Howdy. I'm Matt Todd. My wife and I have four kids and a dog,. I'm passionate about orphan care. I'm a die-hard fan of the Evansville Aces, the Indiana Hoosiers, and Star Wars. I'm trying to live life by the Todd family motto: "It behooves us to live!"

Great to be Back Home

I used to make my dad play this song every time we pulled up into the driveway after a long vacation. Couldn’t help but sing it when we got home last night. Don’t get me wrong. It was a great trip. Yesterday’s drive was far too long, however.

And fifteen years ago, I donned the cap and gown and did all I could not to actually march to the tune of Pomp & Circumstance.

I like to say that during the early 80s, I kind of lived under a rock when it came to popular music. After you watch one of the more popular videos from my Senior year, you’ll see why I decided to climb back under that rock and spend my time listening to the likes of Rich Mullins, Tchaikovsky, Aaron Copland, and Simon & Garfunkel.
