Discover a Secretly Incredible Life   
          in an Ordinary World 
Bob's audacious, whimsical, incredible life didn't begin that way.  He struggled, sacrificed, and persevered.  Bob is Intentional.  

[As a college student he spent 16 days in the Pacific Ocean with five guys and a crate of canned meat. As a father he took his kids on a world tour to eat ice cream with heads of state. He made friends in Uganda, and they liked him so much he became the Ugandan consul. He pursued his wife for three years before she agreed to date him. His grades weren't good enough to get into law school, so he sat on a bench outside the Dean’s office for seven days until they finally let him enroll. -- Amazon]

I used to be afraid of failing at something that really mattered to me.  But now, I'm more afraid of succeeding at things that don't. 

Does your heart need a lift?  Does your spirit need to soar?  Does your soul need a hug?  This is it!  The way Bob walks through life is simply remarkable.  His heart is open and available to moments and people so fortunate to call him friend, like Ryan in Love.

Each chapter is a lesson learned and life story so rich it makes you laugh and then think as Bob parallels it to a scripture reference.  He offers it up so subtly there's no preaching, just simple acknowledgement of the power and joy found in loving others.

I used to think religion tasted horrible, but now I know I was just eating the fake stuff. 

You begin to think, "Can I live a life of whimsy and joy?"  "Do I dare try?"  "You know, I think I can . . . and will!"

I first read this delightful book on audio by the author (highly recommended) and then bought a paperback copy AND also have an ebook of it.  This has now become my February favorite read.  Take a look . . .Your life will never be the same again.

Thanks for stopping by . . . [HUGS]
