Favorite Food(s): Bacon. Scrambled
eggs come a close second.
Favorite Band: Matt Maher, though I
got a Hawk Nelson CD at Christmas I am liking a lot.
Favorite Pastime: Drawing, digital
painting and wood working.
Favorite Saint: St. Michael, St.
Joseph, St. Ignatius, St. John Bosco, St. Theresa (all of them)... Do I only
get to pick one? If I only get to pick one, then my dad. Please pray that the
Holy Spirit inspires his Bishop to put forth the cause to the Vatican.
Favorite Scripture: I love the
passage of the burning bush, the part where Yahweh tells Moses to take off his
sandals. How often do we walk hollow ground and are not aware of it? Isn't God
present here and now?
Favorite Book: I am currently
reading "The Story of a Soul", St. Therese of Lisieux’s autobiography.
Why I work in Youth Ministry: I have
a deep desire that my sons come to know and love Christ. My love for our youth
is not much different. I want to share that love of Christ with them and help
them understand our faith and learn the disciplines that will keep them
connected to Christ throughout their lives.
About Me: I was illustrating children's books after studying drawing and
painting and having done cartoon animation, web and multimedia work, and
teaching and recruiting at the college level. I pray using drawing and it was a
desire to share faith through art that brought me to ministry. If you draw,
paint, like anime or manga or simply would like to talk about art, please
introduce yourself. I'd love to meet you!
