I have a podcast here that I did with John Kremer, the marketing guru. He invited me to share unusual places to sell books. Take a listen and hit those streets running:


It is late in the evening. It is Thanksgiving Eve. I am sitting here wondering what I have to be thankful for.

Let me list some:

  • I am married to a wonderful wife who cares for me, and knows me well enough to know when I am hurting. She is always there for me, and never doubts me.
  • I have three children that I sometimes feel I don’t deserve. That are all successful in their fields, and are Christian. They married Christian spouses as well. They constantly lift me up when I am down, and always have me back when I need them.
  • I have seven beautiful grandchildren, I could tell you about each and everyone of them, but I would be up for hours. They are all Christians, and are leaders in their schools.
  • My mother is still alive at the age of 95. She still smiles and tells me she loves me. She needs help each day and is a wheel chair, but I don’t flinch at the opportunity to help her since she helped me everyday when I was little.
  • Some people complain about their in-laws, but I have the most wonderful in-laws a person could ask for. We have such a great time every year when we gather for Thanksgiving. I look forward to  tomorrow when we will laugh, eat, and share stories we need to do to catch up.

Thanksgiving is being thankful for the things we have, not the things we want.


You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
