“Listening opens up infinitely more aspects of the world that I would never experience without hearing others’ stories. It broadens my understandings, deepens my compassion, and connects me to feelings that I would never know otherwise. Listening makes me a better person, because it gives voice to ideas and insights that only connecting with others can give.”READ MORE

“One of my life’s mantras is to ‘know and be known.’ This happens by listening. Listening isn’t something I simply hope to embody and achieve professionally, but it is who I want to be at home with my wife and four kids, at church, at the grocery store, at the local coffee shop, on the phone, in the emails and text messages I send, and everywhere else where I have the chance to ‘know and be known.’”READ MORE
“Thank you for just listening. Thank you for not trying to fix it but just for listening. It helps.”
