Tom Boomershine has been a United Methodist pastor for over 20 years. Cursed with the gift of an inquisitive mind, his hobbies have ranged from music, brewing beer, reading/writing, storytelling, weight lifting, and other forms of exercise. At the ripe age of 50 years old, he has realized that in order to do anything well he must focus. As such, the martial art Aikido has become his primary hobby in which he will have a black belt soon. The love of his life is Winter, his primary partner in writing this book. His other loves include his three children and two grandchildren. Tom is currently the pastor of DeWitt United Methodist Church in DeWitt, Iowa. He is a certified life and executive coach specializing in Judith E. Glaser’s Conversational Intelligence coaching methods.
