I was raised in church all my life. Having both parents as ministers challenged me to do what was right, although I did not always follow their example. My parents also sang in church and my mother wrote songs, so it came natural for me to sing and write as well. I grew up singing in church as we traveled all over the country, as my dad was a traveling evangelist. I married at the young age of nineteen and not having been settled in a home much it did not last long and I found myself divorced after a very short marriage. I have been married three times, having four boys born out of the second marriage which lasted for ten years. I have had regrets in my life, needless to say. I began writing songs out of some of the experiences I had as a teenager and some out of my adult challenges, being a Christian and going through these divorces. I have learned many lessons as a man which has taught me to be grounded in my faith, and believe for the best. I have basically raised my four boys on my own and we have come a long way. I now have four grandchildren and have tried to teach my boys by my mistakes and to not follow that same heartache. I hope that in my music I can relay the message that Christ is real and He quickly forgives us as we learn to walk in this unforgiving world. We can become who He calls us to be by learning from example and searching out what He plans for us regardless what others think of us. I hope that one day I can look back and see the trail that I left for the men following behind me to be clear, and they will know that I followed Christ to the best of my ability. I hope that my songs will touch one heart that they may know Christ in a whole new wayâ¦â¦ My goal is to come to the place where I can help others achieve their dream as I have dreamed...
