Lifer. That’s me…a lifelong student of Christian Science. My roots are in the Midwest, Columbus, Ohio, where I have lived my entire life. I have attended one church from youth and teach the high school and college-aged group in the same Sunday School my mom enrolled me in.
Living Christian Science has given me stability, peace and happiness in all facets of my life. It sustained me through my college experience. It has been an integral part of my family life and career.
For many years I worked with my dad in a neighborhood hardware store we owned together. The time came when I felt impelled to share what I had been learning about the Christ Science with others and to devote part of my time in helping them with their challenges. This led to my commitment to full-time practice.
I have always enjoyed what might be called a “teacher spirit.” In fact, my graduation from Ohio University included a teaching certificate in secondary education. So, it felt natural to be a part of the 2006 Normal class.
I was appointed Committee on Publication for Ohio earlier that same year and continue to hold that position.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, Crystal. We have two sons, one a kindergarten teacher and the other about to enter college pursuing an engineering degree.
If you were to search keywords in my life, you would find (in addition to God, Christian Science, and family) astronomy, butterflies, entrepreneur, physics, writing, and handy.
