Comment to those looking at my sermons: The Bible has one topic - salvation through Jesus. The Bible says "there is nothing new under the sun." All I know and preach is an amalgam of things learned from other men and women during a lifetime of church and then run through the grid of my own life and quiet time. It’s all Jesus anyway, so credit goes to the Lord - both for their teachings and mine. It is my prayer something from them and me blesses the Lord and you.

Family: Wife and two kids (Jr High and High school)
What my parents think of my sermons: The first time I preached my mother told me three times how much she hoped I would be prepared since I was preaching at our home church in front of all of her friends. Now she knows and loves my preaching.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: My wife loves my style of expository preaching over a passage of scripture - but she cringes every time I begin another story about how wonderful she is.
Best advice given to me about preaching: Always tell them about Jesus, always using the Word of God. Adrian Rogers

If I could Preach one more time, I would say...: God loves you more than you cam imagine. Give your life to Him and begin the journey of finding out how much!
What I want on my tombstone: He may not have had much, but he left it all on the field of play.
