Glenn Rawson grew up on a ranch. His love of the outdoors carries to this day. It isn't unusual to find him outside in his free time, running, bird watching, hiking, or just taking a deep breath. Professionally, he has been a teacher for nearly 30 years, and that brought him to telling stories. He borrowed this philosophy for telling stories from Abraham Lincoln who said, “They say I tell a great many stories. I reckon I do, but I have learned from long experience that plain people...are more easily influenced through the medium of a broad and humorous illustration than in any other way.”

February:&nbsp; Robert Raymond
  
He loves people and especially his family. Glenn and his wife Debbie have seven children and two grandchildren. They live in Idaho. He is a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
