Sorry for the confusing title, hopefully I can explain why
it fits. In 2013 I wrote a blog post intended to debunk the mythos of my

My brothers and sisters, my heart is heavy with grief for yet another heartbreaking moment in our nation. I offer this simple prayer up as a cry from my own heart and urge you to offer up the same. We must cover this nation with prayer and offer up the only...
No too long ago I read a blog post that compared sermon prep
to drowning; suggesting that only the breath of God can bring life to lungs

I was born and raised in Poughkeepsie, New York, just about 80 miles north of the Big Apple. My family and I live in Hyde Park, New York, the former home of Franklin Roosevelt, but I didn't let that stop us from living there. Seriously, it's a real nice town, rich with history. My wife Christine and I have been happily married for 33 years and have seven (yes seven) children, 5 boys and two girls. I am passionate about my relationships, with God and my family, they are the fuel for my creativity and the drive to finish strong.
