Learning life’s lessons, I am able to talk about: Homelessness in America, Volunteerism, Loss, Addiction, Minimalism, these are all personal accounts of lessons I have learned while getting through 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 serve they now knit hats and scarfs for me and the Lutheran Home in which they are affiliated every year makes a financial contribution to the Sok-Man mission.  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 in the area and I have been given the opportunity to speak in various classrooms at Hoffman Estates High School and various other schools throughout the nation.
