Happy Belated Father’s Day — here is a special story about my dad

On Father’s Day I reflect back on my own dad and tell you a story from my life that I will never forget.

  1. Ron,
    You have been an inspiration to me for over 20 years. I met you at one of your speaking engagements and was blown away by your message. I did not speak to you that day, but left a message. You actually called me back! I met you at Crossroads Christian Church for a disabilities conference. I have been a special Ed. teacher for 31 years. I share your message ALL THE TIME. I just wanted to thank you for your honesty, courage, strength, humor and hope. God Bless you

    • Thanks for reaching out to me again. It is great to hear from you. I hope you are doing ok through this pandemic. Stay in touch, I’m on facebook a lot now a days.

  2. Ron, I read your book when I was 14 and I loved it at that time. Now, I’m 32 and I had an accident 3 weeks ago, I had a leg surgery and now it will take a while until I can walk and do sports again. I will never forget the feelling I had after reading your book, it was pure hope and love for life. I’ll read it again.
    Thank you.
    Greetings from Colombia.

  3. I’m not a father, but I’m going to give you a shout out, Mr. Ron! Hey, I saw you at Mission Hills Church in Littleton, Colorado about 20 years ago, and then saw you again, a week later, and met you that time. In that week’s time, I lost my 15 year old nephew to suicide and your message prior and afterwards and just being able to meet you and give you a hug helped me sooooo incredibly much! And, of course, I bought your book, Never Give Up. You impacted my whole family when we went to see you the next time you were in the area and love the framed picture of you with us 🙂 So thank you, my man, for being faithful to God and never giving up, all these amazing years! I cannot even imagine all the lives you have touched for the Lord 🙂 Sending love and a big hug from us all!

  4. Just wanted to say thank you for inspiring me and my life. I was in juvenile prison in Colorado Springs years ago and when you came and spoke to us it always stuck with me. You decided to roll on. And make your life count even after a tragedy. And your family still loves you. I was probably 13-14 years old. And I’m 30 now. You were a blessing and always inspire me to not give up. Just wanted to say thanks 🙏 and Send love

  5. You spoke to school when I was in 4th or 5th grade. I value your message of hope and inspiration. I am now 32. Have lived life in addiction. You make me want to overcome and accomplish goals. Thank you.
