If you are going to hang out around this blog… then I figured you should know a little bit about me.
I grew up in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. My youth was spent playing in the woods, building forts, playing baseball and participating in the the social circle of our church.
When I was a teenager, I had a life changing encounter with God at Highland Retreat Camp, and I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ. It was the best decision I ever made.
I met my beautiful bride, Victoria, during my high school years at Eastern Mennonite HS in Harrisonburg, VA. We are both pretty strong willed and had to “chill out” a little before we started dating after high school. We were married shortly after in 1996. We have four amazing daughters (Twins in the middle). They are teenagers and learning to spread their wings. I love this season of family life.
I enjoy working with my hands, being outdoors, carpentry projects, gardening and homesteading. I believe in simple, sustainable living and taking care of the wonderful earth that has been entrusted to us.
I love sports and cheering on my favorite teams…. the Atlanta Braves, Liberty Flames Football, and UVA Cavaliers basketball.
And finally, after all these years in construction, I still like my pick-up truck and power tools. And, I am most comfortable in my jeans and a baseball cap!
I will share more about my career path in an upcoming post.
