My Books & Projects

Vulnerability is a gentle giant that knocks down walls. He’s not talked about much, and most people fear him, but he needs to be embraced. So, I write with my heart, speak with my ears, mentor with my margin, and create with my mind.

MY DNA IS DIVINELY TWISTED:

SOME CONTEXT

 

I’ve had 5 near-death experiences that I know of:

  • Taken to ER for Asthma attack at age 5
  • Mom saved me from drowning at age 7
  • Car accident (windshield/head) at age 16
  • Car accident (windshield/head) at age 26
  • Motorcycle accident (life flight) at age 27

I’m the Faith-based Rep for Washington County Drug Court even though I’ve been arrested for:

  • Juvenile & Misdemeanor Theft
  • Aggravated Theft I
  • PCS & DCS
  • DUI

 

• I was knit together around the first part of October ’75 and was born on June 10th, ’76
• I was born in Shreveport, La., raised all over Texas and I live in Newberg, OR
• I’m joyfully married (1997). I have one son (Braylon ’02) & one daughter (Angel ’06)
• I thought about going to Washington State University but I ended up going to Washington County

• I don’t have a high school diploma, GED or any college credits
• I should be dead but I’m alive and because I died, I’m now truly alive
• I’ve discovered multiple hidden treasures over the last ten years
• I like vacuum lines in the carpet
• I’m fascinated with seeds
• I absolutely love Sushi

MY PERSPECTIVE

I see things differently because of the things I've been through, and the things I've done. I recently realized while walking down Grateful Lane with my friend Perspective, I wasn't walking down Angry Street.

Purpose Driven!

Purpose Driven!

The night I had dinner with Rick Warren at the Ritz Carlton. I don't share this to brag or be a name-dropper. I share this ONLY to encourage and inspire others. #E320

Judge to Prison

Judge to Prison

I once drove a judge to prison. The same judge (Judge Tom Kohl) who presided over my felony drug charges. We also spoke at a Prison Fellowship Conference together.

When you ask questions that can't be answered with a yes or no, you learn more. Everyone has a story, and they don't always believe what you think they believe.
