My wife Jan and I moved to Williamsburg in 2004. In our early years in Orange County, CA, we were blessed with two daughters and a son. When the oldest was approaching high school, we moved to NH for about 11 years. A few years after moving here (after our time in NH), our son was married and last year our daughter who teaches was married. Our other daughter has a local floral design business in which Jan also works. As a couple, we are currently involved on the Marriage Mentoring team through which we have met some wonderful couples. In various seasons of life, I have lead small group studies, sung in the choir, met with men for Bible study, been involved with building a house for a marriage retreat center and dorms for a youth camp. Since much of my time is spent in my office working with families as their financial advisor, it is great to get out and be involved with hands-on projects. On some weeks I take off early to go kayaking or sailing with friends. One of my joys is helping others pinpoint their God-given strengths and unique design. It is intriguing to see that though we each have different gifts, talents, and experience, they are all woven into God’s plan for community, growth and serving one another. Travel continues to be a part of our annual activity with three handsome grandsons in the Midwest. We also have friends and family in various parts of the country that we enjoy seeing. It is an honor to be part of the family at the Williamsburg Community Chapel and share in the work along with the many that serve here.
