Favorite Verse - Acts 9:6, "And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do." In this verse, you find the conversion of Saul on the road to Damascus. He asks a question that is a challenge for each of us, "Lord, what wilt thou have me to do?” He recognizes Who is in charge and submits to His will.
Favorite Books - Bible, of course. It does provide answers to the greatest questions of life. Who am I? Where did I come from? Where am I going? I also love history and general books to help in any area of life. Some authors I enjoy reading are Stephen Ambrose, David McCullough, John Maxwell, among others. One of my favorite books would be Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, the story of Louis Zamperini.
