"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
"Leaders aren't born, they are made."
I grew up on a farm in western Kansas and developed a deep fondness for the rich history of our country and the hopes, dreams and struggles of all the people who committed and gave their lives for an idea. A country built on hard work and a belief in a better future left a legacy we all need to be reminded of.
Linda, my wife, and I were married in 1980 and we have three grown children and 5 grandchildren. Both of us grew up on a farm, so we are pretty down-to-earth and enjoy working with our hands and helping others in our own special ways.
Beginning in 1998, I developed several programs based on events that helped shaped our country and our future. Patriotism is a call-back to our founding and there are valuable lessons of hope, survival, leadership, and sacrifice that we must continue to remember and learn from.
I've been singing all my life, and these patriotic and inspiring programs where I incorporate my singing abilities make a unique program for any event.
