Ben Richert

It's a wonderful world we live in, and it makes more sense once you realize that it was created by God for His glory and our enjoyment. In particular you can understand how things are going, and how we treat each other--both the good and the bad--in light the fact that God made us but we fall disastrously short of what he designed us to be. I'm grateful that He sent his son Jesus to remedy this problem. So I can best be described as a follower of Jesus with the goal of pleasing God and serving Him well.
