My name is Brent Riggs. I’m married with seven kids, three of them adopted internationally, ranging from 22 to 3 years old. Our daughter Abby, adopted from Guatemala at six months old is battling Leukemia. We plan to adopt at least one more baby, probably from Ethiopia. You can find out more about our family at www.riggsfamilyblog.com
I’m the author of several blogs, books and a magazine, as well as owner of the popular Linky Followers and Linky Tools. “Life Without Debt” is a popular personal finance book currently being developed into a workshop series. “Terrorist to Evangelist: The Story of Kenny McClinton“, a fascinating story of a violent, wasted life being renewed for good. Here’s those links if you want to check them out: www.brentriggs.com, www.serioufaith.com, www.seriouslifemagazine.com, www.linkyfollowers.com and www.linkytools.com.
We live in a ridiculously small town in Oklahoma with a grand total of one stop sign. We have a little convenience store and everyone still waves at each other when you drive past them on our two lane roads. Little kids ride on the fire truck in the parade and the old men play domino’s “downtown” (downtown is the old empty building next to our hundred year old post office).

That’s enough of that. When it boils down to it, what I really love is writing, design work and sharing what I’ve learned with others in a way that is both enjoyable, and a genuine help to them. That starts first at home with my 7 children. I’ll be about 126 years old when they all finally grow up and leave home, so I’ve got lots of time to practice.
Glad to meet you. Drop me an email and introduce yourself… firstname.lastname@example.org
