Monty Rieck: Author, Evangelist
I'm a fourth-generation plumbing contractor, former building inspector and construction superintendent. My life is marked by extremes -- working hard, playing harder, tragedy and suffering followed with true joy. I can only give God the credit for my survival, and for showing me his love. Later in life, I hung up my spurs, began recovering from numerous injuries and became a minister of Christ. Along the way, I've seen the absolute healing power of God as I prayed for those God put in my path. My energetic wife, Heidi, and I live in Santa Barbara, California, and share eight grown children and 12 cherished grandchildren.
