What my parents think of my sermons: My parent never got to hear me preach they died when I was in my early 20’s
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: Most of the time she is just boared... No She is very helpful and enjoys the illustration. She was the first one that I ever Baptized as a new believer.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Preach the Word and then Duck!!!
Preach you must not unless Preach you must.
It doesnt matter if there is 3 or 300 preach like there is 300.

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: Let us have a passion for the lost... We may be the only Jesus they will ever see.
Something funny that happened while preaching: When I was baptizing a young man he slipped down the stairs. Then when he went to walk back up he slipped again...
Once I grabed the mic while in the baptistry, "Don’t do that" The congregation found it quit funny.
My youngest son came to me on the platform and with the mike on telling me that she needed to use the potty.
What I want on my tombstone: He was found faithful to the end
