This is NOT serious…but this gives you a taste of the "other" part of my life. As I say above, I have the blessing of wearing a number of "hats" in life – I'm a husband to a wonderful and lovely lady, Vicky; I'm the dad to four great kids and grand-dad to five wonderful girls. In addition, I'm honored to lead a faith community in Monroe (Peace @ Monroe), be an Adjunct Professor for awesome universities and colleges (Azusa Pacific University, Concordia University, and Trinity Lutheran College). I get the opportunity to play music in many different settings and besides that, I walk in life and in Kingdom living as a Jesus follower with awesome friends around the world!
Yet, one of my favorite things to do is puppetry…it goes back over 35 years to when I was working with Lutheran Youth Alive and assisting my friend Kevin Murphy with training teams for youth ministry. I've been playing around with puppets ever since. Leonardo USED TO BE a lion…then Leo was permenantly buried accidently…so he morphed into a duck. Anyway, this is the greeting the Leonardo gave to our faith community via our email blast system. I thought I would end my blogging year with a special Christmas greeting to you! Merry Christmas – see ya in 2013.
