Finding Strength in an Imperfect Childhood

David Beard grew up in a home with a single mother who was involved with alcohol, drugs, and questionable men. From a young age, David was the man of the house. He and his brothers took care of his mother. Despite her dysfunction, David’s mother always reminded him “God made you special.” This powerful reminder has remained with David to this day. He now reminds his own children of the same principle.
David is now a passionate educator, working with teachers to provide a positive environment for children with similar situations. David believes in the power of faith, influence, and the spoken word. He daily reminds himself that as long as we do the best we can every day in every way, we can get better and better.
