BIOGRAPHICAL STATEMENT

Having been raised in a Christian home and having raised my children in a Christian home, I continue to explore with my wife of 40 years, Carol, the challenges that living on this planet presents.   How to pass on the search for a better understanding of the physical, spiritual and psychological aspects of our being to the nimble minds of our undergraduate and graduate college students continues to energize my existence.

Currently, I seek to understand mind/body/spiritual connections; specifically, how does our God designed body physically register emotional and spiritual bonds?   Though there isn't enough time in the day to look for these answers, I also try to cram in guitar and Spanish lessons as well with at least one or two yearly international adventures thrown in.
