Tracy and I have been part of the Highland Oaks family since 1989, the year we were married. God has blessed us with four wonderful children and a son-in-law. Our oldest daughter Erin is married to Stephen Parker. Erin graduated from John Brown University in Dec. 2014 and married Stephen in March of 2015. Elizabeth will graduate from Harding in May of 2015 and Brenna started her college experience at Auburn University in June of 2015. That leaves Reese all by himself at home with mom and dad as he has started his freshman year at Rockwall H.S. in August of 2015.
Tracy and I started dating after she graduated from TWU and I graduated from Stephen F. Austin. It took all of three dates for us to realize that God intended for us to spend our lives together. We have been blessed by the lifelong relationships we have built at our Highland Oaks family and we feel honored to be asked to serve in the role of shepherd. I feel that God has asked Tracy and I to step up and be more than we ever thought we would be. We are excited to see where the Spirit leads us and our Highland Oaks family.
We have spent most of our time as a family over the years attending the kids choir concerts, musicals, volleyball matches, and swim meets. And we have loved every minute of it. Brenna and Reese are still active in their sports and we love attending. I am a big sports fan, especially basketball, in my free time and Tracy is an avid reader as well as a sports fan.
