My wife, Amy, is a non-fiction book editor with Baker Book House. Authors she has worked with include Warren Wiersbe, Haddon Robinson, and Mary Beth Chapman. She is editor-in-chief of Exhale, the journal of the Breathe Writers’ Conference. Amy writes poetry (several of her poems have been published in literary journals) and plays the violin. She has a deep love for the Lord and a strong life of prayer and devotion to Christ. Amy is a breast cancer survivor (almost 15 years ago). She is now in excellent health.
We have one son, Ben (age 17), who wants to be a Christian rock star. Ben plays the bass guitar, writes music, and has a very creative mind. He loves Jesus and has a good handle on Christian theology. Ben also has a deep sense of justice and mercy – He loves people. In his work at a local ice cream shop, his boss says that Ben is the employee who most connects with the customers on a personal level.
