Born and raised in Wichita, Kansas, I went to Friends University and Asbury Theological Seminary before entering ministry in Kansas. I am currently the pastor of Leoti United Methodist Church in Leoti, Kansas. I am an Elder in the Great Plains Conference of the United Methodist Church. I love, from least to greatest, my dogs, my wife, and my God, and I love spending good time with all 3! The name of this blog comes from Psalm 118:24, “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” It was one of my grandmother’s favorite verses.
