People often ask me who I look up to, who my heroes are, who inspires me, and other varieties of these questions. They are always disappointed with my answer. They expect no doubt for me to name people everyone knows. My heroes are the people who have contributed to this small volume, and millions more like them.
The mere fact that you have picked this book up suggests that you are one of them. My heroes are ordinary people, people who seek to live their one brief life with integrity and faith. They have dreams for themselves, their families, their church, and society. And they are serious about improving themselves, their families, their church, and society. My heroes work hard to support their families. They do what they can, with what they have, where they are, in order to bring a little more light into their corner of the world. They are lovers of a God who sometimes feels close, at other times seems to be far off and indifferent, and often seems elusive. They have come face-to-face with their own inadequacies, and they know their faults and flaws better than most. My heroes hold a common set of values that make them better people. And even though they fall short of these values on a daily basis, they wake up the next morning, dust themselves off, and strive again.
My heroes have money problems, marriage problems, and family problems. They strive to be the best parents they can be. They struggle with addiction, health problems, and often wonder if they are on the right career path. They show up and keep showing up in every aspect of life despite their shortcomings and uncertainty. My heroes know that life is difficult. They know the ups and downs, the joys and heartaches, but they wake up each morning hoping for the best and working to make the world a better place for my children and yours. They make me want to be a better person. The quality of a person’s life is easily measured by the quality of the people in his or her life. I have been blessed in so many ways in this life. The people who have surrounded me have played a significant role in blessing my life.
