I was born and raised in Tulsa, Oklahoma. My earliest memories are from the back pew of our church. I grew up in an Assembly of God church. As I got older I started reaching for “The American Dream”. College, get a job in my field of study, etc. I thought I was doing it right, but God had a different plan.
Three weeks after turning twenty-one I drove 1,648 miles from home to become a youth pastor in a young Assembly of God church in Massachusetts. I was the youth minister in two different churches.
I left the ministry and drove to Virginia Beach, Virginia to visit a friend, and wound up settling there. That is where I met my wife. We got married and due to a loss of a job we sold our house and moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma. We had two children there. For the hope of a good stable job we moved the family to Illinois. My wife and I divorced several years ago. I am now retired from AT&T. I have moved back home to Tulsa, to write.
Currently, I have moved to the Philippines. I no longer have to check the “Divorced” box on forms, as I have gotten married to a wonderful woman. She is a true gift from God. We are living in the Philippines until her Visa comes in, then we will move back to America.
I attend Hope of Life Church.
I feel my primary ministry now is in the form of writing.
