The whole message of “Change Before You Have To” got a lot more serious when my trainer and friend, Steve Toms died only days after the book was launched. He was a great inspiration to me and had really turned his own personal life around not that long ago. It appears that it was from a heart abnormality as he was the picture of health.

He had his own page in my book, (My wife is the only other person with an entire page they could say is their own.) and his quote now takes on an eternal meaning. He was an inspiration to many and will be missed. His faith in Jesus was strong, his place in heaven secure and his life reminds us all to Change Before We Have To.


“People who live in a state of vulnerability need to change to stability so they can really live when they change to a state of vitality!”
