Advice for Aspiring PA Annnouncers:

  • "[I've learned] that a husband needs to love his wife just as Christ loves the church." For Herbie Kuhn, Jesus is number one in his life, and second is his wife.
  • "If a lot more people would model their relationships like that, there would be a lot fewer divorces." Herbie encourages teens to remember that it should be 'Marriage until death', not 'Marriage until we get sick of each other'.
  • "First, obtain a solid education, focus on English classes, learn other languages, and understand the basis of linguistics. A solid grasp of the English language is key as well, so reading definitely helps. I highly recommend volunteering, getting your voice out there and noticed."
