A LITTLE HISTORY
Growing up, Grant always enjoyed challenging and inspiring those around him to overcome obstacles and be something significant in life. Having experienced multiple divorces within his family, Grant knew what it was to turn hardship into hope. As a teenager, he began to see how he could use his challenges to encourage and empower those around him.
When he's not traveling and speaking to students, Grant lives in Springfield, Missouri where he is a pretty normal guy. He likes running, golf, reading, cookie dough ice cream, and long walks on the beach with his wife...except they don't have beaches in Missouri.
