What is your life verse and why?
It’s more like scripture of the moment for me sometimes. Right now, it’s Isaiah 49:23, “…those who trust in Me will never be disappointed.” That’ll preach. After a year we just came through, it’s good to be reminded that God never disappoints. Our situations change, but He is the same day in and day out.
What’s your most prized possession and why?
Probably the first Bible my dad preached out of when he was younger. It’s always within my sight while I am on the air. A reminder of the calling God has placed on my life too.
What are you most proud of in the last year?
Intentionally made the most of the time with my family during the pandemic. We had some good times!
Do you sleep with a top sheet? Why or why not?
Ha. I am so hot-natured that’s about all I can handle. My wife is frozen all the time. She has layers upon layers. I’m doing my best not to suffocate.
If you could have any zoo animal as a pet, which would it be?
Baby Chimpanzee–All. Day. Long.
What would be the first thing you’d do if you won the lottery?
Wake Up. No, probably take care of my family, and then do an Extreme Makeover: Ministry Edition. Take care of those meeting the needs of their community.
Do you hit the snooze button or wake up immediately?
My 4 yr. old is my alarm. Whenever she is up, we are up.
How would your 10-year-old self react to what you do now?
He would love it! And would wonder when the Super Mario Nintendo break was going to happen.
What was the best vacation you ever took and why?
First time to Disney World with my kids. Nothing like seeing the wonder in their eyes. Never want to get so busy that I miss the wonder in my life too.
How old were you when you started working?
My first job was at the age of 4, helping my mom and dad fill communion cups at our church in inner-city Chicago. That was the dream job, because I got to drink the left over grape juice after church. Real job, with real money was 16, bag boy at a grocery store. Still know how to “correctly” bag groceries to this day.
What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
Raking leaves for a neighbor up the street when I was a kid. My mom volunteered me, and of course it was the windiest weekend of the entire year. The guy had like 400,000 trees in his backyard. Impossible to get it done. I still have nightmares. That is one reason I don’t have any trees in my backyard. Saving my son some scars.
