Modern Day Robinhood

Change the World!

Those were the words John Schneider wrote on the Fender guitar used in the Doonby the Movie Guitar Give-away contest. Initially, I thought they were just part of some cryptic clue to the puzzling incidents surrounding his mysterious character, Sam Doonby. However, the more I learn about my life-long hero, the more they seem to be the words that he lives by.

Yeehaa for Team Ripped Duke!
It’s no mystery that John Schneider has brought a lot of joy and happiness into my life since 1979. He has been an inspiration that led me to volunteer and help others as a teenager, something I still do today. I’ve admired his dedication to his family as a father and husband, but I must admit that he surprised me again when he posted his own personal fitness story on TeamBeachBody.com. John not only shares his story but his before and after pictures. His honesty and sincerity to help end obesity and encourage health has inspired me to do the same in my own life. 

John is becoming the poster boy to Change the World, one person at a time by working on his own body, mind and soul. Like my father always said the best way to inspire others is to talk the talk and walk the walk – John seems to being doing so.

Change the World

Body – Living healthy and inspiring others to do the same. Check him out on TeamBeachBody.com

Mind – Being Open to new ideas to make the world a better place. Check out John’s thoughts on Thanking the Monkey (http://www.thankingthemonkey.com/nybooklaunch.php).

Soul – Helping others through his various charitable events like his upcoming appearance at the Thrilla in Marilla

I posted all these pictures since it would be a crime to just choose one.

This real man of steel isn’t just changing the world one person at a time. He’s still out there working. Here are a few new projects coming our way. John may be the hardest working man in Hollywood, lol.

John & Jenn Gotzon from this Doonby still
will work together again in Gabriel.
John's costar from Doonby, Jenn Gotzon, is fast becoming my female hero. A strong, beautiful woman who is also walking the walk and a living example of how to be a Christian female in today's world. Check out her thoughts on real beauty

Thanks, John, for the inspiration to improve my life and those of the people around me.
Like my coach says,
