I grew up in Michigan, my family owned a construction business. While growing up I attended Dutton Christian School for Kindergarten to ninth grade, then attended Covenant Christian High School for grades 10-12. I graduated from Calvin College in 1978 with a double major in History and English. I earned my Masters of Science degree from Northern Arizona University in 1985. At that time my family and I were living in Rehoboth, New Mexico. I taught at Rehoboth Christian School for several years before coming to Lynden.
I believe that every square inch of this creation is the Lord's. We need to live, teach, and learn with that in mind.
