Learning life’s lessons, I have given talks on may subject that have been experience throughout my life such as: Homelessness in America while RVing full time to 50 states giving more than 34,000 pairs of socks away. Volunteerism how much more you get back when you do things out of love. Loss, the loss of a loved one, the loss of all your material possessions, the loss of innocence as a child. Minimalism whether forced by tragedy or by choice as I have chosen later on in life. Addiction, the suffering of everyone around you and the suffering of your own pain. Traveling and RV on a full time basis, these are all personal stories that I have experienced in this thing we call life.

If you are interested in having me speak at any venue nothing is to small and nothing is to large.  I have talked before a knitting club who were so touched by my story about the homeless people I served they now knit hats and scarfs for me. The Lutheran Home in which they are affiliated with every year makes a financial contribution to the Sok-Man mission in order to continue my message.  I have been invited for the last three years running to the Norge Elementary School to speak to the students and accept their generous gift of socks for homeless plus I have been given the opportunity to speak in various classrooms at local high schools in the area and various venues throughout the nation.
