How do you like to spend your free time?
I spend most of my free time with my family – following our kids in their activities. We love family cookouts, movie nights and hiking at different parks. I also root for the Cubs and develop Bible studies for a class I teach.

We are active members of our church, and we support several missionaries through CRU. We have been active in supporting Pekin band and athletics as well as PJXC (Pekin Junior Cross Country).
