For a few years I was an alter boy at St.Daniels Catholic church in Clarkston, Michigan which was better than sitting, kneeling and standing in a pew. Still at a young age I didn’t understand why we were forced to go to church every Sunday when obviously there was more fun things to do.
I joined the Air Force while I was still in Brandon High School and was on the Delayed Enlistment Program so when I graduated I could go to basic training at Lackland Air Force Base.
During the service I became closer to God and religion after I have had several close calls.
I am now a non-denominational minister. I originally became an ordained minister to marry friends and family. As soon as I was ordained I felt this was a very big responsibility and started doing research. Read a bunch of books and I’m still the same person as I was just more aware of the significance of being labeled as a minister.
I’m not just someone who can marry you but I can also be a friend, someone you can talk to or ask advice. When you need someone to lean or when you feel your faith is failing you, I can be there.
