About – Just a Footman

““If you have run with the footmen, and they have wearied you,
Then how can you contend with horses?
And if in the land of peace,In which you trusted, they wearied you,
Then how will you do in the floodplain of the Jordan? “
 (Jeremiah 12:5,6)

Family:  My wife Lynn and I have been married for over 30 years and have raised seven children. We currently have 6 grandchildren. Obviously my adult life that has pretty much been revolved around kids in one way.  I guess before becoming an adult, my life revolved around me so, pretty much my entire life has revolved around children. Although Lynn and I are looking forward to getting know each other without children in the house, I think being around kids it is an addiction and I don’t think grandchildren will fill the quota.

Career:  I spent 12 years in the United States Navy, “poking holes in the ocean” on submarines.  Currently, I design electrical and communications systems for military bases throughout the United States.

Passions: My biggest passion is coaching and mentoring young men.  Currently, my coaching experiences involve middle and high school boys soccer players. You can check out my ramblings about young men, sports, coaching, and “Pressing On” over at my other blog “Pressing Toward the Goal

  1. I enjoyed reading some of your posts. . . . I ran in a half marathon a couple of years ago. It’s a lot of work! But also rewarding. 🙂 I love your running/spiritual theme. Blessings on your blog.
