About Me

Aug 16, 2016 - 3 comments

I was born and raised on the banks of the Tombigbee River in the Black Belt region of Alabama, an area known for its rich black soil. The region was home to the largest cotton plantations in the state, many of them still standing and in states of disrepair. I still call the region home. I am the son of a factory laborer and a public schoolteacher. I hold two degrees: one in office administration and one in medical assisting technology. I have worked in medical assisting in the past. I now work at a call center as a medical claims analyst.

I strive to always follow Christ and I was baptized into the body of Christ in 2009. I now teach Sunday school to senior adults and I'm a member of the hospitality ministry, where I serve the church by providing refreshments and meals at special events. I love to cook southern cuisine and sweet treats and read southern lit. I also love to sit on the front porch swing in the evening, as I am entertained by the sound of crickets singing and the sight of lightning bugs floating on a breeze. Life is good and I'm so thankful for my blessings.

Hi there!
Your description of sitting on your porch at night listening to the night sounds, sounds wonderful. I use to do that in Florida and Kentucky, it is so relaxing. LOL, I use to try to catch the lightening bugs, they are fascinating.

I, too, took a Medical Assisting training program, it was a year long and then had the internship. Man, that was ages ago, if I wanted to be one now, I would have to take the course all over again. Sadly, they have not even heard of them here in New Zealand. If I am blessed enough to move back to the states, I am seriously thinking of taking the program again.

I bet you are a good Sunday school teacher and that the class really likes you. I go to a non-denominational church here, it is huge, they have all kinds of "Church" for the kiddos during our service, I would say they have 4 or 5 going in different class rooms.

Take care and God bless.
