Comment to those looking at my sermons: Preaching never blessed me as much as the study and preparation
Sermon or series that made a difference: Too many to count
One of my favorite illustrations: Love to use the story of the Gadarene demoniac, especially when talking to children.
Family: Wife: Sierra (49 yrs)
children: Mike (Ks) Mary (SC)
grandchildren (6) Kara, Chloe, Deacon, Emanuel, Justus, Colton
What my parents think of my sermons: never heard me.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: I think that I often bored her, because we sometimes spoke 8-10 times a week and I would use the same sermon several times.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Remember, you know more about what you are talking about than those you are talking to.
Books that have had an impact: Thru the Bible by J. Vernon McGee
Hobbies: fishing, painting, preparing Bible studies
If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: If you ever do too much for God, tell me; but I don't think you ever will.
Something funny that happened while preaching: In a Nursing Home I had an elderly lady get up from her seat, walk down the Isle and try to get the microphone away from me, all the time declaring I wasn't talking loud enough and she was going to show me how to use the microphone. I won the wrestling contest.
Several times had the patent's cat visit our services-she was a good listener.
What I want on my tombstone: He loved God.
