In loving memory of my dad, Elmer L. Johnson

Besides Jesus Christ, my dad made more of an impact on my life than any other man I have ever known. I could never list all the ways that dad influenced my life, but please allow me to share some with you here.

Dad influenced me to:
  • love the Lord and faithfully serve him with my time, talent, and finances.
  • make the Bible the authoritative guide for all of my beliefs and actions.
  • love my wife as Christ loves the church.
  • always be available for my children, caring for and loving them.
  • point people to Jesus on this journey from earth to glory.
  • love God’s creation.
I owe a lot to my dad’s influence, and I thank God for giving me the honor to be his son.
