God used my wife, Ann, and eldest son to “grab” me in middle age, some 20 years ago.  After several careers of modest professional accomplishment in the legal, energy, and healthcare fields, I have finally learned that my true identity is in Christ and that my primary mission is to worship and faithfully serve the Lord.  As such, one of my favorite Bible passages is James 2:14-26 (faith without works is dead).  Ann and I are grateful parents of 4 children and 13 grandkids.  When not trying to be an obedient disciple, I enjoy my family, watching European soccer (no commercials), and doughnuts (any kind, any place, any time).
