HELLO World: The Seven Things About Me

1.  I love God more than I have ever loved anyone else.

2.  I earnestly and happily have surrendered my life to Christ Jesus’ Lordship.

3.  I preached my initial sermon on September 8, 2002 at Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church.

4.  I am a Vietnam Era veteran. I served my country as a member of the United States Air Force.

5.  One of my spiritual gifts is “helps.” I always have had the desire and the ability to help others, which is why I became a teacher, and why I always have had a heart for serving God.

6.  I have a peaceable spirit, but that doesn’t mean that I cannot deal with confrontations.

7.  Gospel Music tugs at my heartstrings; even still, I also love to listen to music by the Temptations, Ebonys, Unifics, Temprees, and so many more 60s and 70s R&B/Soul singers.
