What would your loved ones say their favorite thing about you is?
My height, it makes it easier to change lightbulb or fetch that hard-to-reach dish out of the top cabinet!
What was the last book you read?
The last book I read was Walking With Sam, by Andrew McCarthy.
When you are not at work, you are?
When I am not at work, you can find at my kids events; soccer games, dance recitals, musicals, choral concerts, golfing, playing baseball, or reading.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve received?
The best piece of advice I have received is when Pam and I were newly married we were both working, but our goal was for her to stay home with our children once we started a family. Someone suggested that we get used to living only on my income so that when hers went away, we wouldn’t have to make a significant adjustment in our spending. This allowed her the freedom to leave her job when our first child arrived without worrying about the financial implications of that. We have seen many families struggle with that decision because of finances, so we’re grateful for wisdom that was shared with us.
