I was born...true!
Life verse..."Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6
My idea of a perfect day is...spending a day with my wife being stress free, checking out sites in a cool new unexplored place (at least unexplored by us), eating at some really cool restaurants, going out to some kind of theater play or movie, staying in a hotel, sitting in the hot tub, and drifting off to sleep (not while in the hot tub though).
My favorite city outside of St. Joseph/Stevensville…I really like Chicago. There are some really cool places to go there.
My significant others are…A crazy, awesome lady named Jen is my wife and I have been blessed with two amazing, fun, joy-filled daughters named Lydia and Abigail.
Biggest pet peeve…Gravel roads and having to turn around to get something I (or someone else) forgot.
Trademark cliché or saying…"That’s stinkin'…(awesome, annoying, cool, weird, etc.)”
If I had a different job I’d be…Selling hot dogs from a cart somewhere in a major city.
Nobody knows that I…If I told you, then I would not be able to say, “Nobody knows that I…”
I am happiest when…I can cross things off my list.
Guests at my fantasy dinner party would be…Jesus, Jen Sommer, Chuck Swindoll, Bill Hybels, Andy Stanley, Michael Jordan, the president of the United States, my friend Sean and his family, Doug Fields, Will Smith, and the Apostle Paul.
If they made a movie about my life, the actor who should play me would be…Denzel Washington
Likes…Good baseball caps
