Comment to those looking at my sermons: Be gentle and know that God knows my heart.
Family: Wife and 4 daughters
What my parents think of my sermons: That my messages are a tad bit above great.
What my spouse (really) thinks of my sermons: "You stayed up all night for that?" No seriously, she appreciates the gifting of God in my life and she knows she’s a valuable part of my sermon writing and development.

Something funny that happened while preaching: I have always been a manuscript preacher, so on one occasion which just so happened to be one of the windiest days in Charlotte, NC - I was preaching outside. About 10 minutes into the message all the pages blew off the podium and there I was.My friend who just so happens to be an "outline guy" was cracking up because he knew I was out of my element. After the guys on the front row attempt to assemble all the sheets back together..I kinda ended with a plea for everyone just to pray!
What I want on my tombstone: Here lies the bones of one BAD TEXAN!
