He attributes his success in his field to his strong faith in God and the support of his family and investigative team members.
Dave's priorities differ greatly than those who investigate strictly with scientific interests. His goal is the spiritual well being of the individual or family, getting them through these life-altering events and back on the path away from the preternatural realms and he firmly believe's that the individual or family's strength and faith in God can bring an end to most hauntings and he believe's that there is more than just a patch of grass and a marker over our heads when we die and that when we die it is not an end, but a new beginning...
