Across the board, from his days growing up on a farm, playing sports, becoming a husband, a father, serving on the school board, candidate for congress, starting a non-profit, teaching and coaching school kids, teaching in church, building a business, serving on boards, and becoming a grandpa, Ron's books and chalk talks capture simple truths that remind us of the incredible God-given wisdom to be had inside the simple activities of life.
He tells stories that reveal powerful insights and applications for facing our fears, persevering through times of trouble, working through drudgery and doubt, keeping commitments, keeping our poise, building trust, staying balanced, perfecting performance, understanding our drives, giving to others, working with others, finishing well, and learning to be thankful. Ron's hope is that in some small way his works will inspire a champion to rise in every reader; a champion who wills to make our world better by making "Better" a way of life.
