getting to know me....

I live in the Midwest, and I don't apologize for that choice. After living in 6 states, i made more than a cheap guess as to where my life might have more purpose. We have been here for 10 years--the longest we've ever lived anywhere! Right on the Mississippi - with a view of the Meramec Valley out my kitchen window. No purple mountains majesty, Joshua trees, cricks, or plains.


How I spend my time:

I divide my time among my family, teaching, writing, making music, the study of theology, and developing better spiritual habits.
Some of those things I am very good at, and the others need more of my attention.
