I was born in Nashville, Tennessee, on February 5, 1969, and lived there until November 1980 when I moved to Mustang, Oklahoma following my parents' divorce. I count Mustang as my home. I lived there pretty much from then until I got back from my mission.

I served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to the Guatemala Guatemala City North Mission from March of 1988 to April of 1990. Those two years truly changed my life and who I am. Still not a day goes by that I don't think back to Guatemala. While there, I was lucky enough to not only learn Spanish, but also to serve in the Polochic region with the indians and learn the K'ekchi' dialect.

After my mission, I graduated from Ricks College (now Brigham Young University-Idaho). While here, I met my wife, Lori, in the women's showers in the Hart building (it's not what you were thinking--we were on the 4:00 am custodial crew!) We married April 24, 1992, and we have four wonderful kids, John, Natalie, Andrew, and Emma.

From Ricks, I graduated from BYU in Provo with a BA in English, and later a MA in the Theory and Practice of Writing from Utah State University. From there I had a hard time trying to figure out where to go for my Ph.D. I had a couple of really tempting scholarship offers, but I just couldn't get excited about them. ANOTHER degree in English?!? What was I going to learn? I already knew how to read a book and write a paper about it, so I took a semester off. At that time I had a couple of friends (shout-out to Rulon and Platte!) who were completing double Master's degrees in English and Instructional Technology. They figured since I was interested in what makes good teaching and I had done work with designing and developing online courses and online course delivery systems I would be a good fit in Instructional Technology. I resisted as long as I could . . .

Little did I know when I started studying Instructional Technology at Utah State University that it was one of the top programs in the world, nor that I would study under a legend in the field like David Merrill. I've been truly blessed.

Other than that, I consider my life a work in progess. I'll get back to you when the final chapter is written . . .

  8. UFabet is one of the leading sports book in Thailand. This book is owned by a famous entrepreneur, Thong Supham. The largest online bookmaker in Thailand has also been named by FIFA Betting as the official bookmaker for the forthcoming European and Asian Football tournaments. It is one of the two bookmakers in Thailand that are licensed by FIFA. This means that all of Thailand's international fixtures will be listed on the site including the fixtures for the 2021 World Cup.

    When it comes to ufabet betting there are a number of reasons for why you should consider this as your next betting option. The site offers excellent customer service with a live chat feature that allows you to speak to one of their expert sports gamblers if you have any problems or queries. Another good thing about ufabet is that you can win cash with a max of 50% of your deposit. This is a good deal, as you will then be able to get a good chunk of change back from the game. This is much better than other bookmakers that only payout with regards to the final bet that was made.

    ufabet also allows customers to play on the following online casinos which are found in partnership with ufabet: Bwin Poker, Titan gaming, Coral Casino, Playtech gaming and Unite Gaming. These online casinos are some of the best in the world and therefore you can be sure that you will not experience any problems when it comes to accessing them. In addition to these websites you can also enjoy a whole lot of other bonuses and promotions when you play at these online casinos.

    The website allows customers to place wagers on a variety of sports and events with the aim of winning cash. There are a few different ways to play with the different sportsbooks in order to win money. You can play with the bookmaker on their site or wager through another payment method such as PayPal and others. The latter option is preferred by a lot of people as they are assured that they won't lose anything through the transactions involved.
