JIM RIPPEY talks about his career as a pro snowboarder, comparing it to an empty well. Welcome to another episode of This Is My Story. We spend some time discussing the idea of life being a well. Is my well empty or is it full? I guess this depends on my perspective of the meaning and fullness of life itself. Looking at Jim's highlight reel of his life in the 90's it would be easy to assume his well was full. After all, he is base jumping off of buildings, buses and cliffs. Everyone in snowboarding knows his name and wants to be successful like him. He was making millions of dollars as a pro snowboarder and traveling the world to do so. But it was largely a life with out God in it and as you hear from Jim, he describes this well as only a quarter full compared to his life now centered on God.
Jim has been retired from snowboarding since around 2010 and works as a Chaplin for a prison in Nevada. He and his wife have to children and are a blessing to many people they know.
I am excited to introduce him to you and have him on the podcast.
