Who is Patrick Ewing?

Well That’s a Bit of a Loaded Question!

Honestly, I don’t really know sometimes. I know a lot about me and I suppose that means I know who I am. But some days I really surprise myself!

First and foremost. I am a believer in the saving grace of Jesus Christ and the truth of the Bible. I could say I’m a Christian or more specifically a Baptist, but I think that’s secondary to my loyalty to Jesus and His Word. I’m human, I make mistakes, I’ve done things I regret, but that doesn’t change my belief in God.

I’m that guy who has a lot of interests. I find a lot of stuff interesting. The problem is, I generally don’t stick to any one interest for very long before jumping to something else. I’ve always imagined myself as a butterfly, fluttering from one flower to the next, never sticking around for very long. I don’t know what that says about me, nothing good I imagine.

My wife and I have been married for almost 15 years. We have lived in 3 different states, and have lived at over 12 different addresses. Our oldest son is 6 and has lived at 5 different addresses in his life time. This is not because we like moving! We hate it actually. We just can’t seem to be content, we have to always be moving forward.

My wife and I have 4 children, ages 6 and under. Yes, they are pretty close together and it’s super exhausting. Despite that, I love them all so much and wouldn’t trade them for anything.

My hobbies:
I love to tell stories, both in person and written form. I started writing stories in high school and haven’t stopped. Some day I’ll be published.
I play D&D. I love it and probably always will. More specifically, I love being the DM because I get to share my stories with other.
I love to make things. I enjoy woodworking, building shelves, furniture, etc. I make set pieces out of foam for games. Love making things.
No surprise, I love to read/listen to books! Currently I’m deep in the Brandon Sanderson rabbit hole.
Video games…Well I’ve loved video games since the first time my parents let me play our Atari. Online games. I love being able to play over the internet with my friends. It’s been such a great way for me to stay into contact with my friends from all over the country.
Board games. For those who haven’t heard, board games have really changed from when I was a kid. Absolutely love modern board games. Some of my favorites are Champions of Midgard, Tyrants of the Underdark, The Reckoners, Dead of Winter, Pandemic Legacy Season 2 and well, there are a lot of others.
Dodge ball – Okay, this isn’t a hobby because I don’t get to play much. However, I have been a youth pastor at several churches and my favorite activity was to play dodgeball. I don’t know why, but it’s exhilarating for me.
The Office. I include this as a hobby because I’ve watched the series through so many times that it’s basically a full time hobby at this point.

Random Facts:
I have a Pastoral Degree from Baptist Bible College.
I currently do not work in full time ministry at a church, but I have in the past, and would like to in the future.
I work as a Operations Manager for a Janitorial Company, I see a lot of…well you get it.
I’m a man who loves his family.
