About David

Britni and I met while at Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas. I graduated with a degree in Youth and Family Ministry with a Minor in Electronic Media Production. Britni received her degree in Marketing. We were married after we graduated and began our married life in Tennessee.

We have two children we love dearly! They teach us to slow down and enjoy the little things. We are reminded every day that God incrusted us with their precious souls and our choices have eternal ramifications!

What hobbies/activities do you enjoy?

Photography, Disc Golf, audiobooks, woodworking, board games, and drinking a cold cream soda while reading in a hammock.

What excites you most about Hardin Valley?

The people! You will not find a more welcoming and joyful group of people. Reading God’s word is vital to developing into who want’s you to be. Connection with a spiritual community is vital for running the race. I love that Hardin Valley has a love for God’s word and community.

What’s a good book/movie that has touched your life or influenced your faith? 

The Road Back to You: An Enneagram Journey to Self-Discovery.
I cannot describe how much this book has helped me understand and love the way God made me. The enneagram is something I can talk about for hours!

Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster. 

Spiritual Disciplines keep me grounded and help me feel closer to God!

Please share a favorite scripture with us. 

“By this is love perfected with us, so that we may have confidence for the day of judgment, because as he is so also are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. 19 We love because he first loved us.” – 1 John 4:17-19
