Background information: I was born and raised in sunny California. The two places I spent the majority of time were Fresno (my growing up years) and Sacramento (the latter years). I have one older sister, Sherry, who is an avid blogger and writer. My parents moved out to Sioux Falls from California in 2009 to be closer to their only grandchildren. Jenny's family, as well as our extended family, still lives out in California. I am a "second career" pastor. I used to work in the construction field... from hands on to management. I loved working with people and administration. God is good and has helped us create a home and family at Hillcrest... we couldn't be happier.
