Living most of my life in Arkansas, I was blessed to grow up in the small town of Arkadelphia with devoted parents, three brothers, and a neighborhood full of friends. I went onto Henderson State University earning my business degree in 1982. Soon after graduation, I began my career with State Farm Insurance in Little Rock. My wife, Kinsey, and I were married in 1986, and our family made several moves during my years with State Farm. Our move to Hot Springs in 2002 gave us the opportunity to be closer to family. We will soon have an empty nest from a busy life with three children. But for many years, our five-bedroom home was opened to a host of school friends, to many family gatherings, as well as, more than 20 foster children over a 14 year span…. Read More….

In June of 2015, I retired early after 30 years with State Farm. The summer following my retirement, caring for my elderly parents in Arkadelphia was needed due to several health issues and emergency situations. Facing the possibility of moving my parents to Hot Springs, I visited a number of assisted living and nursing care facilities. I soon found myself gravitating towards the nursing care field as a new profession. At the same time, my brother-in-law, Koy Butler, who was opening his 3rd House of Three in Little Rock, encouraged me to consider opening a home in Hot Springs. Kinsey and I began to consider the opportunity…..

We both knew the Lord had gifted our hearts to serve those in need. I had always admired Koy’s heart of service in the everyday caring of seniors. The prospect of opening a House of Three in our home, where we had raised our children, was exciting. I spent time within the Little Rock House of Three homes working alongside the caregivers and shadowing Koy. I completed the Schmieding Home Caregiver Training, we made the necessary remodeling changes, and then our family moved just a couple of miles away. On February 1, 2016, we welcomed our first resident. Within two weeks, we had no vacancies, and our House of Three family was complete. Loving and caring for our residents and getting to know their families is incredibly rewarding.

I am very proud of the team of devoted caregivers who provide the pampering care to our residents. Their joy, expertise, and nurturing spirits serve our residents and families well. Together, we have made the Hot Springs House of Three a comfortable home for our Three we have come to love. We invite you to explore how we may serve your loved one!
