About Me


My wife Stephanie & I met in January of 2000 while attending SBU. As we got to know each other we started dating. In January 2002, I purposed to Stephanie asking her to spend the rest of her life with me. She said yes and the story begins.

August 10th, 2002, we were married in font of a large gathering of family, friends, and church members at First Baptist Church in Warrensburg, MO. For our Honeymoon we were blessed to go on a seven day cruise to Cozumel, Grand Cayman Island and Ocho Rios Jamaica.

On March 22, 2004 we became parents to our first child named Josiah. When Josiah was a baby, he was very passive and seemed to pick things up pretty quickly.

On May 13, 2007 Mothers Day, we became parents again, to another boy who we named Jackson. Jackson is our miracle baby. Born with Morganella, and now dealing with random seizures Jackson has taught us how special each day really is.  Even though his health has kept us on our knees, we trust God has a plan and we desire to honor him in the good times and the bad times.

Our family currently calls St. Charles, MO home. Here, I serve as the Care Pastor at First Baptist Church Harvester.

God has been good to us, life hasn’t been easy over the past couple of years dealing with Jackson’s seizures, but God has definitely been faithful in times we were fearful. Together, Stephanie & I are trying to raise our boys in a Godly home, praying that one day, they would both have a relationship with the Lord like we do!

    Just wanted to let you know–I am so proud of you!!
    It’s truly a blessing to read your blog comments, both family stories, events, and pictures–but I am so blessed to read your scriptural devotions. You are truly a carbon copy of your grandfather!! He would be/or is definitely proud of you. I’m sure when he looks down from Heaven, he has a big smile on his face!

    Sometime at nite, when I’m feeling all alone, I have to read your blogs to feel connected to you. I miss you, Steph, and my grandsons, and just being a part of your lives.

    I also enjoyed your autobiography on the family page. It’s too bad on your list of ‘bad life events’ you had a parental divorce to have to deal with. (That certainly wasn’t the event I wanted us to have to face.) At times, it’s still hard for me to deal with.

    I love all of you so much!!

    P.S. Do you have any copies of that pic on your family page?? I would love that on my fireplace mantel!

    I am attempting to find a “Dan Gould” who was a friend of mine in Springfield, MO. He left his auto repair business under a call from God to enter the ministry. Could you be that person? Thanks, Richard H. Cox MD, PhD, DMin
