Don C. Davis grew up in the country on a farm. Good parents! Good church. Off to college at age seventeen, with eighty-seven dollars in his pocket.
The first thing Don did was go to the city to get a part-time job so he could work his way through college. How unlikely could it be that, when he came back from the city and walked down across the campus, there she was, Mary, self-assured and composed, who would become the love of his life, esteemed professional musician, and the mother of their twin sons Charles and Nolan, with Ph.D.s in physics and careers in physics and now in leading edge research? Unlikely? It happened!
With three degrees, Th.B., B.A., M.Div., Don followed a forty-year career as a United Methodist minister, a second career as a sales associate in men's clothing, and then the years up to now as a speaker, philosopher, and writer of ten books, with the titles of: "Granddad's Farmhouse Porch Stories," "New Tomorrows," "Apple Blossom Time," "The Future We Ask For," "A Place in the Story," "Eagles View Mountain," "Sunrise Dreams," "The New Sacred," "Profiles in a Dream Big Enough," and now, "The Reach."
Don's big long-reach dream is that the recurring "Big Ten Humanitarian Qualities" will be chosen by the world family as identity markers in the reach for our best self and future, and taught in all the learning centers of the world so no boy and girl will ever have to say, "I never was taught the Big Ten Humanitarian Qualities as the ABC's of successful living."
