"My ministry is God's ministry, and it is the product of the love of my life, Jesus Christ. I am grateful for those in my life who hold me accountable to being with Him. Daily prayer and daily time in God's Word are staples in my spiritual diet. And one of my heroes in the faith is E. Stanley Jones, who said: 'When I think of goodness, I do not add virtue to virtue: I think of Jesus of Nazareth. When I think of God, I do not go through my imagination: I go through His image. 'He is the express image of God's person.' And if God is Christlike, I could think of nothing higher. If God isn't Christlike, I would lose interest in Him and turn my love and loyalty to Christ alone...' It is ALL about Jesus."
