It was Christmas Eve when Greg, age sixteen, sat alone, huddled under a thin blanket, watching his breath condense in the frigid air. He sat in an unheated room on a dirty mattress in a rundown part of town, lonely, discouraged, hungry and broken. But in his heart was a hope and a dream — to fall in love, have a family, be happy and make sure that his children never had to go through the heartache and loneliness he was feeling.
Twenty-two years later, Greg has been happily married for sixteen years and is the father of seven children. Since 2007, he and his wife, Rachel, have wandered the earth with their family, visiting or living in over thirty countries on five continents. Professionally he is a mentor and hero for youth, inspiring them to pursue impossible dreams, become their best self, and reach upward.
