Have you ever just sat down and just thought about your most important things in your life? I haven’t put to much thought into it recently, so here is my late-night TV host top ten list of most important things in my life, in no special order.

Top 10 Most Important Things in My Life

1. Faith in God – One of the most important things in my life is my Faith in God, and all the things He has done for me.

2. Opportunity – Much like Ashton Kutcher said at the 2013 KCA, opportunity is hard work. With that, hard work brings opportunity. Over the last ten years of my life, I have been chasing down any kind of opportunity. Come to find out, the perfect opportunity was at home all along; blogging with Staci. So it is important to make opportunities for myself, which in turn equal hard work... but pay off in the long run.

3. Laughter – I don’t always like being laughed at but do enjoy laughing with someone. I believe when laughter is shared, it binds people together and increases happiness and intimacy. So, laugh a little, or a lot, and enjoy life. At least I try to.

4. My 5 Children – My children mean the world to me. I am so lucky to be able to have them in my life. Without my kiddos my life would probably be pretty boring. They fill my heart with joy and laughter. Simply put… I love my kids.

5. Sunsets – Sunsets are one of God’s gift to us as He brings each day to an end. I have seen some beautiful sunsets. Each one just grows in majesty as I view them every day. Staci and I share the same fascination with sunsets, so that makes it special when we get to catch one together.


6. Family – Most people think I am crazy when I tell them I have 5 kids. By the look on their faces, I guess they figure it must be a lot to have 5 kids. The thing is, that IS the reality of my family. There are seven of us. I married my high school sweetheart and we had 5 kids (plus an angel baby). I love the little family we have made.

7. Silence – Silence is definitely heaven sent. I soak it up whenever I get a chance and it is needed.

8. Technology –  You might think I am crazy to say this, but I couldn’t live without modern day technology. I am not talking about Facebook or Twitter, but rather my smartphone. I truly appreciate things like digital cameras, phones, videos, and other things that capture moments and keep us in touch with one another.

9. Freedom – This has to be one of most important things in my life. Mainly because without my freedom, well, I am just a nobody. I would not be able to like and do the things that make me happy as an individual. I am thankful for the ones that make it possible for my family and I not to have to worry about being harmed most of all.

10. A Loving Wife – God has definitely blessed me with a beautiful wife that takes care of all my needs and wants. She loves me unconditionally no matter what we goes on in our crazy life. I don’t want to imagine my life without her… because it would be one sad day and I am not ready for that.
