I’m at a loss for words on how to properly introduce today’s guest blogger. She’s the mother of my friend, Alana Jenkins, whom I met a few years ago in dance class.

When I started this series, I counted on Roy to participate. I went ahead and added him to my list of “yeses” even before I asked him. I’m very grateful he agreed. I think you’ll enjoy his response. Roy Garland If I had to pick one thing that motivates me more than anything else it is “family” and especially the support, teaching and simply being there for the kids. You see, I have two boys and it’s important (at least to me) that when they grow old and have their own kids, they will not look back … Continue reading What motivates you, Roy Garland?
