How do you put into words the importance someone has in your life? Love and time strengthens the emotions until they are so powerful and deep that the act of holding hands expresses them in such a fundamental way that words cannot. My wife, Rose, knows her importance to my life. Without her love and support, I never would have become the husband, father, Christian, and man that I am today. Rose, you are my partner, foundation, and sharer of dreams, and I dedicate this book to you. Thank you for your support, love, faith, questions, and our two wonderful children (Rebekah and Daniel). We are truly blessed as a family.
