I am blessed with a great family. My wife Ellie and I are enjoying raising our three boys in Parkersburg, Iowa. We are fortunate to have most of our immediate and extended family in Parkersburg or nearby communities.
My faith plays a crucial part of my life. I believe my faith keeps pushing me to become a better person. I was fortunate to have parents who were excellent role models and taught me the importance of faith in my life. Jesus saving grace gives me great comfort in knowing 1) where my dad is spending eternity 2) I am saved through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ. In the end this is the most important component in all of our lives.
Athletics has and always will play a major role in my life. I've learned so many life lessons through participating and coaching sports. I feel it is a great tool to teach young people the value of teamwork, commitment and hard work.
I want to impact lives in positive ways. I get that opportunity as a teacher, administrator, coach, and public speaker. I have a true passion for affecting lives.
