“Although I fail often, my primary goal is to be a disciple of Jesus Christ.  Getting to know Him is the most rewarding journey I have taken.   If I love Him with all my heart and continue to be patient, and strive to do his will, he will teach me to be a loving husband to my wife, an honorable father to my children, a profitable citizen in the community,  and a compassionate friend to my neighbor.”
