Ten years ago our family had a life-changing encounter with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, which compelled us to lay down a successful business and focus on full-time ministry. We have seen first-hand the results of the catastrophic moral decline in our nation. Our God-given, blood-bought, and constitutionally guaranteed rights to “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” are being trampled by the very government that is sworn to protect them.
We are a constitutional republic, and our God-given rights are not up for debate. It is very simple: The right to life is guaranteed! The right to bear arms shall not be infringed! There are many in our State House who want to discard our rights, as evidenced by the Legislature’s recent failure to uphold the constitutional right to life for over 5,000 preborn babies who will be murdered this year in Oklahoma.
We must never forget that the State is not God! God will never answer to the State. Friends, we need bold state leaders who will fight and reject bad legislation that tears our families apart. That is why I am running to be your next State Representative from House District 17.
I was born right here in McAlester and raised on a ranch. I received a Bachelor’s in Industrial Technology from Southeastern Oklahoma State University, and subsequently began work on a Master’s in Business Management. I have been married to Renee, my best friend and high school sweetheart, for twenty-four years. McKenna, our amazing and talented fifteen-year-old daughter, shares our love for God and country.
