure! Enjoy it and the people God has placed in your life!
I vote for conservatives who will represent my positions -- this includes conservative social issues. I'm not ashamed of Christ and applaud efforts to sustain our rights to the public square. There are still some statesmen who love our country--I thank God for senators like Jeff Sessions (AL). Barak Obama in no way represents my values or policies. I've traveled throughout the former Soviet Union and satellite countries and I can say with all certainty that socialist/marxist/communist governments do not benefit the general population. Nothing is for free!
I was raised in a military family which can be a culture of its own. I fully support our troops and pray for God to protect them and their families. May they have great success in their missions.
May the Lord richly bless you!

"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life." John 3:16
Jesus is the infinite God-man, God in the flesh. He died on the cross and rose from the dead to pay the penalty for our sins and to purchase a place for us in heaven, which He offers as a free gift.
Faith -- The Gift Of Eternal Life Is Received By Faith
Saving faith is not merely intellectual assent. It is trusting in Jesus Christ alone and what He has done rather than what we can do to get us to heaven.
