As a kid growing up, and even today, I was, still am enamored with people’s stories. I love to hear how they got to where they are. I love to know what made them make the choices they did and how come they are so successful in their business, so happy in their marriage, so sought after for their wisdom, so amazing as parents in raising great kids who are themselves incredible people, and what made them just an all around good person. I wanted to know what they knew so I could learn from their lives and seek to be all that God intended me to be.
