About Me

I am blessed with an incredible marriage to my best friend - Dawn. We have two beautiful daughters - Sarah, who is 20 and in college and Molly, who is 16 and going to be a Junior. I couldn't be more proud of all the women in my life. I love music and have the awesome opportunity to use it each and every day at First Baptist Church, Woodward, OK. God has blessed me and my family way beyond our wildest dreams. My life long dream has been to learn to fly and God is allowing me to fulfill that dream. As of right now I have 13.2 hrs and am within about 7 hrs from soloing. Dear God Help me!

Today was awesome, Dawn and I, before we had to register at the choral festival music conference in Spartanburg, South Carolina, took in the Biltmore mansion.  Well, to try and tell you how it looked or explain its magnitude, I couldn't even get close.  It has 250 rooms, 33 family and guest rooms 43 bathrooms, 65 fireplaces, 3 kitchens, and an indoor swimming pool.  It sits in the middle of 125,000 acres of forest, farms and dairies and five pleasure gardens.  I'm sure you know this family as the Vanderbilts.  You must go see it some time.  We were there for 6 hours and could have stayed another 2 or 3.  What a birthday present Dawn got me!  That's me at the front door of the mansion.
