When not typing on his laptop, engaging with social media, tending to his congregation, parenting, or being the kind of husband that helps with the laundry, you can usually find Tim drinking black coffee, hanging out at with his dog Delilah, running, cleaning out the litter box for Mimi the family ferret, or practicing blues guitar.
