H. Wayne Huizenga 1937-2018 The invite read: Family and Friends at a private Memorial Service for our father. Wednesday, March 28, 2018 at 4:00 PM Everyone was comfortably in their seat by 3:58. Respect. Friend John McWhinney, direct from Ireland, sang "Danny Boy." The assemblage filled the large sanctuary at The First Baptist Church of Fort Lauderdale. The Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport must have been busy as lead- ers from around the world came to pay respect and celebrate "Wayne" for a life well lived. Pastor Larry Thompson officiated and was warm, engaging and masterful, talking about a subject he knew well; a beguiling theme about a private Titan magnate with steel blue eyes with an amazing warm twinkle. Generous. Wayne just wanted to "help." "He is our Wayne and will be in our hearts forever." Pamela Huizenga Alexander, daughter of Marti and Wayne Huizenga, spoke about "what an amazing ride they have been on," sharing warm personal mem- ories about her family; her dad. No need to recount the accomplishments of H. Wayne because it appeared that hundreds of CEO's, celebrities and sports legends were sitting in the audience as testimony to the typical bio run-down you would read about in the papers or business magazines, and this was about Wayne the father, grand- father and "best friend" to people like Auto Nation CEO, Mike Jackson. Jackson, recalling humorous stories about triumphs and tribulations and when faced with daunting challenges how Wayne stepped up and "we" will make it happen. H. Wayne Huizenga, Jr. shared how proud he was in 2004 to stand shoulder to shoulder as his dad repeated the sinner’s prayer and invited the Lord into his heart and the fulfillment he felt knowing he would have eternity together with his mother and father in heaven. Wayne and Marti Huizenga touched almost every charity and initiative and leave a legacy of amazing humanity with amazing grace. You could see it in the eyes, the body language; here was Wayne Huizenga the chairman of dozens of companies led by dozens of CEO's and dozens of presidents, and when they or their people speak and mention "the boss," there is no mistaking that H. Wayne Huizenga was that person. - Les Feldman, publisher PERSPECTIVE 4 Step – Hold – Step – Hold – by Stephan Tchividjian INSIGHT 6 How Screens Are Killing Teens – by Rob Hoskins CHURCH UNITED 8 Soul Care for Pastors – by Alan Platt LIFEPOINTS 10 Scotland and Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School – by Dr. Gary Hewins LIFEWORK LEADERSHIP 12 Family Legacy from Lifework Leadership – by Shelly Pond PARENTING 14 Raising Kids of Conscience – Dr. Bob Barnes and Torrey Roberts GOOD NEWS WANTS TO KNOW 20 – 22 What’s a big historical event that had a profound impact on your life?

Photos by Justus Martin – We Get Letters… Hi Shelly, I received the March Good News and I just wanted to let you know what a big impact the cover story on Billy Graham is having – the issues are flying off the rack!!! It really helps pro- mote your paper and message (Jesus) a lot if you have an eye catching cover and use that to draw people to be interested and pick up the paper. I put a few of them at other places around town and they are all spreading the message of God’s love and grace. Please keep putting interesting and eye-catching pictures on the front cover!!! We are the only Christian yoga studio in South Florida and your paper is a huge part of our outreach ministry. The paper sits on a display outside the front door where people walking by can pick it up so it reaches MANY unbelievers and seekers!!!! Thank you for being bold. I love the back cover as well and often put one on the table with the back cover displayed. :) In Christ, Carol Serwna, Barefoot Yoga Jupiter $+..; )4#*#/ &KXUFK 8QLWHG 3XOOV &RPPXQLW\ 7RJHWKHU .4% 4530/( 1"3,-"/% Publisher: Leslie J.
