Long before Jim Weiss turned his passion for telling stories into a profession, he told stories to his own child.

The results were a lifelong love of reading, an unquenchable thirst to learn, a passionate ability to listen, and a profound sense of passing along the central beliefs of those who came before us.

Becoming a Man of Valor
