Biographical Info:
Christian, husband of 14 years to my wife Carrie, Father of 6 children (Ruth, Ezra, Esther, Solomon, Eve and Naomi). We attend Cities Church in St. Paul. I have 20 employees and God has blessed our business abundantly. We live in Cottage Grove on Grey Cloud Island on the Mississippi River. I teach a Bible Study every 2 weeks and have a great desire to evangelize at the Capitol. We, as a family, live our lives to love and serve.
I am running to serve and sacrifice as Jesus did for us. Our State and Capitol need Biblical leadership and we have an amazing opportunity to pass Pro Life legislation this following year. School Choice needs to be passed so parents can opt out of paying for public school if they don't agree with what is being taught to their children. I want to be a strong voice at the Capitol for Biblical Family Values.
