BA (Dordt University)
M.Div. (Calvin Theological Seminary)
I was born in Rock Rapids, IA, which is also now the physical location of Alpha Omega Publications and Ignite Christian Academy. I live in Inwood, Iowa, which is about 30 miles west of Rock Rapids with my wife and our Bischon. We have two sons married with children, one son, once married, with children and one single son single. Our single son lives in Arizona, but the others are all near.
Ephesians 2:8-9: “For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God—not by works, so that no one can boast.”
I like this verse because it tells me I did not do anything to earn my salvation; therefore, there is nothing I can do to lose it either.
Lugging frozen halves of large hogs from the freezer in which they were hanging into a refrigerated truck where we hung them so they could be taken to a processing plant and turned into bacon, ham, and ribs.
I love working in the yard and our flower garden with my wife, and fishing with my grandchildren.

I would be very happy if Karen and I would have time and opportunity to travel and see more of the natural beauty in the USA.
