Why it is important that a man work for a living

My dad stood his ground when it mattered

  1. Get a job during the summer.
  2. Finish college…in four years.
  3. Live on your own after college.

Every man should work for a living

I swam for the Lee High school team, but not for the Saratoga summer team.

I learned this lesson after my sophomore year

Picture of me in Germany as an exchange student. Lots of fun that summer.

I worked every summer after my sixteenth birthday

I worked at the AMC movie theater in Springfield Mall. My friends saw many movies that summer.

I plan to enforce the same standard

Work takes priority over summer fun

We scrapped the Benelux summer vacation plan so that Riley could focus on soccer and work.

Work will teach you many life lessons

Idle time can be dangerous for a young man

Working hard is a biblical principle
