If you were to open my heart and look in, you would see three main things:

Family: I've been married to the wonderful Lisa Kody for over 32 years. We have four incredible children: Abby, Luke, David and Anna. I'm also learning to be a father-in-law to Noemi and Hannah. I am the richest man in the world.

Missions: Ever since I was a teenager, I have been drawn to other countries, cultures, and peoples. Every time I arrive in another country, I feel like a child on Christmas morning. Foreign missions is an undying flame burning in my soul.

Teaching: While I was involved in our local church's Daily Teaching program, I learned a love for the scriptures, especially the foundational principles of the Bible. As Scottish missionary Eric Liddle said, "When I run, I feel His pleasure." In the same way I feel His joy as I teach.

Today, I am involved in my family's lives and have the opportunity to travel about 20 times a year, teaching mostly on the Father Heart of God.
