I grew up in Benton, IL. I married my wife, Bethany (Johnston), on August 18, 2007 before my second tour to Iraq while I was in the Army. Bethany also grew up in Benton, IL and is currently a full-time mom and part-time worker for a local blind company. Bethany loves playing the piano and ministering to high school/college ladies. Our children are Tinley (9), Lexi (6) and Silas (almost 2). All three of our kids love everything Disney, playing sports and swimming.
“Cras nulla diam, euismod id quam nec, faucibus pellentesque quam. Sed sed justo placerat, vestibulum erat ut, volutpat orci. Maecenas a tortor facilisis, malesuada ante ut.”
