“I love you. You know that, right?”

Welcome to Papa’s Pearls! This website is devoted to sharing my father’s heart and his pearls of wisdom for how to live a happy, productive and meaningful life.

Papa's PearlsThis blog is a companion to my book, Papa’s Pearls: A Father’s Gift of Love and Wisdom To His Children and Grandchildren, that tells the story of how my father transformed his own life as a Depression Era street kid on a fast track to prison to become the archetype of a successful self-made man who was also a loving father.

The nurturing customs, practical advice, and life success principles (learned through the school of hard knocks) that he dispensed to me, my siblings, and his grandchildren, can be used to transform your life, achieve your dreams, and strengthen or rebuild bonds with your family.

I intend to share and discuss some of Papa’s Pearls with you, and want to hear about the lessons you learned from your father too.  Feel free to comment and please invite your friends and family to join us.
