Favorite Quote:  "The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane.” - David Orr

 

“Come to me, and I will give you rest.” – Jesus

 

If people really knew me, they’d know: How great my wife is! And that I don’t eat dill pickles.
