Person Responsible for Cultivating Your Love of the Outdoors:
God gave me the love of enjoying His creation. But, He also gave me the opportunity of having 4 men to share it with. Jimmy Houston. A TV personality showed me how to enjoy not only the fishing, but taking the time to look at the beauty of the day. He was not afraid to show thanks to his family, but show his thanks to GOD. Two friends Mike Erickson, and Arnie Melby . Friends to share the ups and downs of not only the hunting and fishing, but sharing life together. And my son, Matthew. When I wanted to hang the guns and poles, God gave me a son. To look at our creators creation from a young person view. The desire burns on. (31 years later)
 
 
Favorite Scripture:
John 8:12 I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the Light of Life.
 
Any Spiritual Lessons you have Learned in the Outdoors:
The GOD I serve is an AWESOME GOD. I have seen sin hardened men, melt in saying the name of Jesus. Men holding the guilt of some past incident, come away with relief and a sense of peace coming over them after professing. It never ceases to amaze me, when men think they are the only ones having a problem. GOD can fix what needs to be fixed. GOD works in His on time. You just never know.
