Favorite Bible Verse: Psalm 46:1. “The Lord is our Refuge and Strength and ever present help in times of trouble.” It reminds me that God is always with me and there for me whenever I need Him.
When I attended grade school, I was influenced by some outstanding teachers that led me to be a teacher. I enjoy coaching and especially like to see athletes using their God given ability to use the talents He has given them to their fullest.
I enjoy all sports especially golf and bowling. I also enjoy watching television. I also enjoy going to the movies.
One fun fact: I like to collect PEZ dispensers and have a small display in my office. The PEZ candy is good too!
