On March 31, 2019, I closed the PR firm that bore my name for 28 years. As head of the first PR firm in the country to work exclusively with faith-based organizations and causes, I was privileged to occupy a front-row seat to nearly three decades of evangelical history.
Closing the business I loved and saying goodbye to my professional family and clients has filled me with a range of emotions, but none more profound than gratitude. Indeed, it seems I spent much of the beginning of this year saying thank you—thank you to clients, team members, vendors, reporters, advisors and friends across the country.
Throughout my career I have been struck by the image of a turtle on a fencepost and what it represents. If you see a turtle on a fencepost, you know it didn't get there by itself—someone put it there. Well, I didn't get here by myself either—I was placed here by people who believed in me, encouraged me, worked for me, hired me, recommended me, counseled and advised me. For those people I will forever be thankful and grateful.
Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen.
