What are you working on next?
My books over the years have been spiritual works based on books of the Bible. How To Coach Youth Soccer sprang out of my 15 year passion of working with kids in this great sport. I've seen a lot of coaches come and go and miss out on the true riches of coaching. I hope this book will keep morepeople in the ranks, making significant contributions to the lives of their players. My next book has a working title of "Living Significantly: Pouring Your Life Into The Right Places". I'm returning to the spiritual with a look at a book written by King Solomon called Ecclesiastes.
Who are your favorite authors?
Harvard theologian Marva Dawn, anything by Phillip Yancy, who is also Billy Graham's favorite author, Chuck Swindoll and John Stott.
