My book title, My Best for Him, provides a statement about my life in Christ. I have not always been the best of Christians and have committed my share of sins and behavior unbecoming to a person of faith. Rather, my early life was a series of "falling away," putting myself ahead of Jesus, but coming back to His grace and mercy. God has always had a way of nudging me back on his path, and I am eternally grateful that he has. I have had many "hims" and "hers" in my life, including my parents, my wife Sherry, teachers, coaches, and mentors. This is a story about always trying to do my best for them, but ultimately doing my best for God.

About the Author
I was raised in a working class conservative Christian family from Iowa. My grandfather was a Presbyterian minister for most of his life, so our family learned about Jesus and salvation at an early age. All of us were taught the value of hard work, dedication, honesty, with strong morals and ethics. My siblings and I were all very athletic, which provided for several of us to earn scholastic/athletic scholarships. I was fortunate to earn a scholarship to attend and graduate from the University of Washington. I played football and ran track and field. After college, I was a player in professional football, eight years in the National Football League and two years in the World Football league. After my days as a professional football player, I was a real estate executive for forty years before retirement. My wife Sherry and I have been married for forty-two years and have four children and eight grandchildren. We are so grateful for our faith in Christ, for it has been our sustenance for all of our lives. I wrote my memoir, My Best for Him, to honor God along with my mother and father, as well as our entire family. It is my fervent hope that if my memoir saves one soul it will have achieved my goal.
