So, who is Doug?
I'm a follower of Jesus Christ, who died to save the world from sin. I find myself more in awe of His grace and the wonder and majesty of God every day.
I'm blessed to be married to Ann, who is much more amazing than words can ever tell.
I'm the father of Olivia, Angela, and Steven. Sometimes, I'm glad I've only got 3. Other days, I wonder why we have so few.
I am the Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Monticello, Arkansas. We're a group of people that are trying to honor our heritage as a Baptist church while seeking our future as a part of God's Kingdom.
I am honored that you've read this far. Hopefully you'll find somethings in this blog worth considering, and feel free to comment. I alternate between moderated and not-moderated simply because of spam comments. So, comment away. This is my blog, though, and while your views are your own, I'm responsible for what people read here, so if it gets profane or unnecessarily offensive and rude, I'll delete it. Blogger and Wordpress both allow free blogs, so if you really want to spew, go get your own blog in your own name.
I don't blog every day. My biggest responsibility is to my wife, then my children. Then I'm responsible to teach and lead the church I pastor. Beyond that, I blog to supplement my church leadership and to help myself grow through expressing thoughts. I also occasionally blog book reviews for books I get for free. Those reviews are clearly marked. I don't derive any income from blogging at the present time, and doubt I ever will, though you can subscribe to this blog for your Amazon Kindle. If you do, and don't feel like you're getting your money's worth, let me know!
Other things about me? I'm still thinking about running for President in 2012, but I don't know if I can take enough vacation time.
Why do an "About me" now? Because I just realized my template had an "About" shortcut that went nowhere. So, I thought it would be good to give it a place to point.
Feel free to contact me through this blog if you have any questions! (hit the "contact tab" and take the extra spaces out of the email address!)
