“I am so blessed to have my incredible wife, Dawn, as my partner in life and ministry. I’m also blessed with two daughters, a stepson, a son-in-law and two grandchildren. One of my favorite quotes outside of the Bible is actually from Bob Marley. ‘The people who are trying to make the world worse never take a day off. Why should I? Light up the darkness’.”
