Highlights -
Steve practices wellness by taking walks, sitting on his porch during rain storms, meditating, and enhancing Christian Spiritual relationships. He has 2 cats. A few interesting facts to help you get to know Steve better: His favorite books include the Bible, the "Left Behind" book series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, and "Feeling Good" by David Burns. Steve finds a special connection with Glenn Holland from "Mr. Holland's Opus". He says, "Glenn Holland had a dream. However, he never seemed to be able to fulfill his dream because life continued to get in the way. It was only at retirement that he realized the impact he had on so many people throughout his life. We can often feel unappreciated and feel our life is a failure, but if we always try to do what is right, we may not have fame or fortune, we can have something much more valuable, a life that is a positive example and influence on those in our sphere."
