Success found Tom at an early age, but so did alcoholism. Eventually, his alcohol abuse won and sent him into recovery. Several years later, after being sober for years, a surgery and the introduction of painkillers into his life, sent him back to the bottle and back into an active recovery.
Tom quickly realized that he didn’t have what it takes to stay sober, but God did. Today, Tom lives by Micah 6:8 as he works out his sobriety and faith in the marketplace and gives glory to God through his business and his sobriety.
Tom also makes sure he’s plugged into a Bible study and that he surrounds himself with other people who are like-minded. He gives back to his friends and his community, all in an effort to love the way Jesus did.
