I live in Winthrop Harbor, IL with my wife, Mandy, and our four children where I serve as a pastor. Pastoral ministry is my first priority before writing or presenting PLUM seminars as my heart is called to serve the local church first and foremost in my ministry to others. God has graciously allowed me to enjoy hobbies such as: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (Crosley Gracie!), basketball, playing video games with my kids, family bike rides, and dates with my wife.
