I am a committed Christian who believes that God created people with a free will to make their own decisions regarding what they choose to believe. I recognize that our society was founded by looking to God for wisdom and guidance, which is why we created the greatest Republic the world has ever seen. I will fight those who want to take God out of America’s public square. I have been on several mission trips (Philippines, Mexico), was a board member of my church, and have visited the Holy Land twice in the last two years.
