Every good man wants his wife to know that she is loved, respected, honored and desired. Here you will find thoughts and ideas on how you can give this to your wife.
It’s funny. I always seem to have a good word to say about so many other people but it is hard to sit and write about myself. There is the easy stuff, I am 44 years old, a Christian, a husband, a father, a grandfather, a business owner. Those are the pat answers but they really don’t tell you WHO I AM.
More to the point, I am married to the most wonderful woman that God ever created. She is kind, she is compassionate, she is loving, she is a great mother and she is beautiful. She is my absolute best friend. I have known her for 7 years and we became great friends before we fell in love.
I have one adopted daughter from my first marriage, she is now 24, almost 25. She is the mother of my only grandson, Chase. She is funny, smart, and a great singer. I have three other great kids with my first wife. Zack is 21 and living in San Francisco. He is a writer, a singer, a philosopher, and a great son. Kandiss is 18, going to college in Dallas. She is smart, driven, beautiful and makes me so proud. And Seth who is 15. He is funny, lovable, compassionate, a great friend to his buddies, and destined to be a great man. I also have two great stepchildren. Dylan is 8 years old. He is smart, handsome, shy, in love with his mom, and makes me laugh everyday. And finally Izzy who is 4. She is 80 lbs. of personality in a 40 lb. body. She is the funniest little girl I have ever known. She is smart, beautiful, and I can’t wait to see her grow up.
I am also divorced. I consider this one of the true failures in my life. I worked very hard at making my first marriage work and was not successful. No matter what advice I give in this blog, I was not perfect in any way. I don’t regret anything about my first marriage other than its demise. It made me a man. In many ways it made me the man that you will see as you read my blog. I only hope that this blog will help other couples do the work that must be done to make your marriage work.
I was born and raised in Southern California. We have a really big extended family. My mom and dad have been married for 52 years and are a great example to all of us. My dad owns a sign company and my sister works with him. She is 50 years old and a great sister. I also have an older brother living in Texas with his wife and two daughters along with their families. My brother and I have worked together most of our lives and it has been a great pleasure to me. We all miss him now that he has moved.
I also own Visible Graphics. A national provider of electric signs to retailers like Jamba Juice, Vans, The Coffee Bean and Famous Footwear. For most of my life, signs and business have been one of my great passions. My love for business and having been through extremely difficult times I also spend a great deal of time consulting with companies that are facing severe financial difficulties. I do all of this with my associate Pat who is one of the most amazing men I have ever known in this field. With his experience and wisdom, we have taken many companies through bankruptcy and reorganization, restoring their companies, their relationships and even their lives.
Please leave me a comment on this if there is anything else you would like to know about me. It would be my pleasure to share with you who I am.
P.S. If your interested, I have posted a short video of our wedding. Look in the left column under pages.
