About the Author
I am passionate about my relationships- my wife, kids, extended family and friends! I'm far from perfect, but I have a personal relationship with Jesus who offers me grace and helps me grow! For several years I served as a Family Minister, and I can personally testify, for myself and others I cared for, that when couples invest in each other, and go the extra mile to keep their relationship fresh and exciting, it pays off! The flip side is true too- when couples take the lazy approach, then their relationships get boring, listless and even open the door for problems that could devastate their relationship. Don't let that happen! Keep it exciting, passionate and alive! I hope this resource is one tool to help you do that! I love being a part of a team of people that brings hope to seniors and their family members, by providing a way for them to stay in their own home in a safe and affordable way! I love to laugh, listen to every kind of music available (yes, my iTunes library is my addiction- 6,000 songs strong...) Just as important, I want to help make my community, my state, my country and my world a better place each day, simply by doing good things and being a positive impact. OK, that's my summary!
