The Journey Begins

Thanks for joining me here!

Below is the introduction to my book: Murder, Mayhem, Miracles… And Still Married

This book is a memoir of my life, which has been a rollercoaster ride, especially over the last 7 years. Please enjoy this intro and keep an eye open for more about me and my story!

My president, Nelson Mandela gave a copy of the following famous passage to Francois Pienaar, captain of the South African rugby team, before the 1995 Rugby World Cup which was held in South Africa.—and they won, defeating the favoured All Blacks of New Zealand. And it is this same quote that has inspired me throughout the writing of this book.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Teddy Roosevelt
