What is your favorite way to spend a weekend?
Spending time with my wife and going to church to worship and praise God.

Which Bible story has grown your faith the most?
The story of the shepherds at Christ’s birth. Their job was considered the lowest position possible, but God chose them to be told by the Angel of Jesus’s birth. They immediately left and went to where Jesus was, and when they saw Him, they spread the word concerning Jesus to everyone and returned praising God for all they had heard and seen. God also used the shepherd boy David to become Israel’s greatest king. God uses the ordinary to do the extraordinary.
