More about me:
I am a most passionate person in the areas of keeping a healthy balance of life related to St. Luke 2:52: growing in wisdom, stature and favor with God and mankind! I love staying in touch with current events, healthy eating and exercise, my DEVOS with God and socializing with friends. I am a diverse, multi-faceted individual, who has many on-going friendships and ministry activities. I am also a fairly disciplined person with high standards and I can be quite particular. People think that I have "it all together," but I am still a person with feelings, goals, shortcomings, joys and disappointments just like everyone else. I usually spend leisure in sports activities: Masters Swim Team in Bozeman, MT; hiking/backpacking/canoeing in Yellowstone, skiing/snowboarding at home in Big Sky,MT, as well as nordic skate skiing; and weight training at Big Sky Fire Department.


Oprah Winfrey Campaign for DAP

Posted on January 24, 2011 at 5:51pm 1 Comment

It was tough to get a message in under 2000 characters over to the Oprah Show but below is what I was able to personalize and submit in the campaign to have the efforts of Diversity in Aquatics and National Drowing Prevention Alliance to hopefully be recognized on an upcoming Oprah TV show.  It would be great to read others' entries and motivate others to submit their letters as well!!

Thanks DAP for making us aware of this!  All the Best to You and to this…

That's great Brad. Very impressive feat. If you want to blog on the site about your experiences that would be helpful and insightful for all. How long did it take you to reach all 50 states?
