About Mark

I’m a middle-age guy who is married with 3 adult children and two grandchildren.  My parents live next door. The purpose of this blog is to reflect on life’s experiences while trying to align them to a Christian world view.

Having recently retired from 32 years working as a K-12 teacher and administrator, I now work part-time as an assistant pastor in our church and as a mentor/instructor at Capella University.

I enjoy camping and being with my family, playing with my granddaughters, sailing, hang gliding, biking, reading, being active in our local church, and playing guitar. I’ve written a book about teaching children to read, and I have a Ph.D. in Leadership.

    Thanks so much for sharing about your experience. I have to admit, you brought tears when describing your pain and the emotions Donna was feeling…
    God is good, all the time!

    Dear Mark, What an incredible description of your love for the sport of hang gliding, and your unfortunate description and events of a heart attack and the steps taken to make you well again! I can’t imagine being in the air, realizing something major is wrong, and trying to get down and obtain help immediately. What a frightening experience! We are so very thankful you are still with us, and we are so glad you are an important part of our lives and church family. I know your family and Jack also feel this way too! God is good!

    Hi Mark – wanted to let you know your hang glider once again slipped the surly bonds of earth. The Sport lifted me off the ground a few times under John’s Scooter Tow this past weekend. Flies beautifully. Looking forward to many hours of fun with this beautiful wing.
