We know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
For whom God foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son Jesus. Romans 8:28.
My life is living proof that God has the amazing ability to transform disappointment into manifest destiny. The tragic events of 9/11 eliminated my hopes of a career as a commercial pilot. But as fate would have it, the end of one dream became the genesis of a new one.
I was first exposed to LegalShield as a customer several years before I ever became an associate. I loved it! I used my membership frequently and wondered why everyone didn’t own a legal plan! At the time, I was working hard in another direct-sales company, and I kept trying to recruit the associate who sold me the LegalShield membership.
I became an associate, working part-time in the beginning. As the new owner of a computer store, I propelled the company to a revenue of almost $900,000 in our best year—but my life was not my own. I was thankful to have all the money I needed, but I had no time to enjoy it.
Three years later, I received a check from LegalShield for almost $1,000—I couldn’t believe it! I called the Home Office because I thought someone had made a mistake. They informed me that the check was payment for my residuals. I knew I could make a lot more if I put the same effort into LegalShield that I was putting into my computer company.
I went to the convention, and it was the best decision I could have ever made! I made a vow that I wouldn’t return to the convention the following year without being a Ring Earner. One year later, I earned the LegalShield Ring.
LegalShield also brought me one of God’s greatest gifts—my bride. One of my team members introduced me to a new associate named Charis, and the rest is history!
God has blessed me with a wonderful wife and a beautiful son. I’m so thankful that I’ll have something to pass on to the next generation. I have the opportunity to be a father who’s integrally involved in my son’s life. And I have the opportunity to pass on a business and a legacy!
The credit for my success thus far belongs to God alone. I believe that God, in His infinite wisdom, brought LegalShield into our lives to bless us while allowing us to be a blessing to others. He has been abundantly faithful and daily makes our dreams a living reality. We are able to use our income from LegalShield to fund our ministry, which helps men focus on purity and become the husbands and fathers that God called them to be.
Although I owe the greatest debt to God, there are so many tremendous leaders who have generously sown into my life. Sincere love and thanks go to the late Mr. Dave and Mrs. Beverly Savula, Mr. Cleve Pickens, Mrs. Melissa Wilder, Mr. Michael Dorsey, Mr. Steve Baker, and countless others who have been so encouraging through the years! I appreciate the incredible staff at the Home Office for the work they do each and every day for us! Thanks for everything!
