Hello Internet World – my name is Patrick C. Marks (emphasis on the “C”, as in “average”) and this is the official “About Me” page for my blog.
Isn’t this exciting???
The basics are…really basic. I’m a husband, father, teacher, pastor, writer, musician and avid movie goer. I am also…Bald…
I have a crooked back (had to wear a back brace when I was a kid making me the ultimate geek with a piece of plastic and aluminum that made me look like a cyborg).
I dye my goatee so I don’t look like I have one foot in the grave.
I would do much better if I actually USED the gym membership I pay for.
Seriously – I am married to Melissa and next to knowing God that’s the best thing going for me. I was a single parent with 3 kids for nearly 4 years when I met and married Melissa and together we have two more kids. For those of you that were not math majors that means we have 5 kids in various states of maturity (or, more accurately, immaturity)
On May 21st, 2003 I was made an Honorary United States Marine. No kidding… I’ve got the certificate on my office wall and everything.
I DID teach general science and high school Biology but now I’m the full time Pastor of FourteenSix Christian Church (www.146church.com).
I live in Phoenix but I’m 1/2 Canadian (you guess which is the better half). I am the author of www.understanding-creationism.com which is a website devoted to the scientific reasons we can know that only God could have created the universe. I’ve also written…
“The Far Frigid North” (Kindle price just .99, http://amzn.to/t0TCeA) A hilarious short tale.
