WOW! Where should I begin? First of all, my relationship with Jesus is priority. Just like the old hymn sings "without Him I would be nothing." Things, people and places will come and go in our lives but 1 thing holds true all of the time. The never failing love of my Father, Jesus Christ. He has sustained me throught many situations in many different areas in my life. And what amazes me is that even when I slip and make mistakes, (like we all do)Jesus doesn't throw me away. He is there to pick me up, dust me off, teach me what I need to learn, love me and let me start again. Well...that is after we honestly ask for forgiveness and mean it and try to change our ways. But God is #1. Second is my AWESOME family God has blessed me with. I have a beautiful wife, who has a heart of gold. She is a wonderful mother to our children (and me.) Just joking...ok, not really. LOL! She is great! I have 2 FANTASTIC children. 1 sweet and gorgeous baby girl, who is 1 year old and 1 very handsome and well mannered son, who is 8 years old. I love my family with all of my life! I am a musician, so naturally next would usually be playing music, right? Wrong. Well, it was for a long time. I reprioritized things in my life the way they need to be. But, next would be the business/leadership training classes I am in. It is where my heart is as for as my carrer. Then would be music! I love music. I play a few instruments and try to sing. My favorite instrument to play is bass guitar. I have been playing music for about 15 years now. I play by ear. I am just now learning to read music. I started out like many musicians/artists did, in the church. I played there for a while or actually until I started hanging out with the wrong crowd. I started playing the bass in a secular alternative rock band. We mainly played at parties and a few clubs aroung town. I quit that band...for many reason (untold). After quiting that band, I found myself crawling back to God in horrible shape in many ways (untold as well.) I clean up and out and began to try and "do right". I was made to go to church growing up, so I knew what I was supposed to be doing as well as what I wasn't supposed to be doing. I struggled along for awhile. I eventually found some new friends. Which was a really good thing. They were musicians too. So we started a Christian Rock band. We called ourselves Beyond Reason. This name was a small explaination of how it was(beyond all reason) to me how Jesus died for us. So, long story made short on this, is the same as many other bands. We started out doing what we were supposed to be doing playing at churches, youth functions, local and out of town shows. We started recording at TM Century in Dallas, Tx. Things were going great. Money was getting slim. NonChristian venues noticed the style and sound of our music and liked it. So, of course they waved $$$ in front of our face. And we took it like a dumby. That was the start of the end of Beyond Reason. From then we slowly started playing places that a "Christian band" shouldn't be in. Things started going down the drain. We all started getting busy in our lives with family and work as well. Needless to say, Beyond Reason is no more. So after about a year of growing up, I returned to my senses that had been numbed by me ignoring the Holy Spirit nudging me to repent and make that final desicion for the rest of my life. Not just for a few months or a year. But a life time commitment to a relationship with Jesus. So I did that. Just like the prodigal son. I am so happy God forgives us. I must keep my focus on Him and everything else has a way of coming together. My family and I are active members in a local baptist church. I prefer to call it bapticostal myself. We like to get our praise on. I am now playing bass for the churches youth band (Common Place.) I really enjoy plaing with them. They are great musicains and singers and the music is fantastic, fun to play and most importantly annointed. Ok, I'm tired of typing. Wanna know more? Ask me? So this is me. Mole
