Life Well Invested
by Rick Boxx

Many make changes to fulfill their call, but rarely as dramatic as my friend Peter Spokes. Peter's business talent led him through General Mills' ranks eventually becoming President of Yoplait Yogurt.
As Peter's family grew to 6 kids, God captured his heart for being the best father he could be, and to help others do likewise. At the height of his career, Peter left General Mills to join National Center for Fathering, for significantly reduced pay.
Peter's personal mission was Malachi 4:6, "He will turn the hearts of the fathers to their children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers."
As my friend Peter lies in a hospice bed, preparing to see his heavenly Father, I know that thousands of fathers are eternally grateful for Peter investing his life as God directed.
