Our social reality is constructed by our experiences in life. In order to truly understand another person you must come to understand their reality. So that you can begin to know me better, I offer this:
In December 2013 I will complete an MA in Communication and Leadership Studies from Gonzaga University with a certificate in Servant-Leadership. I hold a graduate certificate in Conflict Resolution and a BA in Speech Communication (Interpersonal Communication; Conflict Resolution), with a minor in Peace & Conflict Studies (Global Justice Issues), both from the University of Utah.
I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
I believe in personal Freedom and constitutionally limited government. Federalism is one of the great gifts of the Founders.
I’m a firm believer in the U.S. Constitution and its interpretation from the Original Meaning, being what a reasonable person living at the time of ratification would have understood it to mean.
I am dedicated to my family and to making sure that their success is part of my success in life.
I invite you to look around my blog and see what I’m all about. I ask you to not put me into a box. When you read something and have a reaction, ask yourself why you are reacting that way. This will help you understand yourself better and help us better understand one another.
I hope you enjoy your time here and I welcome your additions to My Constructed Reality.
