When he’s at home, he’s blessed to spend time with his wife, Mary, their three children, and eight grandchildren. If Morgan has a fishing pole in his hand, showing one of the grandchildren how to fish, it is a great day!

He has also launched the Virtual Recording platform, and many other strategies and techniques for Audio Bible recordings to be produced more efficiently than ever before.
