I was born and raised in Waco, TX . I graduated from Waco High School and Baylor University. While attending seminary in Fort Worth, TX I met and married my wife Betty. We both completed our doctor's degrees there. We have two sons and two grandchildren. Betty has written Living Between the Ditches: When God Makes No Sense. As a hospital chaplain with heart and cancer patiens and as a pastor of 6 churches, I have discovered that there are many times when God makes no sense but life can be hopeful and meaningful then too, especially if you have a life coach to walk with you through it.
