I have been married 45 years to my wonderful wife, Linda, and I have 2 grown children, 6 grandchildren and a new great-grandchild. Wow. Is all this really possible?
We’ve owned a local shop, The Birds Nest in Santa Rosa, for 23 years. Occasionally my wife and I will refurbish furniture so we can sell it online, so we can do some traveling around the world. This ‘online selling thing’ is pretty cool.
We have a two-and-half-acre organic farm that I love to work on. My most relaxing time is spent sitting on the tractor and mowing the high grass. It’s so peaceful to me. Reading on the back porch overlooking our property just restores me after a long day at ‘the office’, as well.
One of my newer favorite pastimes is messing with my co-worker Kristi’s head, whom I work with the most, or another graduate. Since I’m the pastor on staff, they all can really give it to me sometimes. There is no shortage of joking going on at Crossing the Jordan, so I’ve just learned to give it right back.
