I was born in Paisley, Renfrewshire, Scotland.
I now live in Melbourne Australia with my wife Karen and my three children Duncan (23) Mitchell (21) and Ashleigh (17).
I am a recovered alcoholic. recovered through the Saving Grace of Jesus Christ and the power of the Holy Spirit living in and working through me.
My life mission is to help people suffering from addiction to discover personal relationship with Jesus Christ so they to can experience what it means to be truly sober.

You are not born with godly character; it is developed through getting to know God and his Word and through experience and testing. Romans 5:6 When we were utterly helpless, with no way of escape, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners who […]
Right at the crest, where Mount Olives begins its descent, the whole crowd of disciples burst into enthusiastic praise over all the mighty works they had witnessed: Blessed is he who comes, the king in God’s name! All’s well in heaven! Glory in the high places! Luke 19:38
Mark 8:17 Jesus overheard and said, “Don’t you see the point of all this? Don’t you get it at all?” Many of us for a long time failed to admit we had a problem. We closed our eyes to the truth. We did not want to face the […]
