Lawyers get a bad name. Sleezy lawyer jokes; we’ve all heard them! Anyways, my father defies all of those. He was a lawyer, but is also a scriptural/doctrine heavyweight. And he’s stayed true to God all these years.
Think Atticus Finch, ya’ll. Love ya Dad!
PS. A few years ago, there was an article written in the BYU Alumni magazine about this kind of idea of lawyers not being sleeze-bags. It was called “In Search of Atticus Finch” based on an idea by Mike Papantonio. I can download it as a PDF, but don’t know how to attach it to this blog. If you are interested, google it!
Example: Car Salesperson
This is Kenneth Christofferson (along with his lovely wife Leslie). He was my LDS bishop and continues to be a great friend and father figure to me and to countless others. This man’s name is no coincidence-he is a Christlike person who defies all stereotypes of the sketchy car-salesman. Bishop Christofferson has helped me out of many a bind, both spiritual and physical (you better believe he’s helped me more than once with my car!). He works at Ken Garff Chevrolet in American Fork, Utah (Ken works for Ken!). If you are in the market for a new car, check them out! http://www.kengarffchevrolet.com/
And yes, I got his full permission for this post. And no, he’s not paying me. 🙂
Who do YOU know that shatters negative stereotypes?
And who do you know who confirms stereotypes that writers are
a little goofy?
holding grudges over love is ancient artifacts…
