My favorite Bible verse:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6
When I am not working, you can find me …
Running, reading, golfing, traveling, watching sports or a good movie.
When I grew up, I wanted to be …
A forest ranger.
