Today is the best day of my life! I do not always succeed in living up to this ideal, but it certainly sets a tone for meaningful living. And my life has certainly been both enjoyable and meaningful.

My professional experience includes church ministry, residence hall deanship, undergraduate and graduate level teaching, and educational administration.
