going to church and worshiping God each and every Sunday no matter where I am.
hunting & fishing.
target practicing or clay pigeon shooting with my sons.
spending time at our cabin in Prescott with my wife.
watching TV – I do not watch that much TV but I do enjoy watching some sports if my team is playing and World Series or Super Bowls or College bowl games, space movies like Star Trek.
movies – most guy flicks – it’s a guy thing. Ooops! And some girl flicks with my wife. All Christian centered movies i.e. Facing the Giants, Fire Proof, Courageous, etc.
Learning to fly RC airplanes.
