Adrian and I go WAY back… like Northside Elementary, way back. I remember him always being so nice to me, as I was quiet, shy, and wanted to just blend in as much as possible. It’s been many years since I’ve seen him, but just this week we met for coffee to discuss the possibilities of him joining our little family of writers. We reminisced of much simpler days and times of our childhood, shared what we’ve been up to since then, and collectively realized that Ellis DownHome would be a good fit to share his wise perspectives and words. Here’s a little more about Adrian below. Help us welcome him!!
Adrian Cooper is a proud product of Waxahachie, Texas who is also a husband to beautiful wife, Marquita Cooper, father to four handsome boys, senior and founding pastor of Waxahachie Life Church, and the owner of Future Generations Christian Child Care Center.
