Questions folks ask me…

What is WHELHO?


WEL-ho | adverb

A lifestyle of self improvement, joy, hope and service to others.
example: David’s continued dedication and time invested in the young men he mentors is a great example of the WHELHO lifestyle. He’s always looking for ways to better himself so he can serve others more effectively.

WHELHO stands for Work Hard | Enjoy Life | Help Others


The WHELHO Wheel is a personal development tool I designed decades ago to help business owners and board members I was consulting. It helps to simplify a complicated life into more manageable components.

We are currently using the WHELHO Wheel as a personal development tool within the Dream Development Project and have plans to make it available to the public on

Did you really live in a ? for two years?

Yup, sure did.

As a homeless teen, i lived within the canopy of a huge pepper ? for two years.


Do you remember anything from when you died?

Deep question…

We could talk for a long time about this one. :)

I was overwhelmed with peace. Indescribable peace.
Philippians 4:7 talks about a peace that passes all human understanding. I believe I may have glimpsed the tiniest slice of what we’re in for in heaven.

During my recovery, I could feel the weight of daily life return to my shoulders, and I fell into a deep depression. I was extremely angry with God for allowing me to live. Every day I felt less and less of that peace. I journaled frantically, trying to retain as much as possible, but I felt it slipping and there was nothing I could do. I was pissed. No two ways about it.

It took me a couple months to transition from anger and complete selfishness, to the call God had on my life for my remaining days. Over the first half of life, I had raised three fantastic humans and now it’s time to lay my life down in service to others.

About 6 months later…

I started having nightly recurring dreams of my death.

I say “love you!” to my family, get a kiss from my sweetheart, and I’m wheeled into the operating room. Then I open my eyes and find myself in Jesus’s arms. I feel that peace again. Overwhelming indescribable peace.
