I surf and snowboard (way) too much. I ride for Currine & Co (http://currine.com)

Church planter in Orange County, California (http://robinwoodchurch.com) with incurable Pentecostal tendencies.

Went to school (way) too long. Fulbright Scholar at the Universität-Bonn in Germany.

Love writing. My blog (http://DavidHousholder.com) gets (way) more views than you think. Even more than you just thought...

First novel (http://BlackberryNovel.com) June 1, 2011 through Summerside Press.

Still trying to find that perfect business venture to compliment my church and writing work...

Since I'm from California, I say "way" --way too much...

Too much emphasis on “church going” and not enough emphasis on “loving your neighbor” is a common error most churches make…listen to an alternative view. from Road to Neighbor: Psalm 105
