Missoula is my hometown, where my mom still lives in my childhood home. I am the third of four siblings. My dad left when I was young. But, my mom, she demonstrated that faith in Jesus was to be an important part of our lives. I was a believer in Jesus at a young age and asked him into my life. I often tried to prove that I was His, by works and service. But, He taught me grace through His love. I am a recovering legalist, who now delights in God’s grace. After high school I traveled going to college, a short term mission trip and joining the Army. When I returned home I met my wife, Eryann with whom we have two boys, Orion who is married to Bre and have a daughter Sophia, and our younger son Jaden.
