Thanks For The Motivation


I just wanted to say that I have really enjoyed and looked forward to reading your inspirational stories in PRB each month over the years. I have passed a number of them on to my own kids, church groups and [co-workers]. I am planning on retiring at the end of April this year and my wife and I plan to do what I have spent most of my life doing for others and that is recreating and traveling around this beautiful country in our motor home and enjoying the lovely scenery that God has created. Also, I plan to spend more time in Minnesota playing with the four grandkids we have living up there with our daughter and son-in-law. Keep up the good work–I will miss getting to read your articles in the future.

Happy Trails,

I just read your article in PRB January. Wow. Very well-written and right to the point. I hope many people read it and pass it along … AND take it to heart.

Hi Ron,

I enjoyed your article in the February issue, as always (“Give Of Yourself”). This one brought some tears to my eyes, so I thought I’d tell you so.

Dear Ron,

I just received PRB in the mail this morning. I just wanted to let you know what a nice article “Give Of Yourself” was. As I read the first page, I had to stop and flip back to the cover of the magazine to make sure it was the same one I picked up. It made me stop and reflect that what actions we do to others–big or small–do have an impact.
