What is one piece of advice you would give to your younger self?
Communicate more with the ones you love. There’s another part of my personality that is pretty far down the introvert scale. The little voice in the back of my head says, ‘they know that you love them, and they love you’. But I think if I had given myself the advice back then, it would have been to say it more. I needed to be more expressive. I come from a long-family-line of introverts; both of my parents, my two sisters, everybody was/is an introvert. My wife on the other hand, is an extrovert! When we came to seminary, they gave both of us the Myers Briggs assessment and the counselor said “I hope you have a good marriage, this is a hard one to navigate. But if you can figure it out, you’ve got all the bases covered!” Forty-five years later, I think we got it figured out!
