He also has taken classes at a seminary. He wrote a book called "The Historia" which you can buy on He was a hockey player and played college hockey at Bethel. His wife is a lawyer worked at a big law firm in Minneapolis. Cool! Hey, guess what. I am a lawyer too!! This will be my 14th year teaching as I practiced law for over 15 years.

Their daughter is very funny and cute and I often show the class pictures of her. __________My son Joe graduated from Moorhead State. He, like his brothers was a good athlete and loved sports. He also is a great singer and performer and was Danny Zuko in Grease, Gaston in Beauty and the Beast, and Curly in Oklahoma--all in WBL high school.
