First and foremost thank you Jesus! You are the great author and finisher of my faith. Thank you, Pam for being my wife, my friend, my lover and my wise counselor, as well as a good editor. Thank you to my children, Sarah and Andrew, for growing up in a pastor’s home when you had rather your father be anything else than a pastor. I know it was not always easy on you. Thank you, Mom for always believing in me and encouraging me to do my best. Thank you, Ken for being such a good son in law and father to my six precious grandchildren; Moriah, Julia, Anna, Jackson, Grant, and Timothy David. Thank you to Larry and Terry Zolnowski and my six adopted grandchildren; Brooke, John, Josh, Jessica, Luke and Grace.
Thank you, Larry and Charlotte Meeks, and Tony and Joan Defoe for being the fun friends that we need. You always help us to learn to laugh again when we need to lighten up.
Thank you to Carlton and Dorothy Baker, Rick and Elizabeth Palmer, and Larry and Charlotte Meeks. You are dear friends as well as my church elders who have faithfully stood by my side and given me wise counsel and encouragement for every area of my life. Thank you to Danny and Marybeth Harvey who took a bold stand with me when it was not easy to do.
Thanks to my wonderful church staff and families that make church an exciting place to be. You guys are the greatest! Thank you, Terry and Kathi Wilkinson, John and Christina Kimer, David and Julie Ayris, Brian and Jenni Highberger. Thank you, Jenni for patiently formatting this book.
