When the author is not engaged in ministry  (bible study, prayer gatherings, recovery meetings, visiting local churches, or guest-speaking from the pulpit or classroom), he can be found cooking up a storm in the kitchen, walking 18 holes on the nearest golf course, or playing a mean game of cards, all while spending time with close friends and family. He remains ever grateful for the selfless men and women who helped him along the journey to recovery and salvation.​
