In this second, Part II, of our Conversations For Keeps with Clark Wingate, we spend most of our time talking about the 10th Mountain Division, his part in the start-up of that unit and the intense training required to prepare men to serve as mountain/snow soldiers. I’m proud to know Clark and today, Veterans’ Day 2014, to thank him for his service during WWII and wish him many more years to share his stories and to enjoy his life.
I recently released a new recording of Daniel Lanois’ The Maker. This release is produced entirely by Ken Dravis, www.AspenLeafProductions.com . I plan to post it on YouTube as soon as I have the proper licensing. Meantime, if you like this, please share with your friends and acquaintences.
This recording of Dolly Parton’s From Here to the Moon and Back was recorded by me as a Christmas gift to my wife, Jan. I am just now licensed to distribute it. It, too, was produced by Ken Dravis, www.AspenLeafProductions.com. And again, if you like it, please share on your FaceBook pages and otherwise with your friends.
Clark Wingate is one of our few remaining World War II Veterans. He seems just as energetic in his story telling as I imagine he was 70 years ago. I know you will love this Conversation for Keeps episode and know also that we'll be broadcasting, and then podcasting, a second interview with Clark where we'll talk a lot about his being one of the founding members of the 10th Mountain Division based right here in CO.
Thom Segren, Part II is the second of two interviews with Thom. Last month's was a lot about Thom himself, his life stories and his values. This time, we're getting into the depth of his Non Profit, CHILDREN WITH HOPE. He talks about the detail of land acquisition in Kenya, the local politics and how that impacts the ministry. You'll be fascinated if you open this site and listen to even a little of this 30 minute wrap up.
Thom Seagren is an entrepreneur. So far in his young life, he's successfully started and maintained at least two businesses. Both of which are still going strong. But, possibly more important, he is the co founder (along with his wife) of "Children With Hope" which is an orphanage in Kenya. In this Part I, you'll get to hear just who Thom is, what motivates him in life and in business, what kind of people he comes from and what he holds as dear in life. Next month, we plan to broadcast a second, Part II, interview where we'll get into the detail about Children With Hope.
Mindy, as many of you may know, has been living and working in Afghanistan for many years now. She's working with her true passion--helping vulnerable people and has worked for companies located there that mirror that passion. She is working to better peoples' lives and to help them transition their lives and health to the modern century. She is fluent in the language and nearly so in the culture. So tune in and be amazed as I was. This is a woman I am proud and thrilled to know.
What's it like to be a professional guide in the high adventure arena of the Alaskan mountains and what did you learn from your life during those times? What were some of your adventures? How did God involve Himself into those times, if at all? These are some of the many questions Jim undertakes to discuss and answer during this Part II of the interview we broadcast last month, in June. You'll love to hear this so tune in, especially if you missed the June broadcast of this Part II
Jim Hale. Raised in the dangerous outdoors environment of Alaska, in the highest of mountain peaks, a guide for other adventurers and now a guide for lots more people in his role as a local pastor and lecturer. Jim has authored the fabulous non fiction book,An Alaskan Life of High Adventure and has lectured alone and with other adventurers all over our Country. Take a listen...you won't be sorry.
We needed a second interview! If you liked last month’s, tune in here again. Teresa is continuing her discussion of the future of the Math and Science Center and what her hopes and dreams are for it. Teresa, former mayor of Grand Junction, is now the CEO of the Center.
TERESA COONS is now the CEO of the Math and Science Center. Here she talks about her passions in life and how and where she grew up, how she once became mayor of Grand Junction, and later CEO of the Center and what she hopes to see in the Center in both the near and more distant future.
You may remember that I interviewed John McConnell who became the originator and founder of the Math and Science Center, a non profit dedicated to helping young people regain a love of learning by making science fun and meaningful.
If you picked up the conversation last month with David and Mandy Vindiola, you certainly will want to continue with this month's "Conversation For Keeps." Not only did they elaborate on their own principles and values, they really delve into why they are each so passionate about health and wellness as a life style for everyone. Give a listen.
Dave and Mandy learned early how to articulate their passions and then create a life plan that will honor them. Listen to how they have been able to coordinate goals into the ownership of numerous businesses. At a relatively young age they are making a living, honoring each other, and following their interests both personal and financial. This is Part One. Part Two will follow next month
Matt Kettlewell has spent time doing a lot of different things in his young life. And one thing he has learned is to focus on what you love and understand that you can learn to embrace something you at first didn't recognize as within your comfort zone, let alone a passion. Risk taking in a career choice can be just that.
Jessica Downing Ford has created for herself a surprising career. This is a simply fascinating story. You don't want to miss this one.
Ken Dravis, creative and innovative. One of the most creative people I've run into in a while. You'll love his stories about how he built Aspen Leaf Studios and why. You'll also want to visit his beautiful website. There's lots of wonderful video and audio on that site. http://www.aspenleafrecording.com/Home.html
Scott Hogue, Christian pastor and Hospice chaplain, describes what it really means to him to say that his life is his Walk with God. Today we open a new chapter called Conversations For Keeps. This Conversation with Scott epitomizes what we mean by that...a CONVERSATION FOR KEEPS.

Here's a man who'd rather be behind the plate as an ump than most anything else he can think of, except for all the other things he dearly loves, such as coaching, mentoring young people, building relationships in his community and watching people grow and live. There is almost more here than we could get into our 30 minute pricelessConversation.
Mark Zipse was been in public education nearly all his life. From teaching in the classroom to administering entire schools as principal, he is known and loved throughout Western Colorado. Educators who truly love kids seem to have the best and richest stories about life with those kids. There are some great ones here that make it easy for us to see what he values and why. Enjoy.
