Whats your favorite food?

I like all food so it is easier to ask me what I don't prefer to eat.  That would be eggplant, zucchini, and squash, except pumpkin with lots of sugar.


What do you do for fun?

Hang out with my wife and kids.  Occasionally play a game of golf or play a video game.


Whats your favorite bible story/verse?

Tough question because I love the bible and there are so many great stories and verses.  If I narrow to just one story and verse, I would say the story of Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah better know by their Babylonian names, Shadrack, Meshach, and AbedNego.  Where they defy King Nebuchadnezzar decree to bow down to his golden image.

 Their statement to the king in Daniel 3:16-18, is an awesome statement of faith and commitment to God.  It says,  "16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego answered the king, saying, "Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to defend ourselves to you.17 If you throw us into the blazing furnace, the God we serve is able to save us from the furnace. He will save us from your power, O king.18 But even if God does not save us, we want you, O king, to know this: We will not serve your gods or worship the gold statue you have set up." - Daniel 3:16-18(NCV)

What's your favorite Bible Story/Verse? 

I can't say just one, but I can narrow it down to 2 favorites: 

1.) “They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.” - Jeremiah 17:8 NLT


2.) “Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?” - Matthew 6:26 NLT
