Power Physical Therapy and Sports Medicine February 2019

LIFE-CHANGING EXPERIENCES MEETING MY WIFE AND PROPELLING OUR BUSINESS FORWARD Not many people can say a conference changed the course of their life, but that’s exactly what happened to me. Nearly 20 years ago, I had been living in southern California for about a year when I ran into a friend from college at a church conference. That friend introduced me to a friend of theirs, who then invited me out to a group lunch with various other strangers. But in that mix of people, one woman caught my eye immediately — Angela. She was beautiful, of course, but what really impressed me was that we had so many things in common. We were both readers and enjoyed reading a number of the same authors regarding topics of faith and family. We held the same values on these topics as well. I had not met someone like her before, where there were so many points of commonality between us on so many different and important issues. And, for good measure, she loved sports! I knew she was special right then. Early in our relationship, I knew she was the one I wanted to spend the rest of my life with, but God had a little test for us first. Nearly a year into our

But Angela has been so helpful in seeing things in a way I never would and has given me great feedback to foster our success. She now serves in a dual role as a stay-at-home mom and helper behind the scenes of the clinic. This Valentine’s Day, I’m thankful for Angela and all the care she puts into our family and business. I hope you and your loved ones have a loving day, and I hope as we move through 2019, you continue to work toward improving your health and your life. It’s easy to get bogged down and forget about New Year’s promises we make to ourselves, but the dedication to bettering you and striving to love your body should be an all-year promise. No one knows what can happen when you take a chance; maybe you’ll wind up at a conference that changes your life, too.

relationship, Angela was sent to work in Geneva, Switzerland, where she would stay for seven months. We did the long distance thing, and right when she came back I proposed. I mean literally when she came back. I couldn’t wait any longer, and after picking her up from the airport, we went to a scenic area overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It wasn’t extravagent, but sincere and heartfelt. Three months later, on Dec. 29 — our second anniversary — we were married. It’s been 17 years since our wedding day, and everyday continues to be an adventure as we now raise our sons together. Living life with the person you love goes by so fast. I’ve spent nearly 20 years with Angela, and the entire relationship has been a blessing. It’s pretty neat to have somebody by your side for so long and to experience the many ups and downs life has to offer. For us, it’s been a measure of God’s goodness and grace. With her business and accounting background, Angela has been integral in helping me lift Power Physical
