Grew up as a dirt-poor kid in Arkansas. Had my own “Saul of Tarsus epiphany” at 16 while I was mocking God (in a homemade satanic t-shirt, no less) and have been a full-on Jesus-freak since then. Viva la Jesus for coming after a moron like me!
Been married to my bride-for-life since 1992 and currently raising 3 rambunctious kids (penance for my own youth LOL). I’m well aware of my own shortcomings and regularly scratch my head as to why the Lord would use us yahoos to do his work. I’m not the man I want to be, but I reckon I never will while on this side of Glory (3 cheers for mercy!!!).
