I am a 56 year old Catholic male who has been married 33 1/2 years. My wife, Kim, and I have 11 children and 5 grandchildren. My family and I live in the great state of South Dakota right here in the Black Hills to be exact. We are 20 minutes south of Mt. Rushmore. I am a Veteran of the U.S. Army having served from 1990 to 2001, when I was hurt and medically discharged. My intentions are to write about various topics from personal to what is in the news. All of my blogs of course will be from my viewpoint, but all will have a teaching about what my church teaches. It is a Catholic point of view, but I believe that it covers in general Christians as well. You may agree or disagree with my blogs. This is what I expect and want. Comment, follow, spread the word and lets see how big of a conversation we can get going. God Bless you and your family.
