About:
In my younger years, I used to think I was a Christian because I took up space on a pew. I was born again the night of 29 Dec. 1978, after a third attempt at suicide in five days. I was going through an unwanted divorce, in a marriage that lasted only 6 months. On that third attempt something in my broke, I think it was the Pride of running my own life my own way. Then a rush of guilt over my utter sinfulness came in and I found myself on my knees weeping like a baby, crying out to GOD, "Lord forgive me! If you have a purpose for my life, You will have to come into my heart and You will have to run my life, because I can't do it. I am making a total mess of it."

DID HE? OH MY YES! He changed me from the inside out. He made me sick of my Country Music one night at work, and I changed the channel, and discovered we had a Christian Radio Station. Dr. John MacArthur was just starting a series on Revelations, on his "Grace To You" radio program. I genuinely was hearing the WORD taught for the first time in my life, and it was exciting. He brought a godly woman into my life and a year later we married. now 34 years and counting. He put it on my heart to move us west and I did not know why?

To make a long story short, I found He wanted me to start a Prison Ministry at Pelican Bay State Prison near Crescent City, CA. I was a Volunteer Chaplain there for 9 years, and then later for 6 more years, at another Super Max Prison near Susanville, CA. Though I am retired now, and moved to be near grandchildren as they grew up; I still enjoy discussing the Bible and encouraging the brethren.

My wife passed away a couple years ago, so I moved back to Lincoln, NE. I was born and raised about 70 miles from here. I still have some family in this area.
