For the last 18 years I have served the church as a pastor, and I have found that the number one area that most people struggle with is in the area of financial problems; either in personal management issues related to daily living, or because of the lack of planning for future issues. I have headed the call to move into this area with Thrivent as an Associate Representative because it equips me with the tools to meet the areas that people are struggling with. I want to help… I have shared 41 years with the love of my life Linda and together we have five children, four of whom are married and have given us thirteen wonderful Grandchildren! We still have a teenager at home who we adopted sixteen years ago when he was only two months old. Our family loves to spend time together at our family home on Rush Lake doing everything that living on a lake has to offer.
