I am driven by the desire to benefit your marriage.
I have high ethical values coupled with an internal burning to take ownership and daily execute tasks contributing to projects worth doing, preferably with genuine friends to build communities and connect the world because we are all connected and everything happens for a reason. (my Strengths Finder 2.0 top five strengths are: Achiever, Belief, Connectedness, Relator, and Responsibility)
I draw from decades of reading, journaling, writing, discussion, prayer, devotion to Father God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit, and observing people in various settings including church, schools, seminars, workshops, clubs, national and international travel, and a wide variety of workplaces and business models where I have rubbed elbows with many layers of society from high school students to construction workers to vendors to professionals to consultants, to VP’s, President’s, and CEO’s.
I am a devoted husband. Marriage is one of the most life-impacting relationships we can have so I have invested significant amounts of energy into mine. An important concept I grasped early on is marriage does not begin when you meet your spouse, it begins when a person is young and realizes they will get married some day.
My devotion began in the sixth grade when I realized there was a girl out there for me and I would wait for her, so I did. As a result, in my mid-30’s I have been devoted to one woman, my wife, for over 20 years.
The most perceptive man I have ever known and who knew me very well said I am “blessed with one of the best marriages in the world.”
I am a father of two amazing kids who continually earn us compliments (discipline works!).
My goal is to benefit your marriage and thereby society and the world.
Improving your marriage is like developing the right lifestyle of diet and exercise, it’s challenging and worth the effort! Comedian Brad Stein said, “The truth hurts, that’s how you know it’s the truth!”
