I grew up in a loving home with mom and dad, and 4 older siblings who all loved each other. We went to church every Sunday where I was highly active in the youth programs. When I was confirmed I was given a Bible verse, “My Confirmation Verse”.
As a 14 year old boy,I didn’t know how much thought the Pastor put into our Bible Passages. For all I knew he threw a dart at a board full of passages to see what we would each get. My verse, Matthew 5:16 “In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”
As a teen, I never paid much attention to these words. I knew what they were, I had to memorize them after all, but I didn’t grasp how deep they were routed into my soul. I’ve always gotten more joy from helping and giving, than from receiving. I did the best I could with the gifts and skills God gave me hoping to be a beacon, a light shining bright showing others my Love for Our Father. Over the years I’ve had many opportunities to lead.
After high school I joined the US Navy, and achieved the rank of Petty Officer 3rd Class, over seeing the work of up to 30 sailors. In college I was a active in my college’s technical theater department heading up set construction and strikes, managing the building as other productions rented out the space. In the summer I was a Camp Counselor at Camp Omega, a Christian Bible Camp near Faribault, Minnesota. Add to that 5 years as a part time Deputy with Ramsey County, several years working as a security officer and as an EMT throughout the Twin Cities area.
In 2003 my wife, Hollie, and I made the decision to open a company, Working On Life’s Fulfillment, Inc. (aka. WOLF Inc.) a residential care program for adults with developmental disabilities. Our goal? To help the individuals we care for achieve their Life’s Fulfillment, whatever that may be. Today it’s a family business, Hollie and our son Brady and I have made a commitment to care for these individuals and they have become part of our family.
There are many models out there that lay out “How to be an effective leader” and “How to get the most out of your team.” I will be the first to tell you that I have no clue how to be a leader. I never took classes on how to be a great leader or read books on motivating a team or anything like that. In my life, day by day, I look to these 18 words that guide me in all I do… “let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” Anyone that knows me, knows my heart, and sees me for who I am. I love life. I love my wife, my son, my family, Ohana.
Ohana is more than a fancy Hawaiian word for family, Ohana is loving and caring for each other, supporting and growing together, it is the glue that holds families together and becomes the social fabric for our extended families. I am a caretaker and nurturer, a protector who puts the needs of others above my own. It’s been 33 years since I received My Confirmation Verse, today I know better, God has always had my life in His hands, He alone leads me, and I in return follow His example. Matthew 5:16, my guide for life.
