Turner’s Halloween

Tags : 

Halloween on Preston Glen has always been one of the highlights of the year for the Turner family. We love the first cool winds to blow out of the north and the turning of the leaves. Hay bales and pumpkins line the back roads and streets.

Mandy and I love that we live on an active street with literally hundreds of trick or treaters dropping by.

What started as a few parents dropping by with a lawn chair to sit tight while their kids explored our cul-de-sac street turned into a full-blown street party with our church, Grace Bible fellowship, helping us supply water, cooked hotdogs, candy, and chips to around 500 kids and weary parents each Halloween night.

Mandy loves dressing up and ensures the family is themed. 🙂

Camping, Hiking, Fishing, Hunting… Outdoors.

A few great things about Texas are the diversity of the land and the weather. A few hours drive in any direction will change the trees, soils, elevation, and even the weather.

We have 4 seasons (although we kid about only have 2 weeks of Spring and Fall).

Todd Turner Resume

Tags : 


To obtain employment or partnership with an organization looking to grow their online and offline presence through more effective website and marketing strategies. Will consider full-time employment with a growing North Texas-based company that offers opportunity for expansion of responsibility and growth within the organization.

I consider myself a skilled and dedicated professional with twenty five+ years of computer work and business operations history. My experience spans a wide range of skill sets, and I have had a variety of roles in the development and maintenance of business systems, procedures, intranets, extranets, web-based applications, websites, and apps. I have serviced Dallas, Texas businesses and organizations as a consultant for 7 of the last 20 years.  I have spent over 10 years overseeing an International Ministries Communications Department (Web, Marketing, and Publishing). My flexible skill-sets allow me to develop or support systems on a variety of platforms. I am a strong team player and I am committed to the success of my clients through projects which deliver top-line growth and increased operating efficiencies.

I am a TEAM player in every sense of the word. I thrive of collaboration and working together to do great things.

Bottom line – I am a problem solver who flies high, flies low, and implements friendly, collaborative, and successful solutions.

Skill Set Overview:

With a wide skill set that ranges from technical skills to developing high level marketing strategies, I find myself wearing many hats within an organization. I am a team player in every way. In my last six positions I reported directly to the CEO or President of the company.

I have traveled internationally and can work with various people groups, cultures, and mind-sets to find common-ground solutions.


I spend a great deal of my free time with my family: Sporting events, hunting, fishing, camping, BBQing, and playing in the yard. Any spare time after that goes to reading books on Theology & Native American history.
