I guess I sort of feel like King David who, as he looked back over the years of his life, said with a humble sense of deep gratitude, “Who am I, O Sovereign LORD, and what is my family, thatyou have brought me this far?”
Life for me has been more than I could have ever hoped for and greater than I could have ever imagined. I have a wife who loves me, children who respect me, a grandson who likes to playwith me, and a community of faith who is discovering God with me. The journey has not been easy, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
If you are looking for a life worth living and a journey worth traveling I would invite you to come walk with me.
After retiring from my twenty-three-year career as a Director in Student Services at
Parkland College, I enjoyed five years as an administrative assistant/bookkeeper at
English Center USA working with international students. When English Center USA
downsized to only offering individual tutoring to these students, I found a new career
home at Temple Baptist Church in October 2015. I feel blessed to work in a church
community that is so generous and welcoming.
When I’m not in the church office (which would be anytime that is not Monday,
Wednesday, or Friday between 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.), I love spending time with my
granddaughter, who is preparing to start college, my younger daughter who works at
Parkland College, and my older daughter who lives in Boston. I also treasure any time I
can crochet, knit, scrapbook, color, thrift shop, or complete crossword puzzles
