My Speaking Page

I’m passionate about making family a top priority in people’s lives. Being a part of Family First, a national non-profit organization, has provided me the opportunity to speak to millions of people each week through the The Family Minute daily radio program. The radio feature is heard on nearly 300 mainstream radio stations in 40 states, Canada and American Forces Radio Network worldwide. I’ve also been fortunate to touch many lives as I speak to businesses, government, civic and religious organizations on topics regarding parenting, fatherhood, marriage and leadership.

I speak for businesses, conferences, religious organizations and non-profits. Here is my speaking demo video reel.
