1. Where did you grow up?

I grew up on farms surrounding Madison, Indiana, the town where I have lived nearly all my life and where we continue to live.

2. What is your favorite Bible verse, book or story? Why?

Hebrews 13:5 where God promises, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

There have been so many times when I have depended upon that promise to help me get through challenges in my life.

3. What is your favorite movie? Why?

“Twelve Angry Men.”

That movie was shot almost entirely in one room and consisted primarily of dialogue between the men who made up a jury, but the drama and story line is incredible due to skilled writing and an excellent cast.

4. Who are three of the people you admire?

Billy Graham, Ronald Reagan and my father.

5. What is one little known fact about yourself?

Despite my public speaking ministries, I am an introvert and tend to blend into the wallpaper when I finish speaking.
