Chapter 18. Meet My First Mentor

by Lois Wolfe-Morgan

Where did you model the basic habits of character that have carried you forward in your life? Lois Wolfe-Morgan tells her story.

One of the most powerful influences in my life has been my father, Larry Lyden. He has been a mentor to me all of my life in many ways. He's approaching 87 years of age, but you would never know it to look at him. He's a lively gentleman who is constantly whistling. He has never lost the bounce in his step and the “snap” in his personality.
