Onward and Upward!

Arriving at Maumelle Park, Arkansas

Some of my friends and colleagues think I’ve simply lost my mind. As far as they are concerned, I am throwing away the most sought after career in the U.S. – a federal government job. What most don’t understand is the reasoning behind it . . . I’ve been called into ministry.
My first ministry is to my family. Being a Godly husband, father, and leader is what God has ordained in me, but for the last four years, I have endured 15 hour work days (including 3-4 hour daily commutes) leaving Saturday and Sunday the only time to unwind, relax, and spend time with my wonderful wife and children.
