Four Fun Bits About Me

A few months ago, I filled out an application that wanted to get to know me a bit more. I thought the questions were interesting and worth sharing. I’ve included my answers too. Feel free to share your answers in the comments.

In one or two sentences, what is your favorite “secular” movie and why?

I’ve always had a fascination with problem solving, machines, and learning. The movie “War Games” has elements of all three while teaching an important moral lesson about the futility of war.

Complete this sentence: “I think others would describe me as…”

I think others would describe me as driven. I can have a pretty intense focus. (Sometimes, I’ve rightfully been called a “bulldog”.) While being driven can mean passionate, it can also mean restless. I’ve also been told I’m “deep”.

In one or two sentences, what is your favorite “Christian” book (besides the Bible) and why?

My favorite “Christian” book is “The Great Divorce” by C. S. Lewis. No book has ever painted a clearer picture of Heaven and Hell for me.

A poem about yourself from an eight-year-old perspective instead?

Still lives with K’nex in the house
My wife is prettier than a mouse
I love to play about and hop
I’m often found on my laptop
