Share A Few Things About Yourself
I am a husband, a father, and child of the King. I love spending time with my wife and two boys. I enjoy watching and playing sports, watching movies, and playing on my iPad. I grew up in Minnesota and after 17 years of being away I still miss the winter activities. My favorite vacation place is the lakes of Minnesota with my family. 

What Is Your Favorite Scripture?
Psalm 100:3 

How Do You Connect Faith & Learning In Your Classroom?
Being able to read and talk about God is a wonderful thing. The challenge is to take what we learn and use it. Each day I challenge my students to look for ways God will use us or shape us using the things we learn. Whether we read and discuss from our school textbooks, do our papers or reports, or when we are out on the playground, we are being used to shape someone else. I encourage students to follow Psalm 19:14, "May the words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer."
