I was in Indianapolis earlier this month for Tyndale Publishing House, publisher of my books, Quiet Strength and Uncommon. They held a contest where people sent in essays about “Uncommon” heroes in their lives. The winning “heroes” joined me in Indianapolis for a service project. We chose to go to Riley Hospital for Children and deliver baskets for Basket of Hope.
We had a wonderful time and I got to meet two tremendous high school coaches from Louisiana: Dutton Wall and Roy Serie. They coach at rival high schools but have changed their town’s attitude about competition by the way their teams respect each other and support each other in the big game.
The other winner was Scott Wedel, a father from Nebraska, who was nominated by his daughter because of how he leads his family, even while working multiple jobs.
It was a great blessing to me to meet these three Uncommon men.
