This week I am sharing about some of the most influential men in my life.
The best way to describe Don Staton is, "Leader".
Don did not go quietly into retirement, he turned it up as he and his wife Helene invested in the lives of young couples with fervor. Don spent time with me and many other men my age as a teacher and guide. He taught me what true Christian discipleship looks like, a part from him, this root action of our faith may have been lost to me.
Through Don I developed a love for reading, and because of him I learned how to disciple my family and those brought into my life. He was walking wisdom. His influence lives in the life of my marriage, the relationship I have with my children and the shared faith of Christ.
Don was placed in my life at a pivotal time for me and I know so many others, I thank God for the life and commitment of Don Staton.
