As we live our lives in this complex world, we all need wisdom and guidance. Where can we turn? In the Bible, we can turn to the book of Proverbs. In it we find principles for living that will help us as we try to live out our Christian life. This study, while useful to any Christian, is specifically designed for men and women in prison or on parole. In each of the chapters there are real life illustrations of the principles taught in Proverbs. Read this study and find wisdom for life.
Dick was saved at age 19 while in the Navy. Afterwards, he attended Wheaton College and Wheaton Graduate School earning a M.A. in New Testament Studies. Dick and Marilyn were married in 1962, and have been blessed with three children and six grandchildren.

Prior to his work with ECS Ministries, Dick and his wife served as leaders in their church's Junior High Department. He was also involved in evangelism and active at church.

I call her my Resplendent Bride because I have eyes and ears and for a time she even let me hold her hand.
Yet although her time among us was cut short by cancer, I still feel the afterglow of her resplendence. We were married less than three years. I buried my heart and my wedding ring in St. Louis.
We walked through the shadowlands hand-in-hand until she drew her final breath. She suffered gracefully in a world that does not know what to do with pain.
The Christian faith has always been about death and resurrection, for those twin truths were the reason the Lord Jesus sojourned among us. We have forgotten the old way—we have forgotten how to suffer and die well.
Danielle was my Resplendent Bride, and the church is Christ’s. I invite you to walk through this broken house so that you may know our small part in the divine love story.
As King David said in Psalm 27:13, “. . . I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!” and if not, I know the resurrection fast approaches.
Come, won’t you sit amongst the graves with me, and dream of Resurrection Day?
