About Your Family
I am the middle of 3 children with an older brother, Spencer, who recently graduated from the University of Oklahoma and works for Fox Sports in Norman, Oklahoma, and my younger sister, Natalie, who is a sophomore in high school and hopes to become a nurse. My parents, Stephen and Lisa, have been married for 25 years, and live on a few acres in my hometown of Paradise, Texas where they have four dogs, Lucy, Dude, Bentley and Maverick.

What’s your story?
I was fortunate enough to be raised in a Christian home with two incredible parents who loved me so unconditionally. Having grown up in the church, I always had a good understanding of what the Gospel was, but primarily from a storybook perspective. I knew what the Gospel was, but I didn’t know what it meant to me individually or relationally. Around the age of 10, after extensive prompting from the Holy Spirit and insight from my parents, I made the decision to profess Jesus as my Lord and savior. Over the next 9 years, the Lord would allow me to fail, time and time again, sharpen me and mold me into who I am today. From being led to Dallas Baptist University, to the doors opened here at RockPointe, the Lord’s hand has been so evident in my life, and I am grateful and humbled by His unending grace and favor that I am so undeserving of.

What’s something about you most people don’t know?
I have crooked pinky fingers! No, they are not, nor have they ever been broken. It’s something genetic and I inherited them from my grandma!

What is your trademark expression?
“That’s tough” or “Oh shooooot”

Besides the Bible, what is something you’d recommend someone to read?
The Maze Runner series

What are you most excited about?
Watching the Lord move in the lives of others!

What do you like to watch on TV?
Friends, The Office, NBA, an OU football game

What do you do in your free time?
I love to play disc golf and the guitar, doing anything outside (ideally sitting out by the fire), or reading a good book – which I seldom make time for.
