Comment to those looking at my sermons: Usually the way they come out is a little different than what you get in the written form.
Family: My wife, Karen, is a 4th grade teacher at Immanuel Lutheran School in Marshfield. She has a Master’s degree in elementary school counseling and is working on her Doctorate in Adult Education with an emphasis in administration. We have three children: Clarissa, Andrew, and Joel.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: They’re too long!
Hobbies: Tae Kwon Do, inline skating, fishing, reading
Something funny that happened while preaching: Once my youngest son just wouldn’t stop fussing during the service, so I helped my wife out by holding him during the sermon. It worked! He didn’t cry, and I think it made the sermon a memorable one for the people.
