but not the singer Rick James. If you're looking for him, maybe google "superfreak." I live a more quiet life than the singer. My wife, Katie, and I work for Cru, a campus ministry. I serve as publisher of Cru Press, write and speak and whatnot.

Katie and I have three amazing kids, all grown, Avery, Whitney and Will and we live in the cozy house to the left. My wife, Katie, is better than me—personally, spiritually, intellectually, creatively ... just all around better. Oh, and a better writer, her stuff is at northhillsdrive.com
