Each spring as we see the small sprouts of green emerge from the snow-melt saturated soil, we are reminded of new life and new beginnings. Often changes of season are marked with excitement but also unknowns, challenges, and risk. Such it is with life. Yet we press on for we know that often the unknowns bring pleasant surprises, challenges bring adventure, and risk brings reward.
As we embark on this new adventure and season of life, I would like to thank the many people that have help shape me, teach me, encourage me, and challenge me. It truly has been a joy to get to know and work with so many great people.
Thank you to all my family, friends, coaches, and teachers who believed in me.
Thank you to all my bosses and co-workers at Kohler Engines, Tesoro, and ConocoPhillips that made work enjoyable and memorable.
Thank you to my wife Emily and 3 kids Eli, Braden, and Josie who have always stood by my side, believed in me, and even put up with all my crazy shenanigans and ideas.
Thank you to Jesus for saving me, giving me purpose and direction, and for the continual love and grace you show me.
THANK YOU ALL! I hope to see you around town, at the COMPASS COFFEEHOUSE, or maybe out on the trail, the mountain, or the river.
And now, on to new adventures…THE COMPASS
