“A NEW COMMANDMENT I GIVE TO YOU, THAT YOU LOVE ONE ANOTHER JUST AS I HAVE LOVED YOU, YOU ALSO ARE TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER.”
– JESUS –

I WAS JUST TWELVE YEARS OLD when my dad took me on my first of many trips to the beautiful country of India. I was quickly enamored with all the colors, the life, the culture, and especially the people. The vast contrast from my hometown of Boise, Idaho was astounding. It was on that trip that my heart really opened up to the power of love. I had the beautiful opportunity to spend quality time with some orphan children as well as visit families living in the slums. I was blown away by the joy and love that so many of these individuals had despite their dire circumstances. It was on that initial trip where I learned that life is not about possessions or the job you have or even who you think you are. I learned that life was fulfilled in love. Not just being loved but more importantly giving love. From that point on I would never be the same. I went back to my hometown with a purpose and a calling that has been burning in my soul ever since. We all have one short life to live and than its done. My true hearts cry is that I don’t waste my life just living for myself and my own desires. I pray my life would had purpose and most importantly selfless love. I have a lot to learn but I am so thankful to be on the journey.

“LOVE BEGINS AT HOME, AND IT IS NOT HOW MUCH WE DO, BUT HOW MUCH LOVE WE PUT IN THAT ACTION.”

I have been so blessed with my amazing wife Miranda and our six wonderful kids. They are truly the spark in my life that motivates me to be better, to work harder, and to love greater. My family is the greatest treasure I could ever attain in this lifetime.

LOVE, FAMILY, AND ADOPTION
I married my first sweetheart, Miranda. Together we have two biological children and have adopted four more from China.

We continue to stay open to whatever road God wants to take us down and He has opened the doors for us to be able to adopt again and we are thrilled and blessed for this wonderful opportunity!!!
