Full of thoughtful insight and loving advice, Every Day Is an Audition is the book I wish someone had given me the day I left for college. It’s the book I’ll give my son the day he does.

Chad Gibbs, Author of God & Football and Love Thy Rival


No matter your age or stage in life, “Every Day Is an Audition” is a must read. This terrific book about life, love, faith and family is a lot like its author. Thoughtful and funny, “Every Day Is an Audition” is inspiring and empowering, entertaining and uplifting—all at the same time. In a world that badly needs it, this book will give all who read it encouragement for today and hope for tomorrow. Ric is a good friend, and this is a great book. I highly recommend it.
