I’m a middle child – four years separate me on both sides from my nearest siblings. Plus, for nearly all my adult life, I’ve lived far away from the rest of my family, and to be honest, I don’t have a lot in common with the people who grew up in the same house I did. So, when my older brother suggested that the four boys and our dad get together in Detroit for a few days of “guy time,” I wasn’t sure what to expect. But – the one thing we all DO have in common is being...Read More

This year for Spring Break – rather than head to a beach where the weather still might be iffy in early April – we decided for something less traditional. None of us had been to San Antonio before (although it’s...Read More
I travel a lot for work and I like it. I like going to new places, seeing new things, eating new foods, and best of all – getting to know new people.

Just another lawn-mowing day in the life of a Northern Utah teenager. One hot summer afternoon as a kid, I was mowing the front yard when a car pulled over in front of my house. The passenger rolled his window down and motioned me over. I stopped the mower and went to the car, which contained two elderly couples.

He asked,...Read More
