A man who had no future. In 1994 my life was over. I thought I had lost my family, I had lost a promising career, all my friends and hope. I had no god other than alcohol and money which I had lost because of the first god – whiskey.
I sobered up. Four years later, I met Tania. A year later we both found God and a path forward. Six months later we were married. I found a job. Eighteen months later I replaced Dr. Laura at Premiere Radio. And now, I have a loving family, a good job, listeners, viewers and readers who I admire. 310 Coworkers who depend on me and I depend on them. Many of them old and new friends.
Easter is about a fresh start. I am a man who believes in starting over. Because I did it. And five years ago in the hot August sun, in the shadow of Abe Lincoln I chose a new path again. One of honor.
I still am working on being a better man, but it is difficult to change. But not impossible and well worth it. Because of moments like this. After church on the back porch about to hunt for eggs with my almost six month old granddaughter.
God is great. He keeps his promises, if we do.
