Have you heard the one about the 76-year old man living in overtime, loving life, and never looking back? You know, the one where the guy finished college, joined the Navy, traveled the world, raised an amazing family, fostered over 75 children, started two phenomenal and growing ministries, and is still moving forward at full steam despite two life threatening conditions. Well if you haven't yet and want to not only hear his story, but see how you can find the same purpose, drive, and fulfillment in your own life, check out this episode of The Remarkable People Podcast- The Jim Porter Story! 

GUEST BIO:

Born in Trenton, New Jersey and raised in Hamilton Square, Jim has lead an interesting and full life. After keeping his word to his mother to finish college, Jim traveled the world as a naval aviator and flight instructor with his wife Janice, built a very successful real estate agency in beautiful Pensacola Florida, started two amazing ministries that are still growing today, and has maintained a steadfast love for God and his family throughout the years. With 5 children, 13 grandchildren, and over 75 foster children, we can all learn a lot from Jim's leadership, perspective, and focus on what matters- God and family!

"This world is full of people sitting around waiting for God to show them what His will is for their life. It's more important to be IN His will, then to to know what His ultimate will is for you." - Jerry Falwell Sr.
