Current Work


Steve is a writer, speaker and educator. He's founder and president of Legacy Educational Resources, providing resources for  teachers of life skills and character education in public schools at www.character-education.info and resources for youth workers and pastors at www.youth-ministry.info. A self-styled "wisdom broker," he collects wisdom from many fields and packages it for teachers and writers via the Web.

His two Web sites attract over 800 people (sessions) per day, who log on for resources such as lesson plans, articles, quotes, activities and people stories.

Steve has invested the bulk of his life in work with young adults. Shortly after the fall of Communism in Czechoslovakia, he moved with his family to Slovakia, training youth workers with Reach Out Youth Solutions. After his wife was diagnosed with cancer, he returned to the States with his wife and four boys,  where he began writing resources for Central and Eastern Europe. This grew into a global ministry via the Web. 

Several years after his wife's death, he married Cherie, who was raising three boys of her own. Now with seven boys, Steve has an intimate knowledge of the problems and possibilities facing today’s young people.

Steve has written on varied topics such as personal finance, philosophy of religion, ethnomusicology, writing and marketing. Here are some of his books, with links to their presence on Amazon.
