As the son of a believing mom but unbelieving dad, I think I have lived 1 Cor. 7:14. My mom raised us going to church, and she prayed for us probably daily. Each of my siblings and I took a different path to the Lord, but by His grace He has called us holy. 

I came to faith in Christ at 12 years old. In my first five years as a Christian, the best signs of any real life-change would have been a reduction in expletives and increased respect for my mom. I was always a relatively “good boy”, so I naturally gravitated to a legalistic, and at times judgmental, “follow-the-rules” type of Christianity. I am thankful that as I’ve grown older (and hopefully wiser), God has given me a  more gracious attitude and understanding of “do not judge so that you will not be judged” (Mt. 7:1). 

Fast-forwarding (quite a bit), I am happily married to my wife Michelle, and we have three children. We have been attending Cornerstone since 2011, participating in various ministries over the years. We have always placed a high priority on church life, and I look forward to continuing to serve the church in whichever ways God leads.
